Empathy is not customer service

I have noticed a trend where customer service try to show empathy when you call, they state how they understand the issue must be frustrating/annoying/whatever – however it does feels very scripted in many cases. The real problem is, it is not customer service, I don’t call for empathy but to get a problem sorted quickly and efficient and that is an area lots of customer service operations fails on.
