Grembiseech: /grem bi seeech/ My cell phone company has a whole lovely array of grembiseeches working for them. Works out really well for them and the way they put erroneous charges to my account that can never be resolved or even disputed properly because I can't actually carry on a decent conversation with any of them. Me thinks part of customer service training is a course on the art of being a grembiseech in order to make communicating with them as painful and inefficient as possible. Etymology: greet + gremlin (adept at subverting or sabotaging mechanical systems) + Bit*% + beseech (to address or request earnestly) Created by: diyan627.
