I’m bored and sick and I need something to do.
So next time you have to call any type of business on the phone, please be as polite as possible; be kind, speak clearly and be understanding if you are asked to repeat things multiple times. And I understand everyone hates to be put on hold, so do I, but they are likely scrambling to get the needed info ready to take your call. Also understand that the person who first answers your call is more often than not a receptionist who is unable to truly assist you, so hold off on explaining your whole problem; give them a chance to transfer your call. If you are upset, please understand that the person who picks up the phone is probably not the source of your anger. So be kind to the receptionist and whoever they may transfer you to because they are trying their best to help you and there may be a chance it’s me you are talking to on the phone and let me just tell you, I am terrified and I cringe every time I hear the phone ring.

Oh my god
it probably seems like i cry over stupid shit but tbh i usually end up crying because i’ve stored up all of my upset feelings from multiple things rather than express them and then the littlest thing sets me off like spilling my drink may not be that big of a deal but when i’ve stored up that many negative emotions it feels like i busted a hole in the hoover dam
Have a wonderful day!!
