*snicker* Can you tell I'm an only child?
But, anyway. I have the Bladerunners orientation today (where I find out if I make it into the program) and the CPR-C AED on Saturday. Updates to follow.
*sarcastic applause* You go, T-Mobile. Well played all around.
P.S. Getting paid to do nothing is not actually as appealing as it sounds.
Scratch that. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy, never mind my flist.
I am suddenly very much in sympathy with anyone who's ever threatened to bomb a call center.
*please please please*
No such luck so far.
...and some random things that make me
less homicidal happy.
I hate FlexPay! I hate it SO SO MUCH!!!! I swear the marketing meeting went like this:
Robert Dotson (CEO, T-Mobile USA): Let's make it so customers who have bad credit or don't want a contract can still have nationwide rate plans and cheap phones.
Marketing Team: Great idea! Quality work, Bobby! Um...how do we do that?
RD: We bill them for the service a month in advance, instead of them having to pay a deposit. And they can have another account for overages that they can top up with prepaid cards, so that they can't rack up overage that they don't have the money for.
MT: Awesome! Let's get it in a test market right away!
RD: No, let's not bother. We'll just test it on a national level without retraining our reps, put all kinds of restrictions in the fine print, and add some nonnegotiable additional fees that are impossible to justify to the customer.
MT: WTF? O-kayyyyy...why?
RD: To see if we can make a rep's head explode!
RD: It''ll be funny!
This is why Robert Dotson sucks.
In other news, I have found a site that I love. You all totally have to check out the most awesomesauce HTML tutorial EVER!
See that? See the way that pretty link opened in a seperate window and everything? *is so proud of herself* I totally understand how it works now and I love, LOVE this site! I want to marry it and have its' flawlessly formatted children.
Ok, that might be going a little far.
At first I was all, WTF? A monkey could do this job. Do you seriously think I forgot everything I learned over the past 2 years in 3 months? It was kind of insulting. But then I thought about it. I decided if they want to pay me to sit in a classroom for 2 weeks and 'learn' stuff I alredy know, I'm cool with that. And then if they want to put me in Production Academy for another 2 weeks where I can be in the 'baby queue' that only gets easy calls, and have extra supervisor bitchez to answer my questions and fetch me things (they're not actually there to fetch me things, but that doesn't stop me from sending them out for Starbucks), I'm cool with that too. It's a ridiculous waste of money, but hey-it's their money.
Well, y'know, until they give it to me.
