Express Line for Waiting on the Phone Printer Friendly Version
Some supermarkets have it: Folks who only buy three items or less can line up at an express counter so they can get out quickly and don't have to wait behind someone who is doing the monthly shopping for his family of six people.
The same principle should be used on the phone when you call the computer helpline or your social security company and they ask you to "please hold the line" for half an hour or more. I would like to see an option for "express calls": you would get to talk to a live person much quicker, but the phone call whould be limited to one minute (after that, you would be automatically disconnected). This would be enough time to ask very simple questions, for anything more complicated you would have to go the long way.

"Eat my Meal"-Agency Printer Friendly Version
Do you know this embarrassing situation? You are sitting in a restaurant and having a good time, but suddenly you realize that the food on your plate is way too much! Even worse, your meal is so delicious that you wouldn't want to offend the cook by sending half of it back. So what can you do? That's where the "Eat my Meal"-Agency comes into play. Just pick up the phone and dial their number - shortly after, one of their guys walks into the restaurant, sits down beside you and clears your plate with a smile. In the paid edition of this service, your rescuer might be a handsome looking man or woman with good manners and conversational skills, but I can also think of a free trial version where they send you a bunch of hungry students. :-)
Reward: I want to use this service for free, of course.
