I notice that some of them are variations on saying "Real person" over
and over. You say "representative" or "agent" over and over.

Not surprisingly, there's a database of phone "hacks" for just this sort
of problem.

gethuman database; "bypass automated phone systems, talk to a live
person"

For example: Amazon.com -- Don't press or say anything

As I understand it, a little humor on Fridays is okay, so I want to tell
you what I think would make for the ideal audio response system. I
decided this after being bounced here, there, and everywhere else this
morning by Verizon's audio response system. I think the idea system
would begin by saying, "To bypass this whole system and talk to a real
person, press zero or say 'Real person.'"

Actually, believe it or not, my brother-in-law will do that. I've heard
him on the phone with one of those systems, saying "Real person" over
and over.

(It seems that the fastest way to get a real person is to deliberately
keeping messing up your responses.)
