Oh I do like that Mike!! I've just taped a TV programme about the call-centre-operative's side of call-centres.
(haven't watched it yet)

The TPS etc. as Anne says is really useful. But what your company does is fun & you should have more songs-to-switch-to.

I think I am going to throw in En Vogue's "You are Never Gonna Get It." Older white Southerners who complain will be driven to apoplexy.

If you tried that in CT, though, first of all the customers would complain up the chain until they found someone who took them seriously--and our State Atty General usually does. Then the company would be in the local and then national news, then you'd be fired, and you'd be unable to get another job because no one would want to hire a national disgrace, then a new bill would be introduced in the state legislature to restrict what customer service people can say to customers, then there'd be haranguing in the news about the Awful State of Affairs in customer service in general: everybody's so rude, even Americans don't speak good English, etc., etc., Dr. Phil would have a show where he confronts rude customer service people (but giving them equal time to complain about rude customers), then there'd be more news stories and numerous blogs about it, with the usual "People should always be nice", "mean people suck", what about the rude customers then?, and the few "this is all the liberals' fault!" comments, then the fringe element would get involved, appearing on sleazy talk shows and weeping about how traumatized they were by rude customer service people, scarred for life they were, which is why they're filing the multi-million dollar lawsuits that got them on the show in the first place, because there was so much mean-spirited blogging and news stories accusing them of being money-grubbing weenies.

Then eventually, it would all die down, because Paris Hilton or Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan would do something outrageous (again), or Miley Cyrus would turn up pregnant (or lesbian, that's always good for a few days' worth of news), and we'd forget all about that guy with the suspenders in Arizona. ;-)

Did I forget to mention the Watney's Red Barrel? :D

Now I can't stop laughing! Thanks Judy!

Judy, you make me laugh. I can see it now, the book is a million best seller and I have to go live in the Cayman Island and never set foot in America again. Or, I will end up living in the trailer parks on the South Side, spending the rest of my life on welfare. Mike the nastiest, dumbest Tucsonan out there LOL!
As for Doctor Phil...

Ewww the thought of Billy Ray Cyrus as a grandad ain't good!!!!

I can just see ol' Billy Ray attempting to put his grandchild to sleep with, "Don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart..."

I hope he doesn't wear 'those' jeans anymore.....or the boots. Or the haircut.
