I don't have a manager.

I don't have a manager.

I used to work for a particularly large ISP doing tech support. One day the guy working next to me was dealing with a particularly rude business customer. The business customers were usually treated like kings but this guy was having a particularly hard time even getting a word in. Eventually he put up his hand to motion the supervisor come talk to the customer.

Right then the owner of the company happened to be walking by with another one of the execs. I've met the guy a few times at the company social events and he is a really down to earth employee friendly boss. He asked what the issue was with his customer and after it was explained he took the headset and picked up the line.

After listening for about 4-5 minutes he said very flatly "That's never going to happen, especially not when you have an attitude like a 13 year old girl." Again listening for a minutes before he said "I don't have a manager. I own this company and I don't have to listen to this s..t from an a..hole like you and neither do my employees. I'm terminating your account with us."

He hung up and I watched him disable this guys account and add a note to the file. "Customer is an a..hole. Do not reinstate account - Boss". Then he just handed back the headset and carried on about his day.

edit: since so many people have asked the issue the guy was going nuts about was something to do with a delay in testing for a fault on his line; something that is done by the phone company and not by the ISP. We literally have nothing to do with it other than submitting the request for testing to them.

Good boss

Tech support must suck, but it probably sucks a bit less with a boss like that.

Deal with troublesome customers

LIKE A BAWS

Think it depends where you work and the type of industry because I work in Tech support and it's the most enjoyable job I've ever had thus far.

I work in technical support for one of the largest manufacturers of alarm systems in Africa and our policy states that we do not engage with End users (That's for our distributors to worry about)

Only certified Alarm Installers can contact us and in the 6+ Months I've been in my current position I've only ever had to deal with 3ish ass holes, Most of the people who call are either friendly or just straight to the point but very rarely are they rude.

Någon verkar ha vaknat på fel sida av sin syster imorse.

Tror jag blev lite dum i huvudet av att läsa det där..

När man själv tycker att ost på sprayburk är acceptabelt för mänsklig konsumption har man ingen rätt att klaga på andra kulturers matlagning.

Kan vara jobbigt när ens syster även är ens mamma...

Marvel-ous.

Health factors aside, this has to taste like absolute shit.

edit: my top comment of all time, is about raw chicken that may be gross, but also may be not gross and totally acceptable to eat, if prepared by specific Japanese chefs. So there's that.

The woman who posted this particular status was just trolling, but the food in the picture is something that someone actually ordered at a restaurant in japan

The texture would definitely be off.

I accidentally made some chicken schnitzel's raw before, was making burgers and had them in the oven on way to high for 40+mins. Looks good enough on the outside, I was hungry, single bite in the burger made /sub/instantregret cry

Employers, pick a random resume from the applicant pile and throw it away. You don't want to hire unlucky people.

Because the third time's the charm, do this twice and then hire the third resume you pick randomly to maximize your hiring success.

You should also throw away the resumes that were sent first. You don't want to hire desperate people.

HR expert over here!

Also throw away the resumes that were sent last. You don't want to hire procrastinators.

Of all the calculated shots, this is the most calculated.

Also, saw this live. Funny to hear him criticize himself then do this.

Incredible, I mean what was that bounce off the ground?!

He's trying to recreate it now in free play, and it's incredibly hard to get a car to bounce like that. Have to hit diagonally on the spoiler and boost as you hit. Even in slow-mo, it looks hard to do.

was so funny 'i shouldnt have done that' 'OMG IM INSANE'

Such a pretty snake.

I wish it all the best.

I first thoight its a ring neck but its obviously not. What kind is it?

According to Wikipedia, some populations of ringneck snakes lack the actual ring around their neck. The ventral coloration is so distinctive here, I can't imagine it being anything but a ringneck. The size, gray body, bright orange fading to red, and black spots are all very distinctive of ring necks.

HECKIN MARY MEEEE

I mowed my elderly neighbors lawn. The people on the left of her mowed a day after. I guess i didnt mow right to the property line. I officially hate these people now.

Leave it. Let it grow nice and tall. Turn it into a neighborhood joke at your dickhead neighbor's expense.

This is the correct course of action.

Even help it along with fertilizer.

I get it. I might even do the same thing, especially if there's been a dispute in the past. Neighbors can get petty about shit. If I'm mowing my lawn, I mow my lawn. I have no idea if you're going to freak out that I mowed your grass that wasn't mine. Maybe you planted something there, maybe you wanted to leave it for some unknown reason, maybe you'll just decide after the fact to start shit because I came on your property. Dunno, none of my business. I mow my lawn and I stay out of other people's lawn.

e: I am getting some of the dumbest replies to this message, I swear. Apparently my desire to just take care of my own business and let my neighbors take care of theirs make me a cripplingly terrified antisocial sociopath or something.

Or even better, go over there and crap on it.
