Relay Calls  

Posted in ,

For those of you who work in a call center you guys must have heard of relay calls. Those calls wherein you dont actually speak with the customer but instead you speak with an operator who relays to you the customers’ information. The customer in turn types in their questions to the operator via chat or text service. These types of calls usually take a LONG time to finish. So long that I often wonder how the relay operators can stay patient in doing it. I think of the operator and i realize I’m glad I don’t have her job. Enormous patience I tell ‘ya. Imagine having to end each sentence that you or she says with "Go ahead" to confirm that you’re done with the message. I’m actually on a relay call now and its taking so long for the customer to reply that I can update my blogs while speaking with the operator. The operator types in my instructions and relays it to the customer and she reads to me the customer’s reply. And here I thought I had the shittiest job! Ü

I still have access!! Our IT people here at work found a way to prevent access to Friendster, so I initially thought that was the end of my blog-life.. but lo and behold! Thanks to a proxy website that a friend of mine referred me to, I have access! In your faces! Let the good times roll!

Here Comes Two-Oh-Oh-Six!!  

Posted in , ,

Well the past year went like a blast! Oh-five saw a lot of things happen that I can barely remember all of the good (and the bad) things that have happenned, but here are a few things that stood out:
  1. I did quite well at work and almost got promoted twice. Though I almost lost my job because of what a friend and I did. But it was the same friend who saved me, and he got fired because of it. I still owe you one bro!
  2. Actually I got two jobs this year, although the second one I still need to get a little more focused on. The company I previously worked in took me back so I now have two jobs, isn’t life grand?
  3. A lot of my friends had their babies this year, so oh-five was like the birth of the next generation of the gang.
  4. FPJ fans commemorated his first death anniversary. (So?)
  5. I met someone, and lost her the same year.
  6. Friendships became so much stronger, and I found some really good friends worth keeping for a lifetime.
  7. Bands like Hale and Cueshe came out with one-hit-wonders. (again, so?)
  8. The Nadiz got reunited!
  9. Some of my teammates at work got promoted, others got fired, and others just quit. We went through three coaches this year, and I guess you could say that what the team went through was like a roller coaster, with team members coming in and out and all the controversy that has hounded this group. But we made it through.
  10. I got replaced as Music Ministry adviser, but that was perfectly OK with me. I was going to let go of that position anyway, because of my night schedule at work. I’m happy that the guy who replaced me was actually the person who I was going to recommend as the new adviser.
In retrospect, two-oh-oh-five had been great, and I am looking forward to a blessed and fruitful oh-six. I just feel grateful for every blessing that I received and every experience I have gained. Surely, two-oh-oh-six would have so much more in store for everyone. Have a blessed and prosperous New Year!! Ü
