In My Head There Is A Happy Place...

and when you work in Customer Service, you have to go there, mentally, on a frequent basis. Today, quite frankly, has been one of those days. The kind that suck with a capital uck.

I've had every kind of customer on the phone today. The irate kind, the confused kind, the "way too old to be allowed to use the phone" kind, the "I'm going to ask you a question and then answer it myself, negating the necessity of this phone call" kind, the million question kind, the "I want to talk to the supervisor" kind, the "you sound kind of young" kind, the perverted kind, the "wrong company" kind, the cuss-word-a-second kind. You name it, I've dealt with it today.

Remember the old Calgon commercials...I may have been a small child at the time that they were in fashion, but I want to say: "Calgon! take me away!"

I need a beach, warm weather, an adult beverage, a shoulder rub, and good book...and in my head, that's where I am.

Toasting you with a mental Mai Tai,

I used to work in cust. service too when I was younger. It was a drag. I find I want to get away from technology completely some days now even. And with a little one, just taking a shower is like going on a tropical vacation. Cute blog. Thanks!
