What’s your favorite/most memorable event so far? :3
So, what do the users on this forum do?
I'm a marine biologist, apparently. Or at least that's my excuse for having a collection of frozen seawater.
What about all of you?
I work at an airport. I fuel airplanes, and stuff.
No I’m not that guy you see loading the bags on planes at the airlines. I mostly deal with private aircraft. (Aka rich people)
Uh, oh! And here's me, that relates a lot more to Jack Nicholson, in that film. You're not gonna get me to take any of those damn pills!
Whelp, you're free to refuse. Unless you're Qawi'd of course. Then its an IM injection for you whether you like it or not.
And Mr. McMurphy was an obnoxious malingerer. We get them all the time because mental hospitals are a much cushier place to serve out a sentence than prison. Sometimes we can document their behaviors and prove they're faking it. Sometimes we can't and we're stuck with em. And also like Mr. McMurphy many of them make the mistake of making plea of not guilty by reason of insanity and then discover once they get here that that means they wont be released until the doctors deem their mental illness to be in remission and that they are no longer a danger to society. Which more often than not means they'll be stuck there longer than if they just served normal prison sentence.
Never take a not guilty by reason of insanity plea people. That's my advice to you all. <;

Seems I'm one of the only young people left willing to take upon this trade
Remember kids: Stay in drugs, don't do school.
Customer service representative in a customer satisfaction focused environment with the secondary call driver being connection speed (only really important for bonuses). The most important thing is that the customers are happy and that's what customer service should be about.
Lol I know your feelWell, my job title says "Marketing Associate", but... without going into too many details, it's in the financial industry and my main job is sorting out the mess my boss inherited from a previous manager.
Should, yes. Unfortunately, the closest I've ever gotten to customer service is call center work a few years back and... I've been repeatedly told I got an exceptionally BAD scenario, but rigid protocols and time limits so tight you basically HAD to ignore protocol to make it (5 minutes if it's about phone lines, 10 minutes if it's about broadband - yeah, telecom industry) have pretty much fatally poisoned any perception I have of working customer service, even without involving phone calls.
Good luck! I have two degrees—Graphic Design and Creative writing and English and guess where the majority of my work experience is? Retail. You know why I have a hard time finding "real" jobs?
Retail goes "why are you here with your education?" and things in my fields go "you don't have enough related experience." Except where I live isn't very...design or writing-centric. :/ Trust me, I have applied to every single one in the entire city. The closest people I can get to bite want me an hour and a half away, or to move to the capitol 2 hours away. If I'm moving two hours away I might as well move closer to my wife's family, where their town is so up and coming you basically shout out the window for a job and you'll get one apparently. Seriously I visited for a weekend and got three offers. Three. Just because I was "related" to a regular customer.
However I've managed to net enough this week with the comms I was able to scrounge I can pay 3 of my bills so far! Granted the last two I have left are about $600 worth but at this rate I should be able to make most of it. I had to quit without a job lined up, paid all my bills for this month, and planned on living off of my wife's savings for a bit. So sometimes, you just have to get lucky I guess. If you ever need to chat, I understand what you're going through.
