Somedays you want to complain.
Being put off is a pain.

But if they think you are meek.
They also think you are weak.

Be a pain that doesn't go away.
When you know you are right don't sway.
I know some wish I would go away.

I would,if they would let me speak.
And stop treating me like I'm weak

Keep trying

Keep trying Barb - I've been there when people won't give you an answer, you just have to keep at it, show them you won't give up!You might make yourself unpopular ( I have !) but they have to learn to respect you by answering.
