Called the cable  company about my bill and was transferred again for the 3rd time.

I wanted him to, to take responsibility, by fixing the bill and, to be sympathetic and understanding.

        

I was told I had to talk to someone else and I was transferred a 4th time. He was rude and unsympathetic. 

        

To have me talk to someone else, for me not to be upset. He  got me to agree to talk to someone else, but I remained irritated and upset.

                                

Tight shoulders, knot in my stomach, angry at him and all the time it was taking. Better and calmer, once I got to right person. 

Initially I felt uneasiness in the stomach – I’m a little embarassed for being so angry at someone only trying to do their job, but satisfied that my problem was fixed.
