Is my hair getting pointy?
Just got email from my manager that my application to be a Performance Manager has been submitted.
There are twelve openings.
Last I heard, they didn’t even have twelve applicants yet.
Granted, I have very little management experience. The last time I was made a manager, I told them not to make me one, because I wanted to keep my hands on the machines. But I know call centers inside and out, and I just don’t really have the temperament any more to take calls, at least from the general public. In-house call centers, we’re all cow-orkers and have to be nice. These people are friggin’ idiots.
True call from two nights ago…
He: “So, like, I’m not sayin’ the stuff on these sites are illegal or anything, but do you block certain websites?”
He: “‘Cause I know China does.”
Me: “Sir, we’re not China.”
Yeah. I gotta get off phones.
