Just needing a small vent...I feel a little better

Friday was insane today, which it generally isn't. Here is the reason why. You see, if you have a prepaid account, you can access the mobile web for a flat fee for 24 hours. No airtime, nothing, just this less than $1 for 24 hours. Pretty good deal, right?

Even better was that it was free! Yes, kids, that's right, free. There was a billing system glitch that would let people get on with a zero balance and just have fun on the interwebs doing whatever they wanted from their mobile phones. The client fixed that little problem.

Some of the doozies:

"Y'all suck. Why you gotta be charging people for the innernet?"
"But, I got on yesterday and I didn't have any money on my balance!"
"It never charged me before? Is this new?"
"Y'all always gotta be takin' all my damn money all the time. Y'all so expensive, I'm gonna go to *competitor*"

All day long I just wished I had a recording, "There was a billing system error on our end that was not charging accounts for mobile web access. They fixed the billing error. You will need to make a payment to your account. Would you like me to take a payment for you today?"

*bangs head into the phone repeatedly*

Oh, and to Mr. Eff You pants, it's not my fault you don't remember that you called someone at 4:00 this afternoon. It's not mobile to mobile therefore it is not "free" as you all love to say, it charged you 30 cents, I'm sorry, but them's the facts. No, tech support can not help you with this, learn to remember what carrier your friends are on if you want to call them outside of your nights and/or weekend calling. If you had bothered to listen to what I was saying, you would have understood that your fee was already covered for Saturday, you were just effed for Sunday if you didn't get a payment on there. Your poor money management is not my issue.

And to Ms. My Grandbaby Had The Phone. LOCK CODE! Seriously? You are calling two days later about "button mashing". Then your grandbaby has some pretty awesome button mashing skills AND is quite the talker, those calls were into over 10 second status. There is no way I was crediting back any of the money to the account. Learn to take some responsibility for your things.
mood: blahblah

I've never been too fond of it either. And the way she kept saying it, just grated on my nerves.

what's wrong with granddaughter or grandson?

Wednesday Lee Friday: Work
Oh...so you work for one of those evil companies that tries to make a profit by selling a product or service to consumers. What DICKS!!!

In all seriousness, my mantra more and more is "How can anyone be that stupid and rude in one conversation?" I'm of the belief that if you're totally right and I'm totally wrong, I'l take a little dicketry even though it's not necessary. But if you have no idea what you're talking about, and I'm trying to help you--STFU and listen, and Be Nice!

People asking me questions and then talking or yelling over my answers is my current peeve. Then I just stop talking and let the silence continue until I'm sure they're finished flapping their gums. "Oh, okay...I didn't want to interrupt you." *snerk*
picword: Work

Yes! I do that, "Hello? Are you still there?"
"Yes, I'm here, I wasn't sure if it was my turn to answer your question or if you had any other questions. May I answer them now?"
