That point when you finally decide: "I'm going to get fired!"
    #3887523 - 03/08/05 03:43 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Well that's it. I've had about as much bullshit from this corporation as I can stand!

Today I made the sober decision to get myself fired. Why, you might ask, wouldn't I just quit? Well if I get fired I get a 2-week severence pay, AND I then qualify for unemployment insurence (time to get some of those tax dollars back!).

So, I want to get myself fired. I'm not going to be blatantly obvious about it, because that's not how I like to operate. Instead I'm just going to generally DO NOTHING for the time I am at work.

Any suggestions? I work in PC tech-support, on the phone. Anyone else had this job and decided to fuck it? What did you do? GIVE ME SOME IDEAS!!! :yesnod:

I have an idea...

You can "accidently" send an email to your boss talking about what a big butthole and a huge douche he is. Make it clear that you thought you were emailing a friend.

PC tech support is really hard to get fired from. I know cause I had a job like that for a while. I came in 15-20 minutes later than all the other phone agents, was constantly on break, and would take an extra half hour for lunch every day. my boss called me into his office all the time to bitch at me but never fired me. go figure...

here's my suggestion: do something funny like tell people blatantly false info, or that they called the wrong number, even though they went through the "press # for this" sequence when they got through, or pretend to have a thick Indian accent and keep asking the caller to repeat everything they say until they get frustrated and hang up. have fun with it..

Yes, I used to work phone tech support and it was indeed a shit job. The job quickly lost its appeal as soon as I realized that the goal was to get the customer off the phone as quickly as possible rather than actually help them. Also the business I worked for was run by dumbasses from some sort of hellish insane asylum. We did tech support for Gateway computers and they practically went under since then so I was going to lose that job eventually anyhow.

Just stretch out those calls as long as possible..You said you weren't doing much anyway, why not have fun with it? Engage the callers in long conversations about any topic that interests you while you wait for scandisk to complete or some other long, drawn out meaningless task. You'll eventually get fired for your marathon call times and have fun doing it.

Actually, I have been told on MANY occaisions that I need to MAKE MY CALLS LAST LONGER!!!!

Yes, that's right. My handle time is "too low" at 12 minutes/call average. My handle time is low because I actually know how to use a computer and can usually get them fixed in 5-10 mins...yet the management thinks this is "too low" and that I should have a handle time TWICE as long as what I do.

Maybe I should go for a 60-second average handle time? :yesnod:

Wow. Our call time target was eight minutes.

Yeah, shoot for sixty seconds. :lol:  Get their info and have them run scandisk and call back when its done.

Hmm..When they call back do they get a random tech support person or can they call you direct?

They get a random agent. It helps to raise the level of customer anger/disatisfaction :lol:

That's the weirdest thing... a LONGER call time?

Just keep hitting the release button, over, and over, and over, and over, and over...

Make fun of customers. Take off your headset, and just start playing games.

See if you can install Debian on your computer.

Heh. Yeah, those were always the most pissed off callers. The ones who had called multiple times with no resolution (usually due to their inability to follow instructions) were the worst. It was always fun sorting through their call history while they fumed. Those callers I usually dropped at the first hint of attitude. I'd put them on hold and for some reason always seemed to hit the disconnect button while coming off hold. Clumsy me.. :evil:

I've hung up on more people today than I have in the entire 13 months of previous work :grin:

I've also started answering the phone using celebrity names. Fabio and Arnie have thus far made an appearance.
