Call Center Face

I stumbled onto this picture online and I thought it was perfect in that it is exactly the same face I make half of the time I am on the phone with the public. It covers all the important thoughts:

*Why on Earth am I still working here?
*Why are you chewing in my ear?
*You're slurring/mumbling/screaming and I can't understand you.
*How can I hate someone I've never met this much?
*Seriously..why the hell am I still working here?

I've made this face at least a dozen times today. In the following examples read the lines and then immediately scroll up and look at the face. It's like watching me in real-time.

"Good Morning, Place You Just Called how can I help you?"
"Is this the Place I Just Called?"

"Can I speak to Jennifer?"
"We have 51 Jennifers on staff, do you know which one you need?"
"Her desk is close to the door...a door."

"I need Johnny"
"Do you know which department Johnny works for?"
"Oh sorry I misunderstood, is it Joanne in Finance?"
"joining......Zoning? Do you need Zoning?"
"yeah yeah...Johnny"

At times I like my job, I honestly do, as most people are generally good, but I've been doing public service for 10 years and I'm afraid if I do it any longer my face may freeze just like his...except a little chunkier...with glasses...and a mouthful of Corn Twists. God I love corn twists.

I clicked on your blog out of curiousity, and I just want you to know it's absolutely hilarious. Reading your blog just made my day. No, seriously. I was having a shitty day.

And that is not even half of the stupidness we get at the Information Desk! Preach on Jaime!
