That's a lot of menus!

I was changing the mailing address on a bill, and it took 2 minutes and 45 seconds of just going thru the menus to get to the place where I could hold for someone to take the new address. Sheesh!

What do you do in this case?

This morning on the elevator, we were squished in there, as is usual. I was right by the buttons when we stopped on the 2nd floor for even MORE passengers. A guy squeezed in, and instead of asking me to press 7 for him, slide his hand in front of me to push the button. I swear, if he had touched/rubbed my belly, we would've had some words. Is there some reason he couldn't just ASK me to press 7 for him? I couldn't move back, there were 2 people lined up behind me...what would you do if you were him? Ask or try to stealth-ly press the button??

Oh definitely ask. In this day and age, my hand reaching for a button could just as easily be accused of harassment had I accidentally touched you.

I'm not suggesting you would necessarily make that exact call, but rather I am speaking generally
