Called the 0-800 000 000 line and went to option 2 for world clock.  Went to Ozz and Sydney or Melbourne.  They are showing as still in winter time. i.e 3 hours behind us..  Maybe someone needs to load the ozz DLS file..

I like finding new ways to confuse the automated voice activated lady at the broadband helpdesk.

I find that telling it too many words gets you a person quickly rather than the short answers they want.

I like it when she gets angry and makes you press buttons as a punishment for not giving her the right question or answer

This kindof works for foreign call centres trying to sell you stuff as well. Just speak flat out Kiwi and they cant understand a word of it.
