|06:22 pm - ha. ha. ha. die.|
O MY FUCKING GOD DIE DIE DIE IN A FIREY PIT YOU JACKASS
is what i should have said today. instead i mumbled and stalked out. you see, loyal readers, i was fired today from my shitass telemarketing job. why? because i did not "hear the fire" in my manager's voice. once again, i'll let IM speak for me:
[05:45:04 PM] king nixon: i am fucking angry
[05:45:30 PM] DIC BUTKUS: HA! About whjat?
[05:45:51 PM] king nixon: the manager at the telemarketing place fired me cuz i didnt hear the fire in his voice
[05:45:59 PM] DIC BUTKUS: Haha, What???
[05:47:18 PM] king nixon: he walks over, tells me i need to put more of my personality into the calls. i say i thought i was, so he shows me. he reads the script all hyper-spazhead-telemarketer style, and asks if i could hear the fire and excitement in his voice. i coudlnt. so he tells me he doesnt like my attitude and to get out of the building
[05:48:34 PM] DIC BUTKUS: HAHAHHAHA
[05:48:35 PM] DIC BUTKUS: Oh man!
[05:48:40 PM] DIC BUTKUS: Dood, file a complaint!
[05:49:11 PM] king nixon: haha! you know, thats not a bad idea
[05:49:14 PM] king nixon: i've got the # for the main office
[05:49:24 PM] king nixon: fuckin arrogant prick, he's goin down
[05:49:55 PM] DIC BUTKUS: Haha, DO IT
it's not even that i was fired that pissed me off, or that it was for no reason. just that he was such an ASS about it. he asks if i could hear his fire and shit, i couldnt, so he immediatley reaches down, logs off my computer, says "i dont like your attitude, get out." and walks away. i'm sittin there for a sec in shock, i ask if he's serious. he says "yeah, get out of the building" wicked curt, and turns away.
np: deftones - root
i did not give him a smart alek response, i honestly answered his question, which apparently isn't what was expected of me. oh well.
i understand bosses have to do mean things like randomly fire people sometimes - and he was probably right to fire me, i didn't like the job and wasn't real good at it (being an asshole to people does not come naturally to me) - but what bothered me was that he was so arrogant and capricious about it. it probably does suck for him, to top out as manager of one branch of a telemarketing firm, but because he screwed up his career doesn't mean i should let him take it out on me
