How to talk to a human

When I need to talk to a human, I usually guess ways to make the automated machine give up. Today I stumbled into this list of escape codes for many common companies. Hopefully, by posting here I'll be able to find it next time I call a company.

By the way, your title reminds me of the book HOW TO COOK FOR HUMANS from a Hallowe'en episode of The Simpsons.

I believe the title ended up being "How to Cook For Forty Humans". As more dust was blown away to reveal the full title, you then had

"How to Cook Humans"
"How to Cook For Humans"
"How to Cook Forty Humans"
"How to Cook For Forty Humans"

which let them stretch the gag out rather significantly.
