You know I had to think about this, as for so long it has been the habit to be rude to a telemarketer and not thinking of them as humans I suppose. Some one with feelings or that they have a life that this job keeps the wolf from the door. I have never been abusive but I have been rude and hung up on them not considering how they feel.
The main occupational hazard of this job is, as you can imagine Stress. “Repetitive and intensive work, targets and tight supervision, and monitoring” are key reasons for this.
“Call scripting, excessive workloads, unfair pressure to minimise wrap times and the effect of abusive and difficult customers” also cause “emotional exhaustion”.
The alternative to this is say sorry not interested and end it with “Enjoy the rest of your shift or “have a nice day. “
“If you don’t want to buy anything, make this very clear at the start and ask to be taken off the records. That way the worker will not think there is a chance of sale.
“Be firm [but] say something nice at the end.”
I know this will be difficult for some, actually many, but think about it would you like your son or daughter be continually every day spoken to like this. Because remember some of those employees are often desperate for work and it is a way of making a living they don’t have many choices.
Remember Be firm but polite. If there is a problem just ask for the supervisor.
Four Marines were Shot and Killed yesterday
By a 24 year old terrorist in a cold and brutal way
How stupid is the law that no marine on base can carry a gun
No way to protect themselves from all that training done
Many have been killed in this type of situation before
Would not common sense tell you in todays time, more was in store
A Mother and Father, Wife and siblings will be feeling such unmentionable sorry
For those Four Marines there will be no hugs or smiles there will be no tomorrow
I am lost to understand these needless deaths from those that have such crazy evil intent
Is it not payback time, show our intolerance, the anger we must vent
We let this culture come into the country, they sift among us as a stool pigeon
We are told to be politically correct, we are forced to accept their religion
I feel grief for those who lost their loved ones. It won’t be the last there will be more
For goodness sake Mr President get angry, show some remorse, show you care some for those four
For these next few days and for evermore these boys family will realize it is the end
So Mr President I hope you enjoy your father and daughter weekend
I found this picture very powerful and In my opinion we need to realize these boys and girls need a lot more support than they are getting from their country when they come home. Again in my opinion we do not need to send these boys or girls to any more worn torn countries, their problems will never be solved by us as it all stems from Biblical times that will continue for centuries.
We need our soldiers home to protect our country not anyone else’s – Just sayin.
I am sure that all of us with children feel his sadness and pain.
A friend of a friend, posted this picture of a military dad waiting to board his flight, trying to say goodbye to his newborn daughter. Made me hug my kids a little longer, and made me fill with gratitude for the incredible sacrifices our military members make.
Hit “like” if you are also grateful for all they do for our freedom! — with Daniel Joe Sam.
This was sent to me and it made me remember my time with my own Grandkids when they were that age. I used to take them for a ‘Nanna walk’ to the beach. We would go to the coffee shop afterwards meet my friends and have our morning cappuccino and my Grandkids would have what they would call ‘babychino’s’ (warm milk and froth sprinkled with chocolate and maybe a marshmallow). I loved it and a great memory for me but they were so small they probably don’t remember it at all.
I take my daughter outside somewhere in “nature” almost every single day. She sits and quietly takes in everywhere I bring her. I couldn’t be more proud. (via imgur.com)
