Thanks to Sandy, I now know I don't want to live on the East Coast. Vent Thread
a whole bunch of self absorbed, self entitled assholes live there...no thanks, it's beautiful, but I'd rather stick it out with my fellow Midwesteners who went more than 2 weeks without electricity when Ike went through and took it all in stride.


I work for a cable, internet and phone provider. Tech support.

I have been pulling 12-15 hour shifts since Oct 29th, today is my first day off.


I want to vent, because I hate my life right now (and will continue to until my check arrives)


I'm sorry that the DAY AFTER Sandy hit, I couldn't get a technician out.

I'm sorry that a week later, some people are still without service. Infrastructure was heavily damaged in some areas, but I guess that doesn't matter to you because god damn it you want to watch Greys Anatomy

I'm sorry that we cannot "follow the electric companies and restore service to people that have power first!!!" (and we do restore people that have power first, your shit wont work without electricity anyway)

I'm sorry that millions of other people were affected and that you called in after them and thus have to wait longer than them to get service restore.

I'm sorry that you had to wait on hold for a maximum of 30 minutes during the busiest periods. and I am sorry I cannot just hire more people to answer the phones, this job does require training. 2 months of it...but I guess we should have known this was coming and been prepared. Sorry.

I'm sorry I cannot skip the hour of time I have off the phones during my 15 hour shift. I am legally required to have 2 15 minute paid breaks and an unpaid, half hour lunch. Maybe I can skip the lunch, but my employer wont let me.

I'm sorry that you "don't know what to do with your kid with TV." I'm sorry I cannot suggest that you read him a story or go outside and throw a ball around. I'm sorry that your parenting skills suck.

I'm sorry that all I can be is nice and polite. I'm sorry that when you yell at scream at me, calling me a "dumb bitch" and a "fucking asshole" and "low life stupid cunt that doesn't know what it's like to suffer" that I can't tell you to shove it, that hundreds of thousands of people near you are suffering far more than just not being able to check their emails. That some lost their homes and businesses entirely and others even loved ones.




And I want to thank all the thoughtful, understanding people who have been affected by Sandy. You've been through a lot and you've done it all with a remarkable sense of perspective and community. It's people like you who get me through my day, it's just a pity you are so rare. It's for people like you that I am going to donate all my overtime pay to help those affected by Sandy. Thank you.

@ AC 6431677

why is he disgusting? He didn't include the people who were patient and polite...his venting was at the assholes who call up and yell at people like him, people who are just doing their job and trying to help

what, is he supposed to accept verbal abuse without any response?

I guess you must be one of those who feel it's your right to yell at some poor shmuck at the other end of the phone, unleash your venom on a hapless employee who just happens to have a job trying to help you

I think your response was out of line and more indicative of how you probably treat people than anything OP said

Re: Thanks to Sandy, I now know I don't want to live on the East Coast. Vent Thread
OP I totally feel your pain. Working in retail I watched as people became raving lunatics because there was no bread, milk, cheese, generators, or gas cans. I watched multiple people get run over by shopping carts by impatient nitwits who should have been paying attention to the world around them before Sandy and while shopping. I hear you that most people were not thinking and are not at their best when they're at their worst. Retail, customer service, and basic care services are suffering the backlash of people that need a reality check of what reality really is. There are people who had less than them that died in this storm. Not many but even if one person died because they had no home than it is one too many.

People need to get a sense of priority. TV is a luxury for some. So is a computer. So is a car (I know this one having had to junk my poor baby a couple of weeks ago to undercarriage damage). I realize that a home is a luxury but a necessary thing to have a roof over your head.

OP it's not your fault that you met the worst scumbags of our area. It's the fact that most of them live in weak-structured McMansions in the middle of nowhere and far too near to the coast. 100 year old homes have better structure and were designed with bad weather in mind. You see most of these in the well-populated cities and since they are so close to each other it is much easier to reconnect them quickly.

Feel free to vent it out so it doesn't fester inside. People will suck the life outta you if you let them. Sit down, enjoy your favorite beverage, and try to enjoy your day off. Turn the answering machine on and think of something decent, something good. Those peeps calling you names don't know you and are lucky that you're a decent person who cares enough to work such a difficult shift to get them serviced. hugs
