I call tech support just to harass them.

operator: What version of windows do you have.
Me: Casement windows.
operator: I`m not familiar with that.
Me: Casement windows are hinged on the side and swing out like a door, to the right or left, in a swinging motion.
Operator: I meant operating system.

I worked a teletech, i will always remember a guy that was having issues with his internet explorer, couldnt open his mail he kept saying, and that he had just won a price over the internet... I told him to close that window, and he asked me whether he should leave the curtains open or closed. One week later i just had to quit

Tech support is awful. Many of you pointed out the reasons why already. I worked for one providing tech support for Comcast. People would call because the tech who came to install their internet sh*t in their attic. You want to hear someone yell, talk to someone who had a stranger sh*t between the rafters in their attic and who now blames you. call centers blacken your soul. This guy is a hero of everyone who has worked in a call center.

And saying "you don`t know what its like" is an apt statement because there is no way you can explain what working in a call center is like to anyone who has never had the misfortune. No words can describe how the darkness takes hold ;)

Some people. I actually liked this aspect of working in a tech support call center... that and patiently explaining to lawyers with features questions that all of our time is worth exactly the same amount when we are out of our depth.

@ evil eye: "working class life"... are you kidding?! I worked for a call center my senior year of high school. It was filled with people from the oh-so-convenient local halfway house. No, call center jobs are more akin to spending 8hrs a day semi-conscious being raped with a pineapple. Not so fun. Not so necessary.

`Don`t use "you don`t know what it is like" as a excuse, it makes you sound like 12 year old.`

But dude, you don`t know what it`s like making `you don`t know what it`s like` excuses. ;D :P

For everyone who sais others don`t know what it is like... I have worked in call centers, shops, resturants, offices and clubs. None of them I liked and none of them wasn`t filled with idiots who made me what to strangle them on the spot. That`s working class life, deal with it.

Don`t use "you don`t know what it is like" as a excuse, it makes you sound like 12 year old.

Lostinkorea...you have no idea what the job is like. Try taking call after call after call (seriously, you hung up with one person, and you had to hit ready, only to be hammered by another call) for 10 hours a day of people screaming at you because their printer doesn`t work anymore, or that they can`t hit one specific website on the internet, or when a technician came over, he touched their jar of mayonnaise.
I worked through the September 11th attacks. The WTC had two central offices in it. The attacks took out thousands of phone lines. Techs were scrambling to get service back on for those people. Some jackass bitched that he didn`t have internet access and "not to give the World Trade Centre attacks as an excuse."
TSAs thought they had it tough, but the Resolution Group was the TSA dumping ground. If they couldn`t handle a call, they gave it to us. 90% of the time that meant "irate caller".
I`d like to see how you`d fair with dealing with screami

Bwahahahah! I used to work for TeleTech doing the DSL technical support that "Tom" did (I was a Resolution Group Agent), but I know his pain. I left about a year before "Tom" left...I was a little kinder in my exit interview, though.

I hate Verizon. We hosted hospice for my dying brother-in-law. We requested the addition of a line in the bedroom he was staying at. They promised to have it done 2 days later. That was a month ago and not only have they never come but he died 3 days later. I would HATE to die without watching TV. What does that say about my priorities?

OMG I would be laughing if I hadn`t had a woman come into work this morning wanting to learn about Spreadsheets. I showed her the courses we had coming up on Excel and she said "What`s the point in that, my spreadsheet is Vista." She refused to believe that Vista was an operating system, or that she needed any other program on her computer except Vista. Sigh.

It must have been a business support center. If it was a home user support center, the tech`s name would have been Gurprinder or Parjeet.

Here`s the tech support calls section for Computer Stupidities:

They`re not checked, but I have no trouble believing they`re all true.

I once phoned my old ISP, some years ago, and had the good luck to get through to someone who had relevant expertise. Presumably I caught them in the brief period before they either got moved to a higher level of tech support or quit because they got a better job, like bailing out the Atlantic ocean with a teaspoon.

