Two German businessmen have launched a new hotline service for angry people to vent their frustrations. Schimpf-los, (Swear Away) has operators available seven days a week to listen to people scream and swear – and they’ll even give as good as they get, provoking customers into getting all their rage out.
“We don’t judge people who are angry,” said Ralf Schulte, who set up the hotline with his business partner Alexander Brandenburger. ”It happens. It’s natural. With us you can blow off steam no strings attached,” he told Reuters.
The entrepreneurs found inspiration to set up the hotline from their own busy lives. Shulte and Brandenburger feel that they are providing a service which gives people an outlet for getting their anger out, without taking out frustrations on their loved ones and people around them.
I think I’d find it much more satisfying to let the actual person who’d angered me hear it, but can also see the benefits of a hotline like this… I feel sorry for the poor operators though!
