I FREAKING QUIT!
Yeah, I quit.
And no, I dont mean the first grade teaching job.
But my other job.
For those of you who haven't been following Symphonic Discord for too long, you should know that, I, Constructive Attitude, have been working faithfully at the infamous call center at our University for the past three years.
I am by far, the loyalestestest employee they have. If I do say so myself.
However woe is me, because I was forced to finally depart from my beloved.
Being a teacher is going to take a huge toll on me. I can feel it already. And I need to give it my full devotion and die trying, otherwise I will just be a failure that didnt try hard enough.
So with that said, I will no longer be harrassing alumni from 6-9 every weekday and Sunday, all day asking them to make ridiculous contributions to the University. No longer will I drone on and on about how it is vital for alumni to support blah blah program because due to state funding cuts the university relies on their support. No longer will I pretend to care if people call us solicitors and telemarketers and state that indeed we are not telemarketers because we are a NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION.
For God's sake, WE ARE FREAKING TELEMARKETERS. We drive people NUTS! And we call during dinner/supper/Superbowl/News/Obama's Inauguration etc. PEOPLE HATE US!
Anyways, I began working as a student caller in May 2006 and became a supervisor in August 2007 and resigned twice and came back twice and resigned as a supervisor only to go back to being a caller.
Best employee ever, I tell ya.
I was the first one among friends to start working there and I think I referred about 20+ friends and my sister to this job. Half of Symphonic Discord has worked there as well (Including Artistic Logic, Mrs. Cullen and Controlled Chaos)
I've been told to Shut the eff up, don't ever effing call here anymore, asked if I understood English, spoke English, heard English, called foreign, laughed at, mocked at, probably spit at, barked at, snorted at,asked "You must not be from around here", and hung up on numerous times.
I've also raised approximately $300,000 for this place in the past three years. $90,000 this year alone. Not to brag or anything. ;)
But as everyone constantly keeps stating it's just time to let go.
So farewell to thee, but not farewell to all my fondest thoughts of thee
(Watch me write a post in about a week saying I just cant live without that place and how I went back)
