    C. Ask the customer to repeat the information
    E. Place them on hold until you can get someone else to deal with their call

    When dealing with an angry customer, it is important to focus on finding a solution rather than just talking about the problem. Spending too much time discussing the issue without taking any action may frustrate the customer further. Asking the customer to repeat the information can be seen as a lack of attentiveness and may aggravate them. Similarly, placing the customer on hold until someone else can assist them can be perceived as a lack of priority and may escalate their anger. Sympathizing with the customer's problem, apologizing for the wait time, and actively working towards a resolution are all recommended approaches for handling an angry customer.
