thank you for your clearly honest reply, I too share a hatred of
voice response systems .. i prefer to press a button too ..

   "If i can call the xx digit international number
    i can surely press one or two more .. "

Alternative suggestion to quitting Paypal outright:
   Get somebody you trust to handle Them // "as the most convenient way .. "

* not a paypal stooge .. think a little "out of the box" thinking may 
help :)

Highest regards
