Mid-Week Humps

I read about telemarketing. It's like seeing it from the other side and interesting. I like the "get rid of a telemarketer" strategy here (It's R rated). The only telemarketing I see is the type at work. I don't hang in the call centre part because the noise drives me crazy, and telemarketing is annoying but it's part of my job (to distribute scripts and monitor campaigns), and it is one of those things: damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Ian decided to be nice to me today, and invite me to meet a friend of his who works for Canon - an IT person. Wow right there? I don't know what it is about IT people but those in business shirts wear odd ties. This one had a tie with a multi-coloured mouse.

Reasons why I'm up so late?

1. Going through a stupid presentation.
2. Reading paperwork for this presentation.
3. Why? Because Ian didn't feel up to doing it (hence my lunch invitation).

Conclusion: bastard.

ps: I feel sick when the receptionists drool over him. I think they're turned on more by his company credit card (Gold AMEX) than anything else.
I don't know what it is, but girls are having more orgasms over designer handbags.

You know those IT guys, they're a bit eccentric. But they're good people to be allies with, trust me.

Worked in a call centre a few years ago- inbound customer service though, not the annoying harassing type. I reckon it's one of the easiest bludgy jobs ever, if you can get withstand irate customers and a sore-ass. I smoked and drank coffee to my heart's content back then.

Don't stay up too late now.

For sure. Be on the wrong side of an IT guy and it's a horrible thing. I'm super nice to the IT person, that way if anything goes wrong they don't take too long to repair whatever it is.

Incoming has its stress, but sure is better than being hung up on (outbound). Did you end up quitting your smoking after moving onto bar work?

I quit smoking for 7 months after being in the bar for a year and 5 months. Unfortunately, depression hit me again so I went back. Now that I'm diabetic, I do have a few smokes every now and then (average 3 sticks per week, begged off co-workers) but I'm heaps active at working out in the gym, regularly with cardio.

Yeah, it's fucking hard to quit. I have my personal issues and you have err... that French guy.
