SpamBot by Swashbookler SpamBot by Swashbookler
EDIT: I fixed a typo and changed what the Spambot was saying in frame 2 cuz it was causing the wrong reaction.

XD, I worked in a call center as a verification specialist for pharmesuitical billing purposes on workers compensation claims and even when you had genuine business purpose in calling, people are mean.
And for some reason, Illinoise was the meanest, even Wisconsin folk I spoke to told me there was tention between the two states. Nobody wanted to work that state in the company I was with. I acutally cried when I was calling that area. Unless Illinoise nurses and insurance adjusters were just mean.
But so long as I don't have to do that job again, I have nothing against Illinoise.

I'll tell you one thing Illinois has which might make people meaner... Chicago.

I never say a word to telemarketers. I just hang up the moment I realize it is one.

Though there was the one time when I was learning Spanish back in High School (and back then it was not a requirement from certain jobs to speak Spanish like it is now) and I answered the telemarketer in Spanish and had a hoot playing around with the poor guy.

Though nowadays if I do it again I'll do it in German. :D

my friend makes and receives calls for scheduling at his job and he has perfected the automated teller voice so well that people will actually wait silently for the part where they are supposed to hear "to do this press 1, to do this press 2" because they think he is just a recording

I agree with you totally on this one... I work in a technical help desk for my company's computer systems and such. One of the contracts we have is that we talk to students and assist them with getting their computer set up for them to take classes. One day I was actually called a "stupid, automated, computer guy". People suck!

I am always polite to telemarketers or call centres just because I could never do what they do.
The end panel did make me laugh though :D

I feel bad for both people, the caller and the call-E. One person getting bitched at and another just tired of being reminded they have money to pay when they don't have it.

...
Great comic by the way : D

It was just the nurses and insurance adjusters, or maybe it's just the fact that where I live we're a lot more friendly with people from Wisconsin because we're not very far from the state line, hour, 2 hour, maybe three hours away from the state line. I see a lot of wisconsin liscens plates on cars, but it's fun to see where the cars came from. The most unusual one was Rhode Island. I mean honestly, who drives their car all the way from Rhode Island to northern Illinois?

I've seen some pretty distant liscence plates myself before, and where the western states are so large, if you get anything furthur than Kansas you know that was a long drive.

Tell me about it! I went to Yellowstone last year and I saw 49 out of 50 license plates. The one I did not see?

Alabama.

Even saw one from France and England. Now *that* is a long trip :-p

I have a question, are you a telemarketer? Or one of those people who calls to let you know about something? My family's pretty good at dealing with them in a nice way, but I've heard of people who're nasty to people who have that type of job.

My job wasn't telemarketing, it was verification for claims processing and I only called specific companies, etc... so it was important but I still was treated like a telemarketer.

oh, my mistake. I hope that in the future more of the people who answer the calls that you make are nicer to you; I can imagine a job were people insult you or make rude remarks can be very depressing.

oh call centers...shudders. yes, people are mean. I got a pretty decent amount of yellings to as well. though on occasion I had a few decent people, though one I will never forget, had me on the line for HOURS. I dunno how long exactly, but she lasted me until the end of my shift and I got her in my early shift hours. she was an Ex-standup comedian, lemme tell you, when she got into her routine, there was NO stopping her XD she was hilarious as heck, but I couldn't get a word in XD
