The Friday Five

1. What do you do for a living?
I sell cell phones for the minions of hell (PCS Station - bunch of Chinese buffoons who were born solely to make my life miserable) who are affiliated with Cingular.

2. What do you like most about your job?
Let's see: It's close to home. I don't have to "work" much because there's a lot of downtime. I'm on the computer all day.

3. What do you like least about your job?
Let's see: A lot of downtime. I'm on the computer all day.

Most of our customers are fucktards. They complain about the stupidest things. "My phone doesn't work." I guess that big ass crack on your screen has nothing to do with it. They complain about their 78-page bill after they go over by a thousand minutes. "I think something's wrong with my bill. Can you do something with it?" Sure, I can drop it on your head and crack your skull open. Then I can play with the sand that comes out of your skull and pretend I'm at the beach. Oh, but the best customers are the ones that come in struttin' like they own the fucking place, drop the phone in front of me like it's a diseased albino baby, and demand to fix their phone because they run a business with that phone and they need to be treated royally because they've been with Cingular for 15 kajabiliion years. Then they leave all huffin' and puffin' and proclaim their hatred for Cingular when I tell them I can't help them 'cause I'm not a fucking technician.

Our so-called "manager" is a selfish bitch that doesn't act like a manager at all. She took all of last week off because her boyfriend (who is also a manager, at a different store) was sick and she had to "take care of him." And the days when she actually comes in to the store, she's gone for hours -- supposedly doing "business stuff." AND SHE GETS PAID MORE THAN ANY OF US.

There's more, but I'll just end it here.

4. When you have a bad day at work it's usually because _____...
See previous question.

5. What other career(s) are you interested in?
Anything in the film industry -- direct, write, produce, mic, lighting guy for a porno, anything.
I would like to work at a videostore, just for a few months.
Same for a gamestore.
