“I want”, “I deserve”, “I don’t care, I will not leave until i get what I want”

Ohhhh it has been a while since i last typed an article here. Yeah sorry, work, busy, you know. Anyway it’s time to talk about another category of people that most of us had to deal with in our life, either at work or in private. Those people want everything and will not accept a NO. And i get them a lot in my job since I work in customer service. Those people, will be maybe nice at first (or not) but quickly when you tell them “I am sorry sir but ” it will be like letting the flood go, and no matter what you say, they won’t be happy, they will yell.

What do they do first? Try to convince you that you HAVE TO give what they want. Because 1: they deserve it (no you don’t), and second, it’s normal they get it as it was taken from them in the first place (mostly about people who got their account emptied because they gave their password away or let their kids play, and those kids did the whole thing). They should remember that we have absolutely no obligation to do so, and we are doing it because we are nice and want to help people. But no, they will still rage and even scream at you if they can. And that really is annoying. You on the other side, are tempted to just say “You know what dude, no more goodie two shoes, go fuck off and shut the fuck up, learn how to use a computer/internet/security and come back when you got a brain”. But no, you can’t, you have to listen to him yell and yell again.

When they see that yelling and complaining don’t get them what they want, what is their next move? “I want to talk to your superior/manager”…. Right…. Just so he can tell you the EXACT same thing I told you. Just to be precise I work in uk, but all the customer I get on the phone are french. My superiors are British and thus do not speak french (well except the bonjour and oui non). And just for you, most french people (like 95%) don’t speak English or what they know is like “Hello, my name is”. So when I tell them they would need to speak English, then it’s even worse. Because they call a french service so of course I must have french manager and they won’t speak some fucking English.

So now what is the last move? They want to sue you! But of course! And what do they want to sue you about? Not about a whole scam or something big, no, about a little thing or sometimes a game or a product. One thing that might cost them what, 40 quid tops. So let’s calculate: lawyer will cost them much more. And even if they sue you, they will end up against a wall. One of the reason is because it’s a threat and they won’t do it. But when they do it. But french people love that too, at the end when they are in a corner, to say they will sue the hell out of you. And they expect us to be even more scared, run everywhere to satisfy them. But we don’t, we stick there, facepalming, and in the end, they just yell again and again.

Those people are a pain, and they only get stuff out of weak and small companies. But once they end up against big ones or someone who is strong and will not bend over easily, then its impossible to calm them.

Seriously, why can’t they just calm the fuck down and get a little respect there… I hate people…18

Dating websites

Yep, even me i will talk about that. Being born during the caramail boom, i know about dating websites such as Meetic, Adopteaguy.com, edarling, and so many others. I know about them mostly due to adverts on television. I mean what’s better when you are here, nicely comfy in the evening watching the new episode of a serie you enjoy, then the adverts come. Usually you use that time to go to toilet or get a glass of water or tea or whatever. But in some cases, you just end up watching those ads and wondering what the fuck did those guy smoke when they made that crap. Anyway and between 2 ads for some toilet paper soooo soft and long and some washing powder that makes your clothes so white and clean and better than any other (*sighs*) you find some ad for a dating website. And there… you crash…. Your poor brain experience a blue screen of the death like a computer, and the only thing that come to your mind is “WHAT THE FUCK”

Yep, that’s what i was thinking the first time i saw those. The first thing i wonder is why the hell do they make ads for that, or are people THAT desperate to find a boy/girl friend to marry and so on? Because we all know dating websites have been going for a good while, and most of us went on it once, either to test or for a laugh (I am part of the second category) but to find the true love? Come on… Don’t tell me you believe you will find the love of your life on a dating website? O____o And because i know what i saw on it, i can tell, you don’t find true love on that….

