public transit

From a Darwin Awards email I got today:

"After stopping for drinks at an illegal bar, a Zimbabwean bus driver found that the 20 mental patients he was supposed to be transporting from Harare to Bulawayo had escaped. Not wanting to admit his incompetence, the driver went to a nearby bus stop and offered everyone waiting there a free ride. He then delivered the passengers to the mental hospital, telling the staff that the patients were very excitable and prone to bizarre fantasies. The deception wasn't discovered for 3 days."

And that's why I don't ride the bus. Because its illegal, immoral, and dangerous!

Sometimes the phone rings. Sometimes you know whats going to happen. Then you answer it anyway.

There was a call I got from a gentleman who wanted some help with his order. I couldn't find any information in his order that he was asking for. I told him I needed to contact some shipping companies and some other people to get the information he needed.

He was absolutely livid about the entire thing...

    And this is why I don't work at the Desk anymore.

    Seriously, isn't there a point when we can just hang up, refund their money, and tell them to get bent? Because this is abuse however you look at it, and it is NOT part of the job description.

    That would have made me cry, and apparently that's the only way you can get people to feel bad about what they've done. I can have the worst day at school (ie kids put condoms on my door or they get up and walk out of class) but no matter what, it can never be as bad as working at the desk. I hope not everyday is like that for you and that things are going well. I miss you all very much. Take care!!

    PS Who moved to D23?
