This could also be applied to shop jobs. Just substitute "rep" for "cashier."

You know, speaking of an assault by SC types, has this latest incarnation of the site been getting hatemail the way the last ones did? If so, I wouldn't ask that it be posted the way it used to be, but those nasty letters were always a kick to read.

The site never used to get that much, since as far as I'm aware it's been worked on a common-sense basis. I've had one through the 'contact admin' form claiming that the Vinegar Boy saga was cobblers, but I ignored it with the lack of literacy involved. Other than that, I can't remember anything.

This site rules!

I'm so glad a friend told me about this place, it's one of my favourite stops on the superhighway now.

No, no, you're going about it all wrong!

*Pulls out a sniper rifle, climbs a tower, and waits for SCs*

Much more efficient.

I like how some people think we hate all customers. Not true at all. We just hate the complete and utter morons that we do sometimes deal with.

It's interesting seeing all the people complaining about foreign call centers. Maybe I'm just lucky, but I have never had to be routed to one. Perhaps it's because I call at a decent time of day?

Thing 2, people on both sides are so busy generalizing that "every" CSR or "every" customer is mean or rude, they fail to see that about 95% of the time, things go smoothly with the other party. Honestly. It's really rare that I get a bad CSR on anything, (it happens occasionally, though, and I can minimize it by behaving myself), and the vast majority of my customers are great.

The old turd that wrote a letter completely in caps complaining that he doesn't speak "dothead or spanish or slanteyed" needs to be taken out and shot.

What bothers me more was that at the bottom it says all comments are read and approved before they're displayed! So someone, somewhere at that site thinks that's a remotely acceptable post...

If I remember rightly (and even if I do, it may well have been chance) this site doesn't do well after publicity. For example, shortly after the Smart Money article (end of 2002 or so) the site was hacked, and I believe at least two others were shortly after some sort of outside publicity but can't remember when or what at this point. Probably coincidence...
Now the trouble about trying to make yourself stupider than you really are is that you very often succeed.

I put up a comment at the end of the article that hasn't been approved - I made sure that Barefootgirl and Spiffy were credited for their help, but it's not gone up yet.

Quoth myswtghst View Post
That article is how I found y'all. Great article, and I really appreciated your contributions, as they were right on the money!
Ditto. Actually, my intro mentioned the article before I found this thread...

Definitely agree with myswtghst
