I'm in the land of slow and unreliable in'net, and have been since last year.

I try to do what I can, but when it takes an hour to load a page, some things get pushed back.

Hahahaha... XP

Okay. I'm reassured. :P

Yeah... I have junk to catch up on, too... >.>
Only mine's school-related...
Well, mostly. That's the priority junk. :P

Hehehehe...
All right. You'll inform us maybe tomorrow, then? :D

First_day_of_work_survived = 1;
Tiredness += very;
Hopefulness++;
Ambition++
Friends + several;

Anecdote:
In the lobby, waiting for my training class to get started, I overheard a guy talking to his former supervisor.
This was his last day. :o
Seems he's owned his own business for a while now, and it's doing well enough that he decided to quit his day job, and become self employed. ::)

This is a lot better than the guy who left my last place of employment, the day I arrived. He left the same way I did.

Here's to you anonymous lobby guy. I wish you the best. ;D

Stop doing that!

This is Say Anything, and I post or not post anything I want.

Thus saith the toast guru!

Hahahaha... XD

But I want to hear about the things that happen when you start actually telemarketing people... :P
At any rate, I hope the toast guru is having a good time at work. XD XP


Argh.
I figured out I might have bronchitis... :P
Not fun.
I can't walk from one class to the other without feeling like I'm desperately out of shape. XP
(PE, by the way, is above all the worst class I currently attend as of now. :P)

Today, I went completely and totally insane.  I spent the next 30 actions pushing a guy down stairs and looking for the manager.

I tried to send Blood a postcard, but it wouldn't load on this connection.

P.S.  Don't drink from the fountain.

Today, a solicitor called me. I answered with "Anomaly Research Centre, can I help you?" I think they broke.

Yeah...don't call any 979 numbers, Blood. It might be me. 8U

I won't be making outgoing calls.

When you call up to activate your credit card, I'm the guy who asks you for your mother's maiden name, asks if you want any other people's names attached to the account, and then tries to sell you an identity theft protection service (--which I get free for the next year. Yoink!).

I can also get calls from customers with questions or wanting their account settings changed, but mostly I just activate your card and work my way through the cross sell scripts before I can hit confirm.

Even though I'm not calling people, I have to be registered as a telemarketer in several states to work at a call center. It helps other call centers not hire me if I do something unethical here.


This is the sole opinion of the poster and in no way represents the interests or opinions of his employer or any other person or group.


That isn't the verbatim disclaimer, but they gave it to me inside a secured area, where we're not allowed to take any paper out (to help protect account numbers and such.)

When you work with people's credit card information, there is a lot of tracking and security, so they have a short list of suspects if something get's stolen or misused. For example, I have to password lock my workstation whenever I go on break. It actually makes the gravity of working in the finance industry very real, as you have a real sense of how much damage the stuff you work with could do in the wrong hands.

You can expect to see this disclaimer a lot, if I have to talk about my job, even though it is actually a nice place to work, and seems to be overall pretty ethical, compared to what I though of when they first made me fill out that registration.

Well that's good, I think.  That you'll not be making outgoing calls, I mean.

I wish I could sleep, but my schedule is all a-borked.
Maybe now.

I don't really know why I couldn't get to sleep.  Regardless, it feels good to be back at home.
