“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.┬áJust to be┬áprecise 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!

Different generations

I will attack a problem that i think is pretty obvious for some of us who get older. The difference of generations and cultures. More like the generations. Most of us, when we grow older we look at the young people, and when we see how different from us when we had the same age, they are, we wonder… Well that happens to me a lot.

My parents are i guess traditional. They raised me to be someone who take pride in the work i do, to be respectful of other and especially elder people. To be polite and diplomatic, to be honest and even if it’s bad, to tell the truth and yell even if it hurts. To respect objects, people and know the value of money, i think is something most of us, older generations learned from our parents right? Come on tell me I am not alone Q.Q

But now, when i wander in the street of a nice sunny Saturday, wondering what i am going to cook and looking for inspiration for the dinner, it’s when i realize… Young people now, need a damn brain! What draw me to this obvious conclusion? Well first, let’s call them teens, late 18s, walking with their “pals” around, grey pants looking like pyjama ones (O___o) Tshirt and worn shoes (just to look even more ready for bed) and the other ones, same but with the cap on the head. Girls, dressing more than… slutty even when they are young, like 13 year old at max, trying to act like grownups, flirt with men, and they cannot live without a phone, computer and whatever social network they use.

Now i say what the hell? Back in my days, i admit mobile phones weren’t that common nor cheap, and the internet wasn’t unlimited like now. Computer were old big and slow machines, and with friends we didn’t need whatever messenger or phone to know where to meet. We didn’t need any internet to have fun. Alright i get it, time change, that i know. But what about the parents who let their 3 year old kids on the computer “because it’s good for their learning”…. Or those who give kids an ipad? Am I the only one thinking those should stick to barbie and small cars and soccer instead? O.O

And when they grow up, they have so been used to have all that electronic around, that they can’t live without. They lose the respect they have for them self (Sorry but girls 13 acting like little whore, thinking it’s OK to flirt around and more just because it’s cool are stupid!), smoking and drinking like sailors (if i did that back in my days, my mother would have cut me in small pieces and fry me for the birds), swearing more than they should, and disrespecting older people or even others… it kills me. And then they want US to respect them? What a joke….

I know parents aren’t always at fault, some are, but some aren’t, because no matter how good you raise your kid, there will still be some jerk morons and company to make your child go the wrong way. And i guess the good old thing of “No you don’t approach that kid, and yes you will be punished in your bedroom and yes i will take whatever electronic you got” doesn’t work anymore. Because now, parents get sooooooooooooo soft, because their own parents were too rough to them, so they consider that it’s ok to give to their child what they didn’t have.

Well it’s wrong. Look now what they become? Junkies, alcohol addicts, not able to write correctly, to speak or even to work. And if it’s our future, well let’s hope that the end of the world is like VERY near, at the end of 2012 would be great!
