View Full Version : Well, how the hell are ya?
I've worked in CS for a while. Did about five years as a Nursing Assistant in nursing homes, and another five years in pest control.
OK, so I spent five years nurturing and another as a hired assassin. Gimme a break, I had to make a living!
Anyhow, I am currently working in a large home improvement company on their service desk. Most customers rock! But there are some...
By the way, did I say "Hi all?" Glad to be on this board, it's hilarious and supportive (from what I've read).

Ha ha. Five years in a nursing home and five years pest control? So, ten years pest control then? LOL
Just kidding. But the way some of the stories about old people go ... ;)
Well...most of the old people were very cool. There was of course, some fear about their situation (being old and checking out) that I could deal with. Some were simply Sucky Customers. Nothing done for them was right. And their families could be worse. Y'know, like: "OK, I understand you live in the same city as your Mom/Dad, Gramma/Grampa, so why don't you come visit their lonely asses more than once a month? And why do you ream me in orfices I didn't know I had for things we don't regularly do and you and the Resident haven't requested?"
Pest control was more fun. At least I could kill bugs and varmints.
:welcome: to CS.
Sounds like an interesting career.
I see you also work in a home improvement store.
I know you must have some interesting tales.
Thanks for the welcome, folks.
And Ree, I have a question: How can I change the tag under my name from "Bagger" to "Service Desk"? Perhaps I missed it in the UserCP, or maybe I need to email a Mod?
Actually, I think that title is based on how active you are. As you participate in the forums, you move up the ranks.
I assume you want service desk, as that's your job description?
I will ask our 'tech' guys on the admin/mod team and get back to you if it can be changed.
