Andrei in the office

The level of stupidity in the business world...

I have a phone line for my Apolo Productions work. The phone is listed as "Apolo Productions."

I get constant calls from Vendors that want me to lease credit card machines. I also get calls from agencies who want to list us.

So far this has got to be one of the stupidest script bound callers I have ever received:

Now, I will admit... I was a bit of a smart ass on this call. I was never snide in my voice. But I have to admit... from question one my respect for whoever was going thru their phone script dropped to zero.

The person on the line was always Stepford-plesant. Never reacted to anything that was said. Pressed on thru the script regardless of the obviousness of the situations. I am slowly coming to the opinion that any company that feels this is the level of customer interaction they should offer is a company that really isn't worth my time.

Just my morning rant. Off to the office.
