Nothing causes me more dread than having to call a customer service number. We’ve all been there. Something goes awry with a credit card account, phone bill, or exclusive macramé membership, and the only action left is to call a number for help. gethumanSadly, help usually comes in the form of confusing phone menus, redirections, and Musak. True, some recorded voices are becoming friendlier and more human-like, but it still ain’t the real thang. So how do I avoid wasting time in phone limbo?

The answer is with gethuman, a site that lists customer service numbers and shortcuts for reaching a live flesh-and-blood person for almost 400 companies. With gethuman, the wait is finally over.
