Man who reads management text books hangs on phone to customer service for 15 hours

by | 4th, August 2012

ANDREW Kahn might well hold the world record for the longest time spent on hold. Kahn says he was kept on hold by Qantas for 15 hours. Kahn is a “marketing executive from the US” who claims that durting the call he read a 200-page management textbook (and remained awake!) , surfed the internet and did some other stuff. He says:

”I think the wait time was simply my determination to see what exactly they meant by a representative coming on the line as soon as possible.”

No-one every came. So. He called back and got through pretty fast. It’s a story that says more about the caller than the company, doesn’t it? Mr Kahn comes across as a pedant. He may even be member of the Society of Pedants, aka the Society for Pedants…

Update: Qantas say they have no record of the call.
