"Stupid" should hurt its source, not its destination.
Stupid fucking people.

So this bitch leaves me a voicemail in an accusatory mommy-caught-you-with-your-hand-in-the-cookie-jar voice, telling me that I didn't finish my job for her. I'm supposed to get her pricing on 2 more quantities of widget. The 2 quantities of widget for which she wants pricing are below the minimum purchase. We have to buy a certain amount of material, so you have to buy a certain number of widgets asshole. That's life. If you don't like it...well, I couldn't possibly care less, nutmunch.

What really grabbed my short curlies and yanked was that I clearly explained this on the pricing that I returned to her. Fucking clear as day. It couldn't be any clearer if the archangel gabriel descended from heaven, smacked her thick skull with his trumpet, and pointed to the text on the page that said "minimum purchase." It could not be more clearer if the ink jumped up off the page and gave her a big fat sticky mushroom bruise between the eyes with it's inky black cock. MINIMUM PURCHASE. RIGHT THERE. IN FRONT OF YOU. AAAARRRRHHHHGGGGG!!!

And you know what? It's not just her. It's fucking everybody. It's like a global conspiracy of stupid. Like the order of the Masons, but trepanned. The very next call i get is from this guy who wants pricing. He starts describing the label to me. We have hundreds of customers. Tens of thousands of different widgets we produce daily. He's describing the label to me like I'm Drool-O, the autistic customer service rep. "Yeah. 40223. Definitely. Definitely 40223. Uh oh, gotta watch wapner..." No, asshole. Numbers. I need numbers. You can't stuff meaningless information into my ear, twist my nipples, and watch me magically produce ticker-tape from my ass with the data you need. No. It does not work that way. So I convey this to einstein in a much nicer way than I wanted to. What do I hear for the next 15 minutes?

*rustle* *shuffle* "..uh.." *shuffle* *shuffle* *scrape* "...that, maybe..." *rustle* *ruslte* *thunk* *scrape* *shuffle*.

I wanted to crawl through the phone and ram his fucking file cabinet up his ass sideways. What kind of dimwit cretin shitball knob-suck calls someone and then makes THEM wait while they sift through volumes of crap?


I need to cool off...

    someone got pissy at you over the phone, and they didn't pay close attention to the minimum purchase amount, and someone couldn't give good decriptions of some label.

    Wow. That's really, really terrible. I feel realy bad for you. I'm sorry, man, hope life treats you better next time.

    That post was annoying, at best, and your problem is annoying, at worst.

    I fail to see the GFD....

      At the time, I was so frothing hopped-up-on-adrenaline hulk-smash mad that I ommited the very important fact that it's a chronic problem. That day was just the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back.

      Omitting that little detail pretty much turns me into a whiny little bitch.

        There is a major problem with GFD. It's this whole "my pain is worse than yours" thing. People leaping onto the smaller issue GFDs and pronouncing them less valid. It's bullshit.

        You have a pretty valid GFD there and used the site for what it was for, to get the shit off your chest and let complete strangers give you their opinion. Yeah, it may not have been the end of the world but it bothered you enough to get you emotional and utter the infamous phrase "god fucking damnit". And that's the point. Yeah, it's a harsh environment here, but that's why you need to have some balls to paste something.

        As for the GFD itself, there isn't much you can do about stupid coworkers. I mean, you can always try to pick the slack up yourself, but that will eventually drive you insane. Since it's a chronic problem you might want to speak to a supervisor if you think something can be done ie. a replacement with more brains. If not, you could always make the work environment a living hell and wait for the people to drop like flies. That's always fun. Or just keep a big bottle of excedrin at your desk.

    yeah, i agree with Bean, i thought this place was to be used for ranting on about anything you were pissed off about ... not a competition board. if it is, ive lost already.

    Anywho back to the widget business, the minimum purchase part ... cant you make the print bigger and underline it a few times?? in the cut throat world of modern day business, people dont always have enough time to read small print.

    nice story though, and i agree with being pissed off about being made to wait while he looked through the filing cabinet ... that sucks so bad. humm an annoying tune to yourself while you wait ... takes the edge off it.

    Check out this paraphrased exchange I had this weekend:

    Genius: Changes from yesterday are not being applied as of this morning. Can you take a look?

    My reply: You need to be more specific with things like this. What changes?

    Genius: I made modifications yesterday and when I look for my modifications I don't see them. Does this help?

    because you are a dog-fucking transvestite...
    and because there was no option for negative infinite.


    Note: I also like going back to old posts by authors that insult me and making fun of them so I can feel better about myself. Gee, that's pathetic.
