    Ive always got through quicker in the morning.
    I think if it wasnt for my long name, i wouldnt have even taken 2 minutes to speak to them. Their system doesnt seem to like my details and/or accent.

    You arent alone. They never seem to like me either. For some reason, they never like my last name- its easy, but they can never spell it for some reason.
