I'm head of security at a large office building with a call center.

The southern part of our state was hit by storms yesterday. The people in the call center told me they were being bombarded with calls from people in areas where the power was out asking why their cable tv and internet weren't working.

I used to work at an AT&T call center. I know that feel, bro.

One more reason not to like you cannon. How dare you have a job that pays crap and gets abused by everyone while trying to give a free service...how dare you sir!

It got so stressful that my wife asked me to quit.

It's amazing how angry people get when you politely point out that they are stupid.

"Sir, I'm afraid your home wireless network will not reach you in the park three miles from your house."
"WHAT! I PAY FOR WIRELESS ACCESS, AND YOU'RE TELLING ME YOU WON'T PROVIDE IT?!?!?!?"
"No, sir, I'm just telling you that your wireless router has a maximum range of 300 feet. If you want wireless access at the park it would probably be best to purchase a mobile wireless card."
"I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PAY MORE MONEY JUST TO USE THE SERVICE I ALREADY PAY FOR!"

etc.

Hahaha yea I used to work picking up phones at a travel agency. I'd get one or two valid calls a day the rest were idiots bitching (usually at the airlines because a) a 20 year old can change an airlines business model b) because a travel agency can change an airlines business model).

I think the best one I had was when a customer didn't like the prices I was quoting for a direct flight from hong kong to london on BA but refused to take a cheaper connecting flight then yelled at me for being unhelpful.


Oak I agree I hate sitting in a room in front of a computer all day- probably why I started coming back here, to help me forget I do spend all day in front of a computer in a windowless room.
The greatest form of control which can go on forever until it is exposed is a tyranny you can't see, touch and taste (unlike totalitarian Govts). When you sit in a prison cell but can't see the bars, because people don't rebel against not being free when they think they're are.

It wasn't all bad. When people genuinely needed help and I was able to fix their problem, even if it took hours, it felt great. The problem was that the bitchers outnumbered those genuinely in need of help.

S6 of Dexter is annoying me.

Dexter has S6? What about his WS?

You can tell they had no idea what to do with the conclusion of S4, unfortunately, because just by itself it was quite good.

I just finished watching Dexter S6. It was just plain awful. Some of the dialogue was just painful to listen to and the villain wasn't all that interesting.

Looking into Bones and Miami CSI to fill the offbeat crime show niche.

I am suitably contrite and therefore unhappy. Happy now?

Feet and legs still from walking 61 kilometers in fourteen hours last saturday (that's 37,9 miles for you poor bastards who don't use the metric system). Still totally worth it.

I agree, but still love the show, actually looking forward to the final season, and how they plan on getting past how s6 ended...

Nowhere, me and a couple of mates had decided to try and walk a march of death, i.e 100 km in 24 hours. Unfortunately we walked mostly on asphalt which started to hurt as hell after a while, so we had to quit a bit earlier.

I haven't see the end of s6 yet... what shocking conclusion can they possibly have this time? Everyone finds out about Dexter?

I think the premise is played out, or they sacked the good writers and hired cheaper ones. The twist at the end of the last episode I watched was absurd.

That's because we each die a little bit inside everytime we buy something from GW to support our Empire hobby...

Even worse.

Deb realizes she's in love with Dexter. The older of the two serial killers has been dead for years. Dexter decides to carve up the killer in the abandoned church(that the cops have already  found) and gets caught by Deb. *twitch*
