The new employer for Blockbuster employees in Brunswick, GA

After being run around by the job I thought I had in April, I decided to take the unemployment and a well-earned vacation. But I'm back to work at a local call center that handles the customer service calls for several catalogs and websites. It's tough work because we have to learn shitloads about the merchandise, but it's almost as much as I was making as a manager, and I don't have to be in charge, which is so nice.

But then I made a startling discovery: a ton of people I previously worked with at Big Blue are also there! So far, a shift leader, a CSR, an almost-hire and a ton of customers are all there. Another former CSR washed out of training, mostly because she was notoriously impatient and that didn't change when she left Blockbuster.

Ah, memories.

And in that voice, tell them your name is "Chuck".

It is the most racist, insulting thing on network TV. And totally wrong, too. Australians are nothing, NOTHING like Pippa Black's character.

The Indian characters are spot-on, tho
