true life: i'm a telemarketer.


this is the most miserable job i've ever had. to start it off; some days i get off at 11. one day at midnight and one day at 3:45.

here's what goes down: you get there. pray you find a computer that actually works. found one? good. log in. pray someone left a phone at your station. no such luck? look around all fucking day for one. plug it in. completely static-y. perfection. take 20 mins to find another one that works. JACKPOT. the computer starts dialing numbers. let the yelling, cursing and "DON'T CALL HERE EVER AGAIN"'s begin. *sigh* just the start of a 7 hour shift.

we can legally call people from 8am to 9pm. and the national do not call list? psh. we're exempt. awesome.

seriously, i cannot wait to find a new job. i've come home and cried because of the way people talk to me. i mean, i know being solicited is annoying but just fucking hang up, there is no need to curse and stuff, ugh. we are PEOPLE too.

*rant over*