Girl side: Of course, ladies first…. although to find true ladies on there, you gotta be fucking lucky. First you find all the girls you find on social networks, the one taking a pic in the bathroom…. Yep that is sexy, especially with the glasses and the flash of the camera or phone. Sexy….. Then you get the one with the duckface… and they think that is sexy to make such a ridiculous face…. Moving on, oh the ones putting pics almost naked and even naked, those don’t look for love, just to get fucked and if they tell you the opposite, they lie. And of course, don’t forget all those who take a pic with a high angle, the camera above them to show their breasts…. And then women, i mean real women wonder why men treat them like bitches and objects…. yeah right….

Boy Side: Same shit as women. Between the one that post pics naked or just of their dicks… Not a joke… I just lose faith in humanity… And then you add those who take a pic with their dog or cat, or with the guitar (i guess some women like that, dunno) or with crazy scenery behind them. Basically with whatever make the woman not look at them but at what they are showing… and mostly,sorry to tell you that guys, we are more attracted to the dog cat guitar or scenery you are taking a pic with, not you. And once they talk to you, the good old: How’s you?…. Like seriously? Can’t you guys be a bit more… i don’t know, inventive? Or do you only know those 3 damn words?

Once you passed the state of talking on that website, usually is continues on msn or Facebook, then the people meet. But the breaking point is here. Even if you talk to let’s say 10 people from the dating website, 3 will make it to the msn address, 2 maybe to meet in real, and just one with who you might end up friend… or in the best case you will date, not for long, it will be over…. What a joke.

And people still believe they can find true love on that… Yeah right!

The joy of hearing companies and others mistakes.

I don’t know if it ever happened to you, but one thing i love to read is something called “Les perles du bac” basically all the stupidities that student writes in the end of high school exam. We all know as student, we mix up our classes and notes, and under the pressure, we happen to write some hilarious thing just to make the one who correct our paper laugh. Consciously or unconsciously, we all did it. but some of you might think that when you grow up and work, it changes…. Naaaaaaaaahhhhhh ^^. That wouldn’t be fun!

First one, happened to my father. He received a weird letter asking him for some money from the health insurance in France. So wondering what it was, he called them. After waiting a few minutes, he gets some human on the phone, gives him his insurance number and tells her his problem with that letter. At that moment he had the speaker on and as he was standing next to me, the woman said: “But Mr, You are dead!”…..  Now imagine the silence and like in manga, my father and me both looking at each other with faces like that … Someone could think she was joking but she was serious. So of course, u laugh when my dad raised the voice, asking her what the hell she was smoking, and saying that if he was dead, he would know about it first before them. That was a nice one.

Or another one, I was good friend with a guy on a game called Elfenlied. He was hated by many, but mostly envied because he was a strong and smart guy. One day after a while off the game, a common friend asked me how he was. So i told him that i only had news from him some month ago, and that he was fine and so on. And then comes the amazing remark, and the worse is he was serious..”What do you mean some month ago, aren’t you two married?” So i replied “In game you mean?” And he told me with all the seriousness of the world “No no, real i mean”… So there i say stop! Why no one invited me to my wedding!!!! And another friend some month later ask me the same, so i reply the same, that he was fine and so on. But then he said “hey how come i don’t see you together anymore, you two broke up? I thought you were living together, you were always together in game”. And now no one invited me to my divorce? O.O And since when was I only together with Elfenlied in game? We teamed up like twice, talked a few in guild, mostly in whisper (private messages) so where the hell did he saw that? So to make it short, within a few months, i was married and divorced  O.O and all that in real….

Or today, i call the formation center to know why after 3 weeks they didn’t reply to me. So i call them, and i give all the information they need, then they tell me (and try to imagine the proper scot accent
“You sent us your registration form but not the application form”. So i tell them
“But i never received any application form!”
“Ah? Oups, i guess we forgot, i will sen you one today then”
Lovely… Don’t tell me i forgot something when you can’t even think of sending me THAT form…..

The lovely mistakes of those people just make me laugh in the end. And if you have any you want to share, i will gladly add them ^_^
