I’ve always dreamed of making a difference in my life. I feel working in a call center I’m really making that dream come true. I mean I must help hundreds of people a day. I mean yeah, most of their problems are related to the poor products we design and sell, but without me how would these people get by?
Take for example that elderly woman I helped earlier with her new wifi connected crock pot. Sure she just wanted to make a nice beef stew for her and her husband. And when she bought the new kitchen appliance, she had no idea she was paying twice as much for wifi capabilities she doesn’t understand just so our corporate masters can spy on her slow cooking activities. So what if I even scammed her into buying one of new over priced wifi routers she also doesn’t know how to use. I sure felt good after I got her all set up to maybe, sometime later in the week, after she fights with her new wireless router issues, sit down with her husband and enjoy some comforting slow cooking.
I mean right I did make a difference right? Right?
This morning I decided to stop and get my own coffee. Just imagine the horror I suffered when I found myself standing in line waiting. I mean don’t these fucking baristas have any idea how valuable my time is? I get paid more per hour than they get in an entire month ungrateful peasants.
And don’t get me started on the filthy customers that I was forced to stand in line with. I mean couldn’t these people tell how important I was? Not a single one bothered to let me go first. I am very important and my needs come first!
No one would dare force me to wait in line for a coffee at work. They understand how very very important I am. Where would the company be without me? I mean I didn’t found it or anything. And really the majority of the company’s growth and success was prior to me taking office as CEO, but never mind that. Now that I’m here they depend on my leadership.
I’m not sure what came over me this morning thinking I should mingle with people of such lack of respect and low earnings, but I vow to avoid such interactions going forward.
