Pished as hell

There's no chance he's not an alchy...

I'm in work on Good Friday, and we have 140 plus customers waiting to speak to us and give us abuse, after alot of the staff were given time off for today too. I'm not happy.

Now I'm in work on Easter Monday, and there's still calls in the queue, but no-where near as much. Had a sambooka Sunday last night thanks to the missus buying me loads. I also lost the raffle in there too. Again. Yey.

Random Link Of The Bank Holiday

This Week's B3TA Competition - Absolute classic compo this week; turn a classic childrens program into degraded filth. Ya can't do better than that for class :D My only quibble is that there's not enough Chuckle Brothers going on in there for my liking lol, so I made one;

The Chuckle Brothers ratings were never the same after their American Tour with the NWA.

Am still selling loads of stuff on eBay, but the Easter hols have knackered up when I can post the stuff out, which is annoying as I've got at least 5 items to post tomorrow afternoon. Should be fun.

Another Link For The Hell Of It

Avoid The Stomping - try to survive as long as possible as a bird, while an elephant randomly tries to stamp on you. Absolutely pointless fun.

The Solar Death Ray - Absolute physics genius, with an actual working weapon :D

140 calls in the queue and people being sent home is the call centre equivalent of closing a till in tescos when the '10 items or more' queue is snaking down the aisles. Still at least they have got rid of the red, amber and green light system so we are all really motivated!!

True....there's just a light and a number nowadays. Still crap though :D

I think 289 is the highest number I ever saw. Although it was probably more during the blaster virus but they split the queue into two the clever clog managers.

The highest I ever saw was 420, and I just laughed at the people who were complaining to me about the amount of time it took for them to speak to us. No offence, but it's not my fault that there are 420 waiting, and only 30 people on the phones stressing right out. It's not my fault that my management decided to give most of the staff the day off beforehand in a complete rota cockup. And it's definately not my fault that I've gotta listen to you winging for 10 fecking minutes about waiting for ages adding to the fecking call length and making others wait even fecking longer, you sad fecking tosser who can't browse porn in Chiswick.

But I don't let it get to me, oh no :D
