This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
So you do what other companies are smart enough to just pay a bunch of Indians pennies on the hour for.

I am customer support but I can't tell you what company for or I'll get doxxed

It's an AARP alternative, we supply seniors with benefits and stuff, like discounts for hotels, restaurants, prescriptions, etc

Very conservative environment + company but everyone is super friendly and the training is easy so far

Hmm...
Do you get to work from home or do they make you go into the call center? If you're just answering the phone / looking stuff up on a computer, that seems like something that'd be great for remote work during this Covid bs.

No I go into work at a call center. You can work from home after you've been there long enough but I don't think I'm going to. I'd be too distracted to get things done.

Also no one in a 100 mile radius of here takes corona even remotely seriously. It's been business as usual since the virus started except sometimes people wear masks into grocery stores

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
Its a shit job but a shitty office job is miles better than any customer-facing retail.

Just please don't screw up by coming in to work high or with a post-trip hangover.

Yeah I have two computer monitors and my own little area that I can decorate, I feel like this is my first serious, adult job

Not planning on tripping during weekdays anymore. I def don't want to lose out on a second paycheck for me and my bf for doing almost nothing all day. 90% of calls are easy immediately fixable issues / answers

Thanks for your concern btw I appreciate you caring

He's well off not rich. His family is rich. We don't have to worry about going hungry or anything, they help us if we need it. His car was so crappy so we borrowed his mom's alternate car for example. And last week she just told us to keep it and transferred the insurance and everything over to him.

They're kinda like the "no handouts" kind of rich people and don't help us super excessively.  The car thing was the biggest thing they did. His sister also helped us get the house we currently live in.

I've never had a customer service job that didn't make me want to tie a noose and do a backflip off the chair. Guess it depends on the clientele. Only time people weren't total assholes was when I was painting houses, just picky, which is okay.

Guess we're opposites on that front. Couldn't pay me to sit round all day. Have to keep moving otherwise I'll start getting depressed. If you rolled an okay CS job, then count yourself lucky and hope it's not just a calm before the storm deal.

I'd say it's less about the clientele and more about the client. That is, some people are more tailored for customer service interaction, and some are more tailored for other things.

For example, I know a lot of people who work manual labor jobs, and love the exercise, being outside, etc. Me personally, I would absolutely despise any job where I had to exert myself all day. Some people have no tolerance for bullshit and wouldn't be able to put up an amicable front to annoying customers all day. I have no problem doing that, and in fact look forward to calls to kill time and let me do stuff.

It just depends on what the person is suited for. Sorry for not responding to your PMs btw, I'll get to them soon I just don't go on the internet as much as I used to.

All good. Just leaving you a heads up. I'm gutting the interior of my truck camper to insulate it for the winter and refurbish it. I've got a trailer being built that can support the camper without bottoming out the shocks over a few years. This stuff'll all be coming together in the next month or so.

I'm striking up a deal with my workplace to see if I can live in their parking lot like a typical homeless millenial. It'll save me a lot of gas money and travel time, and probably a lot of wear on my heart which can't afford the beat downs anymore. Only catch is parking lots don't have internet. So I'll likely be going dark for long stretches of time unless I want to haul my sorry ass and a labtop to a tim hortons or something.

Depending on when I next hop around, take care of yourself Class. Don't be a shit person and don't let whatever shit you got behind you rule your life. Good luck out there.
