    Guinness tap out at the Pub. That really grinds my gears. I guess a London Porter is OK though.

    Holy sheepsh*t. We are having a snow shower and the flakes must be at least 1 inch across. Looks like a pillow fight.

    It's May - time to quit this nonsense.

    Irresponsible parents. A 3 year old should never be left to play outside, unattended.

    I work in a call centre and I have a polite opening script that introduces the company and myself, and asks for the caller's name. I will then address them by name, ask what the problem is and take the necessary details.

    What really grinds my gears is people who interrupt my opening script, normally with inane rants about how the product isn't working. It's rude, inconsiderate, and puts the whole call off to a bad start. It's also impossible for me to make any notes about the issue until I've taken a name and a number so I can open a ticket (we have to add notes to an existing ticket if there is one).

    I agree with you 100%:thumbup:We should allow call center to take
    all our information first before we
    begin bitching :D(no matter how much they annoy us and talk to us like we're 5):rolleyes: Don't take me the wrong way but most companies out there train their call
    takers to speak slow and in a clear voice which is great, but if you are using a product or services that don't live up to expectations it's difficult to stay calm on the phone with someone talking to me like I have all day. Again not your fault you were trained that way and only doing your job properly. I blame the companies :banghead:.

    Customers who don't pay any attention to emails. :mad:
    I tell one I can ship NEXT Wednesday and they send me an order to deliver the 16th. Then argue that I told them the 16th.

    Woof! I am so frustrated. I worked for an hour to get a small size photo uploaded to my profile, but it doesn't show in my posts. AND, I am lost, and cannot find the right place to ask what I did wrong, and how to get my photo to display?

    Woof!

    You uploaded it to your profile pic. A few options below that you should see an option to update your avatar. Upload it there and it will show on your posts (I'm not sure if there is a minimum post count before it shows up).

    That is Sandy, my son's rescue mut out of Mexico to LA. A real junk yard survivor. She is part Golden retriever and part small dog. She has red hair, but is not Red Hare. He has left her with me while he lives in Harlem with his significant other.

    Users who post that they need help, you give it, and you never know if it worked....They never post back!

    (And I still can't get an avatar photo on here! I can in other forums, so I am doing it correctly, just not here!)

    Yes, but often some other user will find the thread and your answer and hit thanks, so in the end it works out.

    You uploaded it to your profile pic. A few options below that you should see an option to update your avatar. Upload it there and it will show on your posts.
