I’ve Been Fired!

After being on suspension for about 6 weeks, they fired me yesterday. I’m no longer bound by their contract so I’ll say what I damn well please now. They said I was rude to a customer and it was gross misconduct. I wasn’t rude at any point of the call. I didn’t swear and IContinue reading “I’ve Been Fired!”

Seeing The Doctor

I had cause to make an appointment to see the doctor this past week. Sounds easy doesn’t it? The receptionist offered me a few appoints between 2pm and 4.30pm next week. Politely I declined and explained that I work full time and could they fit me in after 5pm. ‘We close at 5pm.’ I wasContinue reading “Seeing The Doctor”

POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

The British people have spoken! We have shown the country that we have more power than the idiots in the big buildings. This is as important as the vote to leave. We have said: ‘OUR MONEY IS FOR US’ And everybody needs to take note. It’s interesting to see the way various areas have voted.Continue reading “POWER TO THE PEOPLE!”

Enjoying The Sun

I’ve been off work for the last two weeks and have enjoyed the sunshine. Looks like summer has finally arrived in the UK. About time too. We’ve had some lovely weather during the last couple of weeks. I’ve sat in the garden working on the laptop and getting a tan. My daughter, who works fromContinue reading “Enjoying The Sun”

We’re Closed!

Unfortunately I had to work this Saturday. Right at the end of my shift I had a customer ringing to take out a policy that I don’t deal with. I’m not authorised to set it up so would have been in serious trouble if I had done so. However, as I explained to the customer,Continue reading “We’re Closed!”

Do You Know Your Address?

One of the main things we have problems with at work is customers who don’t know their address. You may think I’m joking but sadly I’m not. We get a lot of ‘errmm…’ when we ask for the address. We also get ‘the postcode is w2’. Sometimes we get the whole postcode but still haveContinue reading “Do You Know Your Address?”

Discrimination

My company has now decided to have a live stream of director interviews. It’s a great idea. Gives us an idea of what is going on with the company. However, those of us in the call centre have no sound on our computers. The company seems to think that we would be stupid and useContinue reading “Discrimination”

Red Meat Causes Cancer?

I saw on the TV this morning that ‘they’, whoever ‘they’ are, have now said that red meat can cause cancer. Well, this is not actually news. It’s been known for sometime. If you haven’t seen it watch the video of ‘Forks Over Knives’ (forksoverknives.com). It details research done showing the effects of an animalContinue reading “Red Meat Causes Cancer?”
