#5231: 100 calls an hour!

Mrs. Fungus is sifting resumes to find people worth interviewing. One applicant claimed he works in a call center now and takes 100 calls per hour. When pressed, he said, "Maybe two hours."

I can't take 100 calls in two days. So, yeah, I'm calling "shenanigans" on this one. And so is she.

Plus side: that's better than the lady who said one of her hobbies is putting on makeup. This apparently warranted a bullet point.

I'm going to hit a bunch of links and then call it good, because today was one of those life-sucking days where all I really wanted to do was to tell everyone who called, "You're an idiot. Shut up and hang up."

The real problem was the second call I took today. Guy just wanted to move to the 18gb data tier. Should be a 3-minute job, all told.

I was on the phone for FORTY FUCKIN' MINUTES.

Here's the thing: one of the phones on his account was, for some reason, incompatible with the plan, so I had to do what the previous reps did: remove the phone, then add it back in. Took me a good ten minutes to figure out how to do that one; and then, when I was done?

Should be a matter of adding the IMEI and SIM card numbers back in the fields I just fucking copied them from. But of course, when I tried to put the numbers back in, the system told me the device ID and ICCID were incompatible.

Forty fuckin' minutes...and I had to hand it off to Tech. *sigh*

No, my day sucked, thanks.

8 reasons #NeverTrump failed.

The logical end of titty bars. Appeals court ruled unanimously that titty bars must hire men who identify as women. Guess which circuit court of appeals so ruled. (Hint: the same one that rules hard left every time.)

Fred!
If people want to demonstrate against anything at all, fine. If they detest any politician at all, fine. If they are vulgar subliterate rabble, let them be vulgar subliterate rabble where I am not. But when they run wild over and over and shut down politics, they need to be stopped, right now, with nightsticks and dogs and long jail sentences.
THIS.

CLosest I can come is "Darth Vader, without his helmet, in Ray-Bans." And then I laugh my ass off. (Mrs. Fungus, upon seeing this, asked, "What kind of day is this? These are the people who will be taking care of us when we're old! We're doomed!")

EBT cards not working? Incompetence, or no money? No one in the press is asking.

Repair your zanzithophone! I did!

Resurrecting an Atari ST.

I laughed at something other than the bit in the middle. I laughed at the upper left corner:
Why potatoes get soft when you boil them but eggs get hard? IS EGG REVERSE POTATO?? Please tell me I can't stop crying.
I laughed, and laughed more.

I needed a laugh. Thanks, Bluesun.
