    I love Snickers...
    And so do some of my coworkers. We had a pretty good harmony going, too.

    So you ate candybars? Or were unproductive? I don't get it.

    Either way, I think you need a new job.

    And possibly a new hobby.

    We have sometimes a few minutes between calls, or talk while we are skip tracing (hunting dead beat, non-paying losers down). We enjoyed Snickers, and sang the song.

    Yay.

    Transformers, DVDs, and my truck are and will be my hobbies. I just need to find a different friggin' job. Yii-eeee.

    If I can convince someone higher up, I would do it and post it. Unfortunately, we can't have cameras or video cameras on the floor. Doing so would definitely be a career-ending move where I work now.

    On a side thought, for those who love their job, what are you doing for a living?

    I work. Constantly, and tirelessly.

    Writing policy, procedures, contingency plans, the good stuff.

    Sounds like you're a workaholic in an insurance related industry. I don't mind if I can't get a job I don't love, I just want a job like I had for awhile where I could enjoy the day.

    I thought this would just be a video of you gazing at your "truck".

    There's a time for everything, my friend. Good chances are, I'll say it again at some point.

    I thought it was going to be an actual video at work too…


    As "some select few of you" might know, I'm a graphic designer for a company that deals in the adult industry. Yes, I love my job, but I feel the need to move on. More of that, in the near future. Back to you in the studio. hehe…

    Dude, me and my friends were singing that during 7th period today after the test. One of the best commercial melodies of our time.

    Yes, we try to crack each other up, too. Some customers say the damnedest things to try to get out of paying their bill. Hey, if you're legitimately behind that's fine. We try to work with you. But, if your an a-hole as MOST late stage customers are we are LESS likely to be willing to work with you.

    I want out of collections not because I hate the collecting part, or the customers, but because of the additional stress caused by some internal problems such as co-workers and other similar factors. The "bad" customers I can handle by themselves, but add in bad customers, the overlying dark cloud over me because I'm not "top dog," (not the bottom either) and other factors and you can see why I want out. Wow. That was a run on sentence.

    You get those calls because they know you're the "special" one. They all know you're the one who can fix their problems.
