If the cust bothers to call us before they leave the country, we will inform them of roaming rates and advise them to get an international package to lower the roaming rates. However, most people don't call us before trotting off to Bumf*ckistan, they only call when they get back to beach about the ridiculously high bill they got from calling everyone and their dog from a foreign country.

I might make more money doing that, especially given certain unreasonable sales goals at work. :lol: :roll:

I've had several guys, when I give them the customer service number at the end of the call, ask if that is my personal home number. :roll: Yeah, because I totally have an 866 home number. :roll:

When we get big stains on the carpet here, the head of the cleaning staff will put little pieces of tape on them to let the janitors know where they really need to shampoo the carpet. The first time I saw them do this, I speculated that they were marking the best places to put the c4 for quick demolition of this place. :lol:

No sir, you don't get a loyalty discount if you're not signing a new contract. Our company doesn't give an ish about you if you're not under contract.

Wrack is a word

in the Shop Talk forum

o jester of the grammar police, he just didn't use it in the right context. Wrack is the past tense of the verb rack, as in "wracked with pain," or "wracked his brain for the answer."

you both have it wrong. I work for AT&T, and the cost of an early upgrade was previously $75 for a standard phone or $200 for a smartphone. Now it will be $85 for a standard phone and $250 for a smartphone.

Nope, you can get insurance for the iphone through asurion now, but you have to download it yourself through your apps store. It's 11.99 a month and has a 99, 149, or 199 dollar deductable based on which iphone you have. All the rest of the terms are the same as regular insurance.

Generally turns into a million questions, and when you try to talk them into buying now, they say they'll just go to the store and get a phone. Grrrrr. :x

I lived in Texas for the first 7 years of my life, my mom's whole side of the family still lives in Texas, and I can talk to people in Texas. For the most part, people from Texas have never behaved in a douchy fashion towards me.

Calls in about data overages on one of his lines, and spends more of the call beaching about his home internet service than talking about how his granddaughter "accidentally sat on" the internet button on her phone on 10 different occasions to the tune of 6.23mb. Riiiiiiiiight. :roll:

The customers who think that just because they've been a longtime customer (see 1 year) that they deserve a free (fill in the blank) and are righteously indignant when we can't give it to them. Usually angry white men in their 40's who live in the New York, New Jersey, Philly, Massachusetts area.

I would think they'd be happy that you got the cust off the phone in such a timely fashion. It's got to take less time to just give them the number they need to call than to argue with them that they've reached the wrong phone company. :roll:

I don't see why not. It's not an internal number. We send that number to customers all the time. I just figured you'd like to know.

that tried to tell me that the cust was going to upgrade one of their phones to the mifi and use it under their voice plan. :roll: Rep hung up on me when I informed her that the cust would have to add a line with a separate data plan to get the mifi. :roll:

The person that responds with "mmmhmm" every third word out of your mouth during the recap. :roll: It's like, dude, let me get through the recap and then you can tell me if you understood everything I just said. :roll:

And it's almost always women that do this to me. Call in, say they want to upgrade one of their lines, start out the call knowing what kind of phone they want, but when you start to order the phone, they start talking about 3 other phones that they kinda liked, and what is your opinion on them. :roll: You spend 45 minutes trying to talk them into buying any of the 60 plus phones ...

At Smiths, the local grocery store in my area, you get the chance to get points for everything you buy, 1 point for every dollar, and it goes for a 3 month cycle. At the end of the 3 month cycle, they send you a coupon that acts as money, based on the points you accrued. So if you got 700 points, you get a 7 dollar coupon, plus a bunch more coupons tailored to the stuff ...
