sagging seriously???

so i remember when i was younger like late elementary school or early middle school there was this whole sagging phenomenon. it was the thing to do at the time, and it was banned at schools. i remember some states even tried to have it outlawed. i never fell into this "fad" i thought it was stupid... so i was on campus earlier today and saw that a bunch of guys at my college are still sagging... WTF? seriously?

have you seen this??

now see this one...

i quit my job today

so i had been unemployed for a while found a job at h&m which i loved,hated the hours and lack of. decided to leave after 5 months ,i felt stuck and didn’t want to be doing retail for the rest of my life… my background is mainly banking & customer service call centers…

so for about a month and a half i looked and looked, and i got a call back from one of the hundreds of places i had applied at. i scheduled an interviewed the position stated i’d be working in an inbound call center and i would be a customer service rep, not my favorite position but hey it’s a job, right?? then i was told that i was hired as long as i passed the training and passed an assessment. i was told that depending on my test score i’d be getting first dibs on the schedule of my choice.
wow! this all sounds too good to be true.

and it was….
so i started on a monday, first thing that i noticed was shady was that they hired 20 people. odd, right??
moving on…
we start training and we’re going on and on about everything except what the company does or what our jobs consist of … hmmm i should have left then.
so our trainer tells us we are a lead generations company.
wtf is lead generations???
so i goggle lead generations … it’s a marketing term…
so i am still unsure of what we really do..
he goes on to say that we are an all inbound call center…
but some of our calls maybe unwanted… what??

so what they do is they use a voice over to call people
and if they are interested you press one and if you are not you press two..
it’s regarding auto warranties…
omfg i’ve gotten these effing calls!!!

you won’t imagine how many people press one just to bitch you out.
i took 400 calls a day, 95% of the calls were unpleasant

so this job was no more than telemarketing. i tried so hard to do it, just because it was a job and i need the $$$… i did it for a total of 60 hours, after my 3rd hour today i went up to my supervisor and told her i was done, filled out some paperwork and left. out of the 20 people i started with only 9 remain.

this is pretty much what i did... i wish i had talked to this guy we could have had some funn ;)

hanging with @postgay

this is not made up as we were driving around my friend calls and asks me to pick him up from jail..
