Telling an automated operator to "suck it and give me a real operator," will only result in it responding, "I'm sorry I didn't understand your request. Can you say it again?"

And pumpkin pieces get good distance if one shoots out from cutting board while cutting.

I feel your pain, but multiply that by having to deal with them using an accent different to one they're programmed to expect... (There have been a few which I have been forced to talk to using my really bad attempt at a Texas accent)

Well we've been a good few hours drinking
So I'm going to say what everyone's thinking
If we're stuck on this ship and it's sinking
Then we might as well have a parade

I'd have to agree with that. :thumbsup: :D

On a side note, today I learned that 5 vaccinations at one time won't make my 1 year old completely bonkers.... He actually tolerated it MUCH better than I expected.

that's why instead of having only one other option (1 for spanish) there should be more:
2 boston
3 brooklyn
4 cajun
5 redneck
6 jive

You know a lot of guys seem to have that problem... the key is to make up for it in other ways. :frog:

I feel for you Greg. Working at a job you hate is bad for your health and well-being.

Thanks Rich!

I have to get more serious about trying to find something else. If only I wasn't completely wrecked when I leave this place that might be a bit easier to manage.

Been there. :( Best of luck to you... that's one of the worst situations a person can ever be in. Hopefully you will be able to find another job soon....


Hand sanitizer doesn't stain fabric. And thankfully so, considering I accidentally squirted a hell of a snail trail down my leg this morning.
