Things not to do if you do not want to not piss me off
« on: April 27, 2011, 07:22:31 PM »
Send me the following email:

Hey <me>:

I have a folder on my desktop; not sure what it is, but believe it has something to do with refresh?

<attachment>

What might this be?  Do I still need this?

Thanks!

And then proceed to attach a 1GB zip file of the entire folder.

Another thing not to do:
Ignore everything I say and then proceed to do the opposite and then get pissed at me when it doesn't work.

Oh, and then ignore when I tell you repeatedly I can't hear a word you're saying and put me on speakerphone.

1GB?

You'd think that said person would have some sense to either...

A) Warn you about the size of it first before sending it.
... OR
B) Try and briefly sum up the contents of the folder and what may or may not be attached for closer inspection.

Surely it isn't that hard to think about. Stupid person, look what you're doing to TSO! A stressed TSO is not fine at all.  :ohdear:

The second I hear anyone switch to speakerphone I tell them I'm having trouble hearing them.

I hate that shit.  You want handsfree, use a headset.

I normally don't mind it unless the guy is mumbling.  Worst part is I couldn't hear him when he was on handset and he decides to switch to speakerphone with no warning.

I spent 3 hours with this speakerphone guy this morning.  I'd tell him to do something and he wouldn't tell me he finished until I asked him like 10 minutes later and he'd act all indignant going "OH I WAS DONE 5 MINUTES AGO".

A typical exchange with speakerphone guy

:V I need you to give me the IP address of the new machine
:derp: The old one?
:V The new one.
:derp: The old one?

:V What's that IP address?
:derp: mumble mumble .253.2 mumble mumble
:V Can you repeat that?
:derp: mumble mumble .243. mumble 23 (note he changed numbers even on the ones I could hear)
:V I'm sorry, again?
:derp: (turns away from phone) mumble mumble mumble
:V :persona:

What should have been a 15 minute call took 3 hours.

Speakerphones are the worst thing ever.  Whoever invented them should have been strung up by a phone cord.

Another thing that annoys the hell out of me.  Finish up a call with one user, user goes OH HOLD ON MY COWORKER HAS A PROBLEM TOO *passes phone*.  If you have a problem why not, I dunno, CALL?  Why hand the phone off, spend 20 minutes explaining your problem and then go "oh I'm not at my desk I was just in the area" so I can't help you anyways.

Also telling me that you're glad I'm not in India and acting like it's a compliment is a surefire way to get on my good side.  Always. ::)

TSO seems really scary when she's angry :ohdear:

Can you tell me who is dense enough to put a 1GB file in an e-mail? And I hate most speakerphones, you have to yell through them for the other person on the other side to hear you :|

Wait, you mean you are NOT from India?  ???

Indian TSO!

NEW PET PEEVE

Ongoing issue with user, told them I was leaving at 4:30 for the day.  Calls at 4:15 going "I know you're about to leave can you get to me yet?" after I told him I'd call him back after I finished another call (just got off), knowing full well call will take at least an hour to complete.

You know what's horrible? Oh man...

Some phone lines in 3rd world countries are in horrible condition. Every time I call my grandmother, there is an incredible amount of static and her speech is almost unintelligible. I thought I understood Spanish told in most dialects, but when you have this kind of condition, it is almost impossible to understand what the person on the other side is saying no matter how trained your hearing is.

And guess what? I had to help my grandmother fix a printer. She has no knowledge with computers, and with this condition, I failed immediately. Technical support, like TSO just showed above, is loathsome and a royal pain in the ass. Telling her how to change ink cartridges took almost an hour to explain how to do, and in the end... She was unable to do it...

I was only able to witstand 45 minutes until I threw the towel. Incredibly frustrating. Most other things in life do not come close :<

Oh sweet a screamer

:V I'm sorry I can't finish this today, I need to get a new ID file and the person who generates these typically leaves around 3:30pm
>:( SO MY NEW MACHINE DOESN'T WORK?!
:V No sir, I can't do anything until I get the ID file
>:( WELL WHY THE FUCK DID YOU HAVE ME WAIT 4 HOURS BEFORE YOU CALLED ME BACK?! YOU COULD HAVE FIGURED THIS OUT HOURS AGO
:ohdear: Sir there's only one of me and I get 40-50 calls a day and I get to them in the order I receive them
>:( YEAH BUT I CALLED HOURS AGO WHY THE HELL DIDN'T YOU CALL ME BACK?
:ohdear: Because I get calls all through the day, if another call comes in right after I can't just hang up on them.
>:( YOU BET YOUR ASS YOU SHOULD HAVE!  I GOT HERE FIRST YOU NEED TO FIX MY SHIT FIRST!
:ohdear: Well I can't do anything now sir, I won't get an ID file until tomorrow.
>:( I'M CALLING YOUR MANAGER I WANT YOUR ASS FIRED FOR THIS INCOMPETENCE

Thank god I already put in my 2 weeks and I'm getting the fuck out of here.

I've perfected the focused, concentrated look and demeanor so that I can look like I'm in the middle of something at all times.

 :ohdear: Hey Mike, you in the middle of something?
 8)  Crap, crap... one sec...
 :ohdear:  When you're done.
 8) Is this critical?  I gotta get this one right after I'm done with this.
 :ohdear:  Oh, no worries.  Hey, Phil...

And yeah, I think I've perfected the art of call dodging as soon as 4:45 rolls around.

I used to wear my headset around my neck all the time and pretend I was on the call.  That worked for a week but my boss is an ass and now asks me to do things anyways and gets pissed at me when I tell him I'm on a call.

Best part is when they're having a problem and my call is in a lull I'll try to help and he'll yell at me "aren't you on a call finish that!"

If I don't drop everything he gets pissed and if I try to multitask I get yelled at.  Awesome.

I am curious, how do you deal with the varied lexicons people come up with to describe things? I have found my Grans, in their weekly "Why isn't this working?" report, have developed a number of ways to talk about what they don't understand.

"It keeps coming up in front" <---I don't even remember.

I'm fortunate enough to have a relatively teach-savvy mom and a stepdad that used to work for Charter, so while I'm there I don't have to deal with anything like that. MY dad, on the other hand, is always calling me for help with 'the facebooks' and showing him how to delete his browsing history. You know, for entirely legitimate reasons that wouldn't get him crucified by my stepmom. I'm fairly sure I'd off myself in a situation like yours, though.

I've got a few rifles you could borrow, if you need... I'm sure nobody would judge you.  :getdown:
