I rarely ask for any sympathy on a whinge but this minute I do.
Having just come off 40 minutes straight torture to a call center most likely located in China (I didn’t ask) I need my ears checked. My own voice verges on being gravelly (something to do with my larynx); other women’s, particularly those in far far far away lands? Their pitch is so high I can barely make out what they are saying. Give me a bird’s twitter but that was something else. In the end to shorten the agony, and after she had read me some lengthy statement, I just said yes. I don’t know what I have agreed to, neither do I care any longer.
