For help on how to follow a comic title,
Wiley, thanks for that breath of fresh air! I actually got a gas(p) out of today’s strip.
Always one idiot trying to turn the thread towards politics. Other than that, today’s comments were pretty funny – kudos!
A re-run of a fake re-run, and it still hasn’t changed.
Thank you for calling, this is Maia…
Un-huh…. Okay… Un-huh…. Oh my… Alright, let’s take a look at this…
Today’s strip pretty much sums up what customer service phone work will do to you. People will say things on the phone they would never say to you in person. Eventually you learn to listen for key words or phrases; everything else starts sounding like Charlie Brown’s teacher. That might sound cynical, but it helps to a) preserve the CSR’s sanity, and b) lets the CSR flip through 12 – 15 account-related screens while the caller is yapping, making the call more efficient (in theory).
Okay, then, you have a great day.
Perhaps what Danae found ‘disturbing’ was that it was Kate who made the devious call, and not her?
Where’s Flo and her superhotflashpower?
@ Richard S. Russell – nice catch!
What should the name of this gal be? I thought of violet-buni (shrinking violet) or bottle-buni (coke-bottle glasses) but neither seem right…
Night-Gaunt, in 1984 he’d more likely have worn parachute pants with all the zippers; “Hammer” style pants were still a few years off.
Finger foods and paper plates!! (Or should that be hoof foods…?)
