A need for pestering

I really don’t like annoying people. I personally am not a fan of being pestered, or nagged, so I try m absolute hardest to refrain from doing what bothers me to others.

That being said, the way the world is going, nagging will soon become the new normal.

I’m not sure if I’m the only one who has made this observation, but as of late, it seems as though pestering and consistent reminders are the only way to get through to some people, depending on the context.

The doctor’s office, for example. How many times must we call before we get an appointment or an update on something? How about insurance companies? In addition to being a complete nightmare to deal with, insurance companies literally don’t pick up phones, from what I’ve experienced, and there isn’t even an option to speak to an operator. You have to have an extension or a code or whatever other bull they ask for.

Why is it becoming so hard to get simple answers nowadays? It seems to me as though the more technology progresses, the more difficult it becomes to simply speak with someone and delve into what it is you want, or need. Doesn’t it make more sense to just cut to the chase, rather than having to go through system after system and often times getting so frustrated you end up hanging up halfway through the process?

I’m detecting a serious veer off-topic, so I’m gonna bring it back to what I started with: pestering.

I hate it, you hate it, we all hate it, but if pestering and nagging are what’s needed nowadays to get simple answers, so be it. Chances are, you’ll end up annoying someone enough they will get back to you, which is all you were trying to achieve in the first place.
