According to the National Post, a new service aimed at passive-aggressive German citizens, allows you to call a hotline to give "the person on the other end a verbal lashing." (You could also just call Bell Canada and yell at them for free).
The creators of the service found inspiration in their own stressful daily routines. The way Schulte sees it, he is doing people a favor by providing a release for pent-up aggravation and helping to avoid altercations in the workplace or at home.
"If you're stressed out at work, you go home and your partner gets an earful," he said. "Even though it's not her fault."
When callers are not creative in their cursing, or find themselves tongue-tied, operators on the hotline prod them with cheeky provocations like: "That's the third time I've heard that today -- is that all you've got?"