The way I asked the question (the method given in the relevant helpfile for disabling the automatic filling in of the login password wasn`t working) obviously led him to think I had some knowledge. I swear he sounded hopeful when he asked me what operating system I was running. Probably hopeful that the answer wouldn`t be "Dell", dumbfounded silence or abuse.

Angilion - lol, that is about right.

I did Tech Support for Polaroid electronics. So many people don`t know how to put a "tape" in the DVD player... but the tech support was better than Cell Phone Insurance (in the same building as the tech support. I did both)

"I get that customer service, is like sucky as a job, but really? is there a need to be that negative? I would love a desk job, where all I do is answer questions via the phone. I mean I get that sometimes, a person just need to check their power supply, but some of the simple stuff is difficult to figure out of your own, hence that job."

I would rather have a job catching elephant dung in a sack as the elephant takes a dump than work in a call centre as first line tech support. It really is that bad. Seriously. It is very far removed from a cozy desk job answering questions with the occasional customer who needs things explained in more detail.

Checking a power supply...oh my, that isn`t the half of it. A customer who could check their power supply would be unusually knowledgable.

Try explaining algebra to a toddler while someone shouts at you for not succeeding. That would be closer. It`s frustrating enough to make you cry.

Also, people who are questioning him, you have NO idea what call center work is like. Seriously. I`m laughing my ass off at the rest of this interview because I completely understand.

When I was asking in my exit interview if there was anything they could do to convince me to stay, my answer was "Threaten me with a gun and chain my to the desk."

I also called out my last day with the excuse of Dragon Attack. A dragon was attacking the castle. They all thought it was hilarious, because those places don`t give a poo about you or why you are or aren`t there. They just dock you for being absent.

OH MY GOD I KNOW THIS FEELING ALL TO WELL.

Call centers are like the 9th circle of hell. Are there that many? I don`t know, but call centers are it.

When you call customer support, just remember that the person on the other end hates his/her job, hates his/her life, and most of all hates YOU.

Don`t you have to pay huge amounts in fees for uni in America? Thousands and thousands of dollars I thought.
Maybe his parents couldn`t afford for him to go. Is that his fault?

I can understand where this guy is coming from, but, really, it`s his own fault for not going to college and getting a degree. That`s what most degree-less jobs are. Dealing with idiots. If he IS working for a degree, well, I hope he isn`t majoring in social services.

this guy is pathetic. he got a job via a friend, an easy decent paying job and after not even a month quits because he received to many dumb questions. guess what, THATS customer service. you get 1 in 1000 customers who actually know what they`re talking about, the other 999 are ignorant to the technology - hence them calling.

whats moreso, he didn`t submit a 2 weeks notice, he obviously came in the next day (or didn`t come in) and quit hence "yesterday" was last day of "work". way to make your friend look like a jackass.

Just an egotistical nerd who thinks he`s important and/or special. He should be happy when he gets the ignorant people on the line because you can basically talk crap the entire call and they buy it.

So he quit because he got alot of easy questions to answer? As a fellow customer service worker... I must say to try handling it face to face while the dumb person is drunk, possibly violent and thinks you can clearly hear him over the loud music which is slowly making you deaf.

Both partys are dumb to me. The customer for general stupidity and the support working thinking that there won`t be alot of stupid callers and quiting because of in it a manner that will make less people want him after.

Though never having worked as a techie, from the quotes I`ve seen from call centers, I`d say I sympathise with the guy. Also, with this note, he has safely ended all form of job offers from Verizon and Teletech. ^^

I worked for Tech support for cingular/at&t.. when you ask someone what kind of phone they have and they answer "I got the Sony Excursion" or tell you that they got one of those "Blue Print Ear plugs" or call cussing because their phone is broken and they have only had it for 2 days and it wont even light up... then you have to explain how to turn the phone on just to find out that the battery needs charging.... I don`t think it`s the representative, it`s the general public. I relate to this guy`s exit letter too well.
