I figured, since everyone else in the blog world is on a rant, I might as well vent a little, too.
While my job is not hard (answer the phone, sort the faxes and the mail, read other people's blogs, etc.) it is sometimes quite trying to talk to STUPID PEOPLE on the phone all day long. This is a conversation that's been repeated at least once a day for the last two weeks:
Me: "Okay, I'll give them your message."
Them: "Thanks. And what's your name?"
Me: "No. SAR-ah."
Me: "No. *hissing* Ssssssssssarah."
Them: "Is that with a T or a K?"
Me: (WTF?) "With an ESS. As in SARAH."
Them: *confused as hell* "Oh. Okay. . .thanks, Farrah."
Me: *cheerily* "You're welcome, Dick."
Me: "Oh, it's Rick? Sorry. . ."
