You know those automated tech support lines, the ones that make you answer too many questions before connecting you to the right department? Yeah, I hate those too.
Redditer floppybutton found an interesting method of skipping those steps in Apple's support line to connect to a human right away. Basically, you just drop a few F-bombs at the innocent robot on the other side of the conversation. Upon detection of that rage-filled word, Apple's automated line will connect the user right away to a human representative.
Best tip ever.
For other support lines you should use gethuman.com for customer service numbers that connect to humans.
