    Default A Call Centre Tribute

    Hey hey, I'm just out of uni so playing the waiting game and got work in a call centre to get some cash in. Inbound for a big corporation, absolute shite.


    Who all here has had the joy of working in the modern day sweat shops we call call centres? If so share you're funny stories with us.

    I remember insuring a 40 year old central heating system with subsequently blew up costing the poor lad thousands, the p45 was in the post after that!

    i used to work in one. we used to use an internal message thing like msn to send words to each other to drop into the convo. we had an old woman with us who was rubbish and would piss herself laughing all the time causing most customers to put the phone down

    i once had to tell a company that a whole wagon full of their tv's had been stolen and that they were covered for a maximum of 100 per consignment, every single last tv happened to be part of 1 big freight consignment. that was a fun call to make

    I did it many years ago. Customer service for a hardware maintenance company. Taking calls about broken printers etc. Boring as fuck but was some fit birds in the office I got to bang. Also banged a girl from City Link couriers I met over the phone there. .

    Sorry. I didn't realise you monitored my work habits and sexual conquests when I was 19.

    Did you have nothing better to do?

    You must have a very boring life.

    yeah I've served my time, selling monitored alarm systems, the company was investigated by watchdog, they were a pack of cunts to be fair!
    I worked with a guy who thought it was the best job in the world because he could bring his playstation to work, I did have the odd go on Tenchu though!, you have to dont you!
