Customer: "When are you going to come fix my TV? The channels haven't been working right for three days!"
Zin: "I'm sorry about that, it doesn't usually take so long to get a technian. I'll look into it immediately. When did you first report the problem?"
Customer: "Report? Do I have to report it? You should just know!"

I do not get paid enough for this.

Dear US 'Gentleman'

No, I can't answer any questions about this company's head office in Russia. No, I don't speak Russian. Yes, it is a real company but I still can't tell you anything about the operations in Russia. Why? Because I'm a lowly switchboard operator, that's why. I know it's morning in the States right now, but here in Sweden, I'm just getting ready to pack up my things and go home, and anyone who could have helped you already left half an hour ago. I can take a message and ask them to call you back, but that's really all I can do for you this late in the day.

Aaaaaand now you're hitting on me, how wonderful. (For your information, Mr 'All-Swedish-Girls-Are-So-Beautiful'. Blonde, tall, long-legged and buxom? I pretty much only fit the 'buxom' part.) Oh, you want to come and visit me when you go to Sweden? Let me know when you'll be here so I'll know when to hide.

No love,

1. I'm alive. Sorry for dropping out of internet existence. In short - my joints hate me, and we've had a wasp invasion bad enough that you can expect a Deluxe edition of Stupid Customer of the Day soon.

1,25. So, so, so sorry for missing all those birthdays and not bearing gifts. Happy belated birthday wishes to [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison, [livejournal.com profile] anyanka_eg and [livejournal.com profile] winter_elf! I'll try to make it up to you.

1,5. I have a wrist brace and a bottle of anti-inflammatories and I'm not really supposed to do any typing for a while (yeah, good luck with that...) so I'm probably going to be verrrrry slow to respond to things. Please bear with me for a little bit.

2. Fandom.... Leverage: Could Hardison and Parker be any cuter? White Collar: Yay for Diana! Psych: Still awesome. Also, I went to see the A-team movie which was entertaining enough but also made me want to check out the tv-show. Not disappointed :) I think I have a new love.

* We might be the only people in Sweden who are working today. During the past two hours, I have answered 19 calls. An average call is forty seconds. Do the math. Any good ideas for how to keep myself entertained until five o'clock?

* Spoil me for the Supernatural finale and be instantly defriended. I have never been more serious.

* I got an AO3 account and am in the process of backing up my stories. How much energy I will have to maintain it remains to be seen. I like the tagging system!

* For a lovely smutty character study of Sam Hanna and G Callen from NCIS:Los Angeles, allow me to recommend A Greater Compliment by [livejournal.com profile] anyanka_eg.

1. Friday afternoon conversation at work:

Zin: Oh, look! I want bedsheets with ponies.
K: No, you want bedsheets with zombies.
Zin: There are bedsheets with zombies? Give me!

My co-workers know me so well...

2. Mum's birthday tomorrow. She wished for a party, which means she'll get a party. I will do my best not to end up in the kitchen as usual. Whee!

3. Went to see Sherlock Holmes again this evening. Spoilers behind the cut. )

I don't remember the last time a Friday made me so happy. This week has been ridiculously slow. I'm planning to take it easy tonight, maybe buy a bottle of wine and cook something tasty. Does anyone know what to do with a chicken breast that isn't too complicated?

To make things a little merrier, I just had this conversation. It certainly cheered me up!

Me: Welcome to (company), this is Zinnith speaking.

Customer: Hello? Emma? Who am I speaking to?

Me: You've reached (company), how can I help you?

Customer: Oh, I must have the wrong number. I was calling a little old lady.

Me: (laughing) Heh, well, I'm not that old quite yet.

Customer: Don't worry, I'm sure you'll become a great little old lady!

I've decided to take it as a compliment! Though I suspect I'll probably become a crazy old cat lady instead.
