    Real life Ti = Me.

    I had a very hard time adjusting to this job which started in Dec 2012. I dislike taking phone calls, I dislike the call machines. They're really good call machines, probably the best ever made; I just dislike them because they are call machines. I dislike the zillions of rules that I have to follow on the job.

    I do like helping people by solving computer problems, and I have always liked helping people anyway. One of the best jobs I had when I was in my 20s was helping the elderly with chores through the local senior center. It was a low-paying job that I would have done for free if I was rich.

    I have to use the phone, but usually I communicate via email. I have a few vendors who insist on doing everything over the phone. Luckily, since I am essentially "the customer", I really don't have to be as friendly as I would if I were working in sales.

    I did a telemarketing job. I don't know how I made it through training and I quit after 2 weeks on the job. They handed me a bic pen and asked me to sell it to them. My thought was, this is a standard Bic pen. What does it do that other pens cant. I had to have information on this pen before I could sell it. What I actually did was call people to apply for special credit cards. Like a percent of purchase price goes towards the group they are in...the one I remember most is quarter horse association.

    If someone asked me to pitch a bic pen for an interview it would be really hard for me to fight the urge to market it as a great cocaine straw, chew toy, or something to use for emergency tracheotomies.

    That's an excellent question. I guess I have a conviction that things are going to get better. I was also willing to learn how to adapt to the circumstances I found myself in.

    I have to escape the office every once in while or I go crazy. I will take lunches and just drive or go to store or nothing to get out of here and get a break. My only negative on my reviews is that I need to communicate more.

    I escape with the internet, or walks to the smoking area outside.

    I like it when issues come up outside of my normal daily routine, because then I have a reason to use my brain to solve problems--often this allows me to get away from my desk and walk out to the warehouse to play detective. My daily routines don't involve a ton of thinking. I analyze forecasts for parts' usage and demand to determine when to order more, but once you've done that for a while, it becomes very routine and monotonous.
