So, I'm driving my co-worker to work this morning. By the way, her and I work in Insurance, not the Wireless industry... I can't help but overhear her talking out her neck on her phone- quite loudly- about the iPhone.. "You got Sprint? Yeah I got Sprint too. They comin' out wit da iPhone 5? Yeah I went to da store da other day and da girl there showed me a picture of the iPhone 5 ...

..so that it spells out SWEAR WORDS for the noobs who share your desk when you're not there. This only works on the non-flat style keyboards. I've done it before. :lol: Just take a key or a small screw driver, flick out the original key and move 'em around, press the new key in and press down until it *clicks*. :wink:

If you speak too slowly, I remember that I hate stupid people. 4. If you talk like you know more than me or are better than me, I wish for you to go fall off a cliff. 5. If ...

Wouldn't it be cool if you could bring in an air horn into the call center and just blow the hell out of it at random? Or whenever does something stupid? Or... "Thank you for calling.. *BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPPP!!!!!* ..How can I help you?!" :D

So, alot of times at my job I will ask for the person's name to bring up their account. It really, REALLY, frustrates me, when some people do this: Me: Ok, can I have your name, please? Cust: Yes, it's Joe. Spelled 'J-O-E' Me: *waiting*...... /;| ...... Me: And your last name?? Cust: Gastiglionattiosphereospotshipshere.......... .

I see, Jamster is still at that crap? They were doing that back in the day when I worked for T-Mobile Customer service between 2004-2005. I can't tell you how many angry moms and dads would call up and say their kids would never EVER do something like that, and "YOU TAKE THOSE CHARGES OFF RIGHT NOW!" Riiiiiiight. :lol:

...to carry food like what the cafeteria offered. Within one day. ONE DAY!!! 3 out of the 4 NEW machines broke down. The new coffee machine was using cold water, not hot. The new frozen food machine stopped taking dollar bills. The Coke/Sandwich machine got all jammed up. Sandwiches (again, new items) were put on the top line of the snack machine. The sandwiches were too FAT so that when someone bought them and they proceeded to drop down, ...

Don't ever get a "Written Warning"
Jul 29, 2011, 2:41 PM
in the Shop Talk forum

So, really early this month I got a written warning because I wasn't selling enough, wasn't performing up to the "goal" for X amount of months in a row. The last 2 weeks I've stepped up my game, blew a hole out the box, and my scorecard now warrants a $525.00 bonus. So just out of curiosity I remember that warning letter I got before, and ask my boss about it. Turns out that because I am on a 30-day ...

Ok, so this is kinda shop-talk related, I say 'kinda' because I no longer work in the wireless industry (used to), I now work in insurance. So, I do customer service, and we are required to sell X-amount of AARP memberships per month. The department I work in has low call volume, so each membership we sell has alot of "weight" to it.' This dude calls in, I take care of his billing issue, my computer prompts me to ask him to ...
