Customer Service??? Ada Ke?

My house phone has been out since Sunday. I made a call to the Telekom ‘100’ number to report the fault and as they were unable to give me a date and time when the technician would come by, I left them my handphone number with a reminder to call me first.

I came home during lunch hour today and I found a short note left in my postbox. According to the note, the technician came to the house but nobody was home and on the note too was a number for me to call back to fix another appointment. I immediately dialled the number but nobody picked up and I repeated many, many times. Damn it, semua mati liao izzit?

I then called Telekom again to complain and asked if there is any other number I could call besides that ‘cheh kai’ number. “Yes, Yes, Puan can call this number 03-787xxxxx”, answered the CS executive. Aiyoh, I reached a fax line la. I called Telekom CS again and yelled at the executive.

Me : Hello, this is Ms Tan and my report number is XXXXX.. How many times do I need to call to get my complaint attended to huh? Your stupiak technician came and left a number for me to contact and not a soul pick up the phone and your most brilliant colleague gave me a fax line to call. Very funny izzit?

CS : I’m sorry. I can put in another fault report for you.

Me : You got my handphone number there?

CS : Yes, yes, got.

Me : Thank you.

Later at about 4.30pm I saw one familiar-looking technician doing some work at the phone lines ‘pillar’ (not sure what’s that called) across the road from my house. Happily, I walked over and approached that chap and asked if he’s repairing my line.

He : Bukan. I don’t have work order on yours.

Me : There, this one my report number. Can help me check ah?

He : Tak boleh. I’m very busy now. You wait and see, maybe tomorrow la.

Me : My house across the road only. Afturds you come and see la. Then tomorrow you no need to come lor.

He : I busy la.

**Sighs** I walked back to my house.

Thats why its a good thing my line are operated by Maxis..abit better la..not perfect.

But imagine this Nyonya..I called AirAsia hotline...30 minutes waiting still didnt speak to anyone. Lagi geram. I guess Tony Fernandez hire only one operator to cut cost! sometimes paying more is good.

LOL! Mana ada? when I call that line..a sleepy sounding voice picked up..I asked, Maaf..tidur ke? WTF am I apologising for???? LOL
Action because of monopoly mar...though I have a Telekom line, it's only for standby purpose only. The handphone is more reliable.

Btw, wish I had known earlier, then can borrow you my shotgun *wink wink*

The management should:

reward every CS RM20* for every happy customer.

Who asked u to go out after calling them 2 come and repair??? But actually...things don't seem to have improved despite the so-called "privatisation"!!! As ASTRO always puts it, "Service is currently unavailable!" *%@#+$!!!
