The customer is calling in to tell you what’s wrong, and you’re looking for ways to sell them service.
Vintage cameras that now live in my office.
Comcast Confessions: when every call is a sales call | The Verge
Every time I call my cable company, which thankfully isn’t Comcast, to complain about lackluster speed or regular, seemingly random drops in connection, they pitch me phone service, or cable service. The last time I asked a representative why I would trust them to deliver more service when they couldn’t even do what I was paying them for well. It wasn’t his fault, but how goddamn tone deaf do you have to force reps to push sales on calls about broken service?
But when you’re the only service provider for an area, what incentive do you have to do otherwise?
I’m still torn on whether this is the greatest thing I’ve ever done or the stupidest.
This is how I used to play Grand Theft Auto. Highly recommended.
In other words, you don’t have to really fast, just kind of think of yourself as fasting. You know, go through the motions. It’s official: Family Foundation found the laziest form of protesting possible – protest by imagination.

I’m a Wind Tiger, which sounds pretty damn awesome. My cousin, whose birthday is Dec. 2, however, is a Wind Ox. Much less awesome (but surprisingly accurate, come to think of it).
Waiting for my computer to be moved, so I Knoll’d part of my desk. It won’t stay that way.
New office. Worse cell phone reception here, but I have a yellow accent wall to distract me from that fact.
It’s a long season. You just have to grind it out. That’s what baseball is. You just have to keep going.
Sometimes you turn your desk into an ersatz product photo studio.
Found while cleaning out my desk: A manual for a camera that was obsolete nearly a decade before I started working here. Does that count as a #tbt?
