I had a job for a half-year doing telephone surveys. There are some strange calls out there, and some of the imagined stories in my head were equally strange.
Oh the stories I could tell you from my 2-ish years working in call centres…And for a period of time I was one of the “Supervisors,” so the majority of my calls were predisposed towards being “interesting”
Side note: “Supervisor” is often just a normal rep with better people skills and a better working knowledge of what can and cannot be done. I was handling rebates, and the only thing that I could do that a normal rep couldn’t would be to put a rush on it if they had been waiting only 5 business days (a normal rep had to wait 7).
I thought calling up a convent (we never saw where the numbers came from) to ask if they were using the new local maternity hospital was as weird as I could get… until half an hour later, when the number I called turned out to be another phone-survey company. When you gaze into the abyss….
