I saw this beautiful gem on Marko's blog today. If you are frequently annoyed at automated answering systems from businesses and simply want to speak to a human when you call customer support, check out gethuman.com.
It's a massive list of businesses. It will either list a direct phone number to put you in touch with a human or the phone number + the specific prompts you need to key in to get to a human. THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL THING!
