Nationwide counselling service could fit in a large elevator


Got a call from Whats Up today. They wanted some money so that they can run their counselling service for kids who ring up about child abuse, questions on sexual orientation and the like. The service is sponsored by Telecom and the Yellow Pages.

I rung them up to see how long that it would take to answer their phone. I waited 15 minutes as all their "trained counsellors were busy", the ansaphone said in a hip cool voice.

All three of them.

Nationwide.

I rang up 15 mins later and the call was answered straight away. Is there a demand for this service, or are the trained counsellors doing other work on the phone as well when one cant get through?
