Because of the pandemic and how most of the people in my institution's I.T department are working from home we were asked to route calls from our work extension to our home phones. I did it to my cellphone and some of the calls that I get are hilarious, yet annoying. Annoying because we have a bunch of boomer ass people making the most ridiculous calls.
Being that the calls are not registered into our phones they just show the random number from which x person is calling.
Just right now my phone rings aaaand:
Boomer: "YES <tech support technician's name which is obviously not mine> I NEED YOU TO FIX MY EMAIL IT IS NOT WORKING AND MY LAPTOP IS NOT WORKING"
Me: "I am sorry, I don't know how did you get this number, but what we can..."
BOOMER: WELL CAN I PLEASE SPEAK TO THE TECHNICIAN? I NEED THIS TO GET FIXED RIGHT NOW
Me: As I was saying, we can attempt to send an email through your phone's outlook app if you have it installed or I can send an email asking them to contact you since you are reaching an entirely different dep..."
Boomer: "DID YOU NOT HEAR ME! MY LAPTOP IS NOT WORKING AND I CAN'T SEND EMAILS AND I DON'T WANT TO USE MY PHONE, I WANT TO USE MY LAPTOP"
Me: Did YOU not hear me? I just said that I can send an email for you since my computer is working properly, at the same time, not wanting to use your phone to send an email when you have no other option available is more of a YOU problem, it is not mine
Boomer: EXCUSE ME! WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE TALKING TO? i AM THE MANAGER OF <X> DEPARTMENT
Me: nice to meet you I guess, I am the MANAGER of X department as well, i have been told that for issues with my attitude I can just toss you over to <Director of IT> if you wish.
Boomer: Oh....no...thank you, I will send an email through my phone and see if that works.
Some background: The Head of my department is a hardass that is not scared to tell people to fuck off when they are messing shit up and he is very protective of all of us. I love this man and have personally followed the dude through hell when no one else came through. If they think I am bitchy that dude would throw down an entire house over people being dense, and even though he is a boomer himself (age terms) he despises the general attitude of entitled people from his generation.
10/10 I love my boss and hope to heaven that all of you find similar leaders.11
I am absolutely pissed and I'll cover multiple topics today.
I am paid peanuts. Literal peanuts for the kind of experience I have, the knowledge I possess, and the skills I bring to the table.
I work over time with absolutely no perks whatsoever.
My biggest mistake was I stayed loyal to this absolute shit brand who just squeezed more and more out of me every single day.
I am sooooooo underpaid that even if I get a 250% raise, I'd still not reach market standards.
I absolutely fucking hate my employer with burning passion for I learned or earned nothing here.
What more? With lockdown and work from home, they have increased our workload.
Not just that, they take pride in saying that team is working hard and over time.
Moreover, my sub-team is low on workforce so burn outs are more frequent these days.
Now they brought in this boomer retard who claims to have 30 years of industry experience but is absolutely nut. The stinking pig with torturing capabilities that of 4th dimension.
That Cricket just cannot shut up. He talks and talks and talks and keeps talking.
If someone is talking, he'll start his own story and talk over them. Forget rudeness, he doesn't even know how to talk yet he'll talk.
If someone interrupts to mention that he's been talking for past 2 hours nonstop and time is over, he'll still continue talking.
The VP is pissed. The team is pissed. The almighty lord is pissed by his talking but retard still talks.
And in the end he'll put a disclaimer that he is new so learning and doesn't know anything about the product.
And then he'll talk some more.
For the sake of Gautama Buddha, stitch your filthy mouth and just stop.
Now we have these bi-weekly calls late at night. Everyone in the team already had screen time of 12 hours. We are mentally drained with no brain power left and this guys walks in full fresh ready to destroy our leftover souls.
People want to go for dinner. We have life outside laptop. Only if this idiot realises that he needs to stop.
Today he got on my every nerve and I dropped the call where every member of management was present.
The first thing tomorrow morning I'll be doing is either give him a sweet feedback or raise a concern with my manager.
Absolutely hating my situation and want to get out of this shite hole as soon as I can.
If you lack the ability to listen, be polite, or not respect other's boundaries/opinions then you can go and fuck yourself with a bamboo dipped in hot chocolate.45
