Well, today was a pretty good day. Everything at HPI ran pretty smoothly — even customers were overjoyed to here me answering the phones with my silky smooth “Thank you for calling High Plains, this is Randal, how can I help you?”, instead of Henry’s “Dis is High Plains, How I help you?” and Jef’s “High Plains Internet, what the hell’s going on!?” Yes, HPI was good today. That work environment is really nice. I enjoy it a lot. Why? Read on …
So I get to Gateway at 3:25pm, nice and early. Clock in, find my new desk, sit down and get situated. Took my first phone call around 4:15pm. That went well. Then the headache really kicked in. Ugh, I thought, I’m okay. Next call. This call was about a mouse, and took like an hour to fix. Either the customers are complete fucking retards, or I am horrible tech support. Could be either. Anywho, by the end of that call, I have a runny nose. Take another call … this one lasts *forever*. I don’t even know what it was about. But it took so goddamn long I wanted to die. Took a break at 7:35pm, then lunch @ 8:20pm. Came back, and felt like shit. Pounding headache, sore, scratchy throat, runny nose, just shit. Then the lady’s video card wouldn’t work. AND I SPENT 95 FUCKING MINUTES ON THE PHONE WITH THIS MORONIC BITCH WHO SHOULDN’T OWN A COMPUTER AND WHO SHOULD BE SHOT IF SHE GOES NEAR ANY KIND OF ELECTRONIC DEVICE EVERY AGAIN! )(#q@%u)(#@@# I felt like shit, and this stupid bitch just tripped my trigger. I finally got off the phone with her at like 11:50pm. Took a 5 minute break, then took another easy phone call. Gateway sucks big fat donkey cock. I already dislike it a lot. And I really fucking hate being sick. Don’t forget that the whole time the fucking IT Draconians are marching the floor, looking for IT Policy Offenders, and the fucking ‘Work Force Management’ Nazis are running around making sure everyone is clocking in and out right on time and blah blah blah. Complete bullshit. And sick. What the fuck. I’m never sick. Fuck that.
Well, anywho, the worst part of the job is the mind-numbing amount of empty minutes I have where my mind wonders. Like, waiting for a reboot, waiting for a customer to stop being a freaking retard, waiting, waiting … I just sit there and my mind runs across stuff, and it’s all stuff that I want to stop thinking about, but it’s tough, and it all sucks. It really sucks to be having body pains due to sickness, emotional pains because of too much fucking thinking, and mental pains at people’s complete ineptness. Seriously, today was one of the worst days I have had in a *long* time. Yes, rather terrible. And I get to do it again in 6 hours! WOoOOOOooo!
*** 3 Way Update ***: First off, this other pair of boxers, by Ralph Lauren, are really comfy — I highly recommend them. Also, I tried my leather jacket on for the first time in a long time … man, I love that thing. It just feels so good, and I don’t look too bad in it either. And thirdly, I got the dice out of my truck and put them in the honda. Gotta have some flavor.
