Want to text me about it?
What’s on your mind?
I’ll fucking listen.
I’ll give you my god damn phone number if you want to text or call me.
You’re publicly asking for attention by posting your self harm. Saying that nobody cares. Nobody wants to listen.
Well, god damn it, I WANT TO LISTEN.
SO TALK TO ME.
So I’ve worked technical support jobs for the past couple of years. And they’ve given me more pet peeves than I ever thought would have been possible. I figured, hey, I like lists. Let’s make a list of my pet peeves.
Before tech support jobs:
1) People who leave their carts in the middle of the aisle at WalMart
2) People who don’t get in the turn lane to turn, and instead slow down in the main driving lane inconveniencing the drivers behind them
3) People who take up more than one parking spot.
4) People who can’t spell. Know the difference between there/their/they’re.
5) When I call a business phone number and the first thing I hear is in Spanish
6) Shoelaces that don’t stay tied. Fuck you Puma shoelaces.
7) Girl drama. I am a girl and I know how this shit works.
8) Broken zippers.
9) Windows and it’s nonsensical errors.
10) Gang$t@ GRAMM3R. Thug lyfe.
After I started my jobs in technical support, my pet peeves have changed drastically.
1) IP address range blocks that affect traffic irrelevant to the nature of the block.
2) Domain Registry of America’s fake bills.
3) Phishing scams.
4) Cheapass customers who want to save money by signing up for a product with a company in a different country that doesn’t even speak the same language. If you don’t know english, don’t host with an english host and then harass their tech support.
5) Customers who don’t know the difference between their website host and their internet service provider.
6) Customers who want compensation for money they’re not entitled to.
8) Customers who interrupt me to say “Listen -” tone down the attitude before I nuke your account.
9) Customers who threaten lawsuits because we’re not their bitch and we won’t bend over because they complain. You’re the one who hosted copyrighted videos and you’re putting us legally at risk, so no we won’t compensate you for downtime because we deactivated your account at the request of a national TV network.
10) People who are too lazy to follow instructions and learn something helpful about the shit they’re paying for. Learn how to fix it yourself instead of insisting on remaining useless, so if (and when) it breaks again, you can look smart and fix it yourself.
