I think I may be becoming one of those. The blasted bank pin card reader died on me so I had to phone the bank on an 0845 number to order a new one; four minutes of recorded announcements on a call you're paying for  before you're given the option of keying in any choices. And they put the phone down on me the first time, so I called a second time and went through all the security james bond stuff but got the mother maiden name wrong (of course I don't use my mum's real maiden name, since you ask), quickly straight away said the right word but they said I only had one chance. So, there was a third  call.....

I think anybody in that situation would be prone to becoming a little curmudgeonly. I ordered a new credit card and pin number over 3 weeks ago now. Considering the last experience I had I do feel I may become a little irate on the phone.
