I don't think I wowed the Wendy's lady this afternoon. No matter, I have another interview on Tuesday with Bookmans. How cool would that be? Working at Bookmans? Being all, oh hai, I work at Bookmans, I get 1st dibs on stuff.

Well, I don't know if I would get first dibs, but it would still be cool to say, no? That and getting coffee from Coffee Van Go, YUM! (Seriously, he has good stuff)

Tomorrow is the big scary test. The big, scary, 35 question, you can take it twice, you only need an 80% to pass, test. Really?

We did "y-jack" today. That's when you split the cord between two headsets so someone can listen in. It's kind of fun, really. The customer doesn't know that someone else is hanging out on the call and you can be all making faces at the csr and stuff. :) I was put with this kid, T. I waited for him to be finished with his call so that I could plug my amp into his phone. I didn't want to mess with his groove or anything, so I waited. For about 10 minutes. When his call was over, he turned to me and said, "I don't DO y-jacking. I don't know WHY they put you with ME."
I wish I could convey the sheer douchitude of this fucker.

No matter, I head off to find a team lead and say, "Hi, apparently that guy doesn't "do" y-jacking. Is there someone else you can put me with?" I would have been happy to go back to the classroom and read. Seriously. No biggie, puts me with this chick.

The real beauty of doing the y-jack? You get some dirt on the company and your soon to be fellow coworkers. For example, one of the ladies sitting on the other side of the cubicle has been there for 3 years. She got one raise, of $.21, and was capped out. She gets half the star bonus (so only $1 more per hour out of $2). $9.71/hour. *shakes head*

I was also filled in on the various fist fights that have gone on during the work day on the floor, drug issues, some chicks having tweak outs or whatever in the bathroom. AWESOME.

I can't wait to get the fuck out of there.

That term "y-jacking" sounds like something that surely must have an off-color meaning of some sort.

If it doesn't, we should make one up.
