I don't know I fan fathom quite a bit, um...oh. oh no. oh nooooo.....Ok, you win snothouse.
Description is a gross understatement. Sweet mother of God.
I don't see why everybody is so upset. They said "Me so solly"!
"This is far from racist. You all need to get a life. Great job venetian mummers."
Oh youtube. :3
Yes, racist idiots. Call center jobs are the jobs we need to get back. That will fix everything; we just need to allow our citizens to embark upon the incredibly enriching and fulfilling job of working at a call center.
I used to work at a call center. I'm desperate for work so I probably will again.
I'm going back to school and I need money. I'm on antidepressants, seeing a therapist and I've gotten rid of my helium tank so I think I'm ready. The only reason having sex for money is my plan B and not my plan A is that I need to lose some weight.
I don't recommend getting a call center job unless you know in advance when you're going to quit. If it doesn't shit you out in a couple of weeks it will hold on to you like a fucking vice.
The hell? What's wrong with a call center job?
Also, Blue, every comment you post is like a sad short story. Don't ever stop.
Madison University, run by the infamous Kimberly McKinney if anyone's interested.
I quit by leading people to the old Miskatonic University website. Lulz.
Okay. I'm sure you've had a customer service job before, right? Some people love those jobs and some people hate them, but everybody has had customers that try their patience.
In call centers the happy customers and the angry customers are sent to different departments. If you're new, you're likely going to deal with angry customers every second of every day. That part of the job really sucks but isn't really the thing that makes it a crappy job.
The real problem with the job is the level of control management has. The tools of the industry mean they get very fine grain reports on every second you're at work. If you were punctual before, now you're going to have to have a talk with your supervisor about you being consistently 15 seconds late from break. Whatcha doing, concentrating on something important for the customer? It's been 11 seconds since you said something, now you're required to talk about the weather! They give you a very specific goal for your average handle time. Not meeting that goal will get you in trouble, meeting that goal will get the goal reduced further. You basically do well until you meet the limits of your natural ability and then you get in trouble. You learn to tailor your performance to whatever things they're trying to crack down on. You make a calendar of what you got in trouble for and when. You are very aware of the specific date that warnings about the quality or handle time roll off of your record. Even the top performers still have two or three warnings about something. (four gets you fired)
In order to work there for any length of time, you learn to strategically fuck up at your job. If someone doesn't do a step right, you make a mental calculation. Will fixing this problem take more time than scheduling a tech? Send the tech. Sometimes you get conflicting information. Your supervisor says do X but the people that evaluate your calls say don't do X. Either way you're going to have a sit down conversation with your supervisor where they have a demeaning conversation where they ask you questions about your personal life and try to convince you that getting fired would have a negative impact on you and your loved ones. You're a plate spinner, you cut corners in whatever category you still have some warnings left in. And then one day, sometime around the day you get vested, you get fired anyway.
I got 45 seconds in. I'll watch the rest at home.
I don't want to explain this to any co-workers.
This is my first NSFW vid without the copious nudity.
I knew from the title it would be the Mummers. God bless my weird, surly little town, sustained by unfocused anger and sports-related bitterness.
my friend once trenchantly called Philadephia "the biggest small town in America"
I'm usually on the side of "Stop looking for something to cry about, whiners" when it comes to arguably racist entertainment but holy shit there's not really any arguing to be had here.
I like how every last one of them is saltines and mayo white. I also like how people who bring up this kind of argument constantly seem to be completely oblivious to the fact that there is a portion of the US population composed of people who are 100% American, born and raised, who aren't white and who don't talk like midwesterners.
I'm offended by the stereotype that people from New Jersey want jobs.

It's almost like a parade from the Retard Bizarro universe from Superman. All you need is people playing with cube basketballs and throwing ice water on themselves in winter.
I miss Philadelphia more every day, the parade of human idiocy is endless
This is another one of those videos that wins for the comments.
I think the use of Gangnam Style is ironically fitting here.
As noted elsewhere, Psy is actually against Korea's posh "Gangnam Style", and his music video is, in fact, a condemnation of ostentatious lifestyles. He's trying to make rich, materialistic dandies look like idiots by doing that goofy horsey dance.
So when he told the newslady that, yeah, Philly was a pretty fancy place, I'm betting that was a diss that went right over her head.

I guess my radar's off? I see friggin' idiots.
As in, it might be too stupid to count as racist.
As a Philadelphian, I think the Mummers, in general, are by far the most embarrassing aspect of the city. This certainly does not help.
