Semantic hotline experience

I called the agent with my problem, who told me I needed to talk to the editor. The editor told me that he was not the person in charge, and to please hold for the adaptationer. The adaptationer referred me to the arranger, who said to get in touch with the issuer, who passed me on to the originator. The originator transferred me to the processor, who was neither authorized nor willing to deal with my issue. By this time I had been on the phone for 1 hour and 55 minutes including the time I had been listening to upbeat muzak and please hold the line messages. Oh what to do!

Title explained
The synonyms this account toys with are the result of a search for the German term “Bearbeiter” – in other words, they are a semantic field.
