many licks


many licks, originally uploaded by glo-riah.

i have a jar of these on my desk.
love the color and
love the candy
love the fact that eating one
makes me feel okay
about quitting my job.

i don't understand how human beings
can feel entitled to speak unkindly
to someone on the other end of a
phone line.

i was in tears last night
and my stomach was in knots this morning
over a few unkind words
that went straight to my heart.

be kind to one another, peeps.
you have no clue the damage
your words can do.

i'm sorry someone hurt your heart.
people suck sometimes.

don't worry, you'll find a job that's right for you. like in a craft store, giving craft lessons. that's what i see you doing.

something with your hands.

yeah, it wasn't just one caller,
i felt like an idiot because i got
flooded with the calls with bad lines!!
one of the rules of the call center is you CANNOT ask your caller to repeat themselves more than once.
if you don't get the info
you must figure out another way to get the info.
ie: ask them to spell it, ask them if YOU are spelling it correctly, use phonetics.
after that, you're screwed.
call me screwed.
and hurt.

but yeah, i'd love to work in a craft store.
love to teach
love to create.
but there are only two sbook stores here, and neither is hiring. :(
so i applied at GAP
and at sea world.
we'll see where i end up.

sorry about the lollis.
i wish they came in sugar free too!!

awwwee....so sorry people were mean. that sucks.

i am a firm believer that the world would be a nicer place if everyone were required to spend a year working in customer service.

Katrina said...

I completely agree with Stacey. Everyone should work in customer service for a year.

That being said, come work in lip gloss with me!!

you take a lickin' and keep on tickin' girl friend. Everything is not for everyone and it takes a strong person to step away and say "No THANK you!"

I could never do that job, I would be yelling right back. And I never lose my cool unless the person on the other end is undecipherable and hasn't a freakin' clue.

BR@NDY said...

I loose my cool sometimes, but only after they iniate it. I so sorry. hugs...
