Joys of Working in a Call Center

I do customer service and it is the worst. If any of you have worked in a call center you know exactly what I am talking about. For those who don’t know, here’s why: Because we get treated like kids in elementary school Though we don’t have a bell ringing anymore, we have phones with wonderful little tracking devices built into them. Your life revolves around the phone. As soon as you get to work, you type your code into

Comb Over Fuck Up

What’s worse than coming to work and seeing a Dilbert comic posted in your cubicle with the name of the character covered in white-out with my name replacing it. Hilarious. Maybe hearing the fat-fuck in the next cube over farting up a storm all day. That’s worse. Or what is even worse is when it eventually wafts my way. Yeah, you’re ugly and you stink, no wonder why your wife left you. Lunch time. Great, fat-fuck happens to come in

The Economic Shituation

I’m part-time and of course am one of the first to get notified that things might change because of the economic shituation. Takes the fuckers in charge of this crazy shit 3 months to figure out that they’re going to do this: 1. Bring a new opening to my attention in a backwards, vague way, which is done in a confusing, unplanned “meeting.” 2. In a second meeting, requested by me, come out in the open with what they actually

Life of a Designer

A coffee mug sitting on the table; drips of it dry and crusted to the sides, some still streams down like rain. A sluggish rain, almost like time has taken a back seat and decided to go at its own rate. My eyes are weary now; the computer screen is getting brighter by the minute but, somehow, it appears razor-sharp. Almost seems beautiful; like I could just jump inside and end up in some paradise of my own. I say

What a Bitch

When I was in college I got a job in loss prevention at a major department store. I was working on my degree in Criminology, so it seemed to fit. So I go to work on my first day and am told I will be cleaning out dressing rooms, I assumed I would be cleaning them out that day only, or that we would all share that responsibility. I was sadly mistaken. I cleaned out dressing rooms ALL day every

Junior Supervisor Witch

Insubordinate, Disorganized, Chatty, Lazy, Witch gets the junior supervisor position because when she was hired, she was willing to take more hours than other workers in department could do at the time. I and others have earned the respect of our supervisor by completing assigned projects in a timely manner, being easy to work with, flexible when covering for the previously mentioned IDCLW because she has one kid home with “the sniffles” and a second child likely to catch them…

Restaurants Suck

Working in restaurants flat out sucks. If you do not play a daily game of grab ass with the management or try to jerk them off in some way, like giving them bro-handshakes/bro-hugs while making cliche` jokes that aren’t even funny, you will not advance into the “inner circle” where raises/promotions are given only to: -the slacker new guys AKA “cool guy on the run from the cops” -the clueless new jacks with the ‘cool’ 1996 style piercings, shave heads,

Fat Sweaty Betty

Okay, first of all I want to say I am thankful to have a job due to the economy. However, since I am still working on my BS degree I am working in a cube part time. Basically it pays some bills and I have over-priced insurance. It’s not easy to work when you feel that you are a number and you feel your job is “So easy even a caveman could do it.” The company that I work for

This Has Been Place

My boss is supposed to start work at 6:30 a.m. I used to be scheduled in at 7:30 a.m. but the duties for the early morning didn’t have me physically in the office until about 8 a.m. Recently I was changed to 7 a.m. and I’m in by 7:20 a.m. because I hurry. Why? So I’m in my seat before my stupid boss. She shows up at 7:30 a.m. (something we didn’t know before my early start) and goes home

Technical Service Rep

Let’s see. If there was ever a job that made you realize how fucking dumb the human race is, it’s customer service of any type. the next time I say press the select button and a customer says “press the power button??” I’m going to fucking rip my phone out of the cubicle and slam it on the fucking ground…. not to mention… when a fucking customer calls me an idiot and says that I don’t know how to do
