Wow, I work a lot when I actually try. I’ve been putting the extra hours, hence my post where I was complaining, as I do. And even though I’ve been working my ass off, I still have another week of extreme hours before I’m free. I enjoy what I do though, so I can’t complain too much. I still have my shift today, tomorrow, and Saturday to get through before I’m done for the week.
Tuesday was like any other Tuesday. Answering the phones for twelve, long, hours with a hint of paperwork to spice the day up. Cab drivers are such funny humans, and honestly so are customers. I get the best complaints, don’t worry because I have examples. The second one is a little long, sorry in advance.
“It’s be there in just a few minutes,” this is me talking.
“A few? Like five or fifteen?” That’s a fair question.
“Less than five, I have someone nearby,” we’re efficient.
“That’s too long, I’m calling someone else.”
Interactions like this leave me making ??? an actual expression.
“I’d like to file a complaint,” calls that start with this are just … fun …
“Of course, what is your complaint?”
“Your driver helped my mother out of your cab,” this caught me off guard. “That breaks the ‘social distancing’ that’s been put in place!”
“So, let me get this straight,” because I was so confused, “you’re upset, because my cab driver helped an older and probably feeble customer out of their cab instead of letting them risk breaking something like a hip getting out of a high up vehicle?”
“Well yes, he got right up next to my mother!”
“And was doing his job? I’m sorry but I don’t quite understand why you’re upset. I understand social distancing, but older customers are at a real risk of hurting themselves. My driver helped a customer out of his cab. I don’t know what you want me to tell you,” what does one even say to that?
“I’m going to sue you guys for this,” angry customer is angry…
Wednesday was definitely more fun. All of the bosses were in the office, and they’re a lot of fun. In my office, we’re a big family of total dorks. Humor and a hint of bullying (like siblings, I promise), this office is fun to be in. I had piles of paperwork that the front office needed help with too. All in all, I was busy all day.
Today, or Thursday depending on when you read this, so far has been quiet. My phone hasn’t been ringing much, the bosses are not here yet, and my paperwork is pretty much done. I’m low key watching League of Legends videos while reminiscing about England. It’s not even noon yet though, so we’ll see how the day goes.
