Suck-y Customer Support from ICICI Lombard

This is the chat transcript that i am attaching from a recent conversation from a support guy for ICICI Lombard Insurance. More than the guy i was chatting with i was more furious with the process. How insane is it to say that you need to go to the “Nearest ICICI Lombard” branch. And this guy seems to respond every 10 minutes as he might be connected to other 1000’s of FURIOUS customers like me.

Whats the point in having the customer support that can not help. I dont care weather i have taken the policy Online, via Agent or what so other #%&*(. All i need is to “Get my job done“. Am i asking for more ??????????
