    This isn't exactly a weighty concern, but...

    I hate phone menus that make me talk. Please, just allow me to push buttons. And what's with the canned voice being all chipper and casual? "Great." "OK." "Sorry, I didn't get that."

    And why is may utility account number 19 DIGITS? There are 6.6 billion people on the planet. That's a 10-digit figure. A little under 303 million in the USA- nine digits. I don't get it. Sure, a person might have more than one account, but think of all the people who don't have accounts with this company.
