    I thought, since my soul was sucked out today at work by customers, that we need a thread for ppl to vent about work.

    Or to share funny stories or things that happened at work.

    For the kind of craziness I mean...think Dunder Mifflin.

    This is the funniest thing I've heard so far today. How does one cannot operate a pearl?

    I know, right????? Of all the smartphones, I find that berrys are the easiest to figure out. No...apparently the Moto Q is better.

    [email protected] planogram....

    I intend to use that term at work very frequently. In fact, I hope to abuse it very quickly

    I worked in a call center supporting Morgan Stanley at one point... I know what you mean about ID10TS. Those dolts that stretch their taskbar halfway across their screen and request floor support to fix it instead of trying to have the call center do it.

    That and the dimwits that spill stuff on their keyboards, etc. Many a complaint.. I spill orange juice on my unix keyboard. Or I dropped my watch in the subwoofer on my speakers. And the zillions of password resets no matter how simple it was, they couldn't get it and kept f'n it up. Among other MS, and Lotus apps. I don't miss it most times.

    Planograms are annoying... One week stuff is on this shelf.. next week it's at the other end of the aisle. Next month it's 4 aisles away. I hate retail and their lame market schemes to sell stuff to common shopper. Most who are dumber than bricks when it comes to finding product. I've worked on planograms before.. trying to fit stuff in the smallest spaces that they will never fit in.

    I couldn't agree more! Around here it's an oxymoron. Our CIO is a feminazi who has surrounded herself with a crew of "yes" men. I think it was required upon their hiring that they voluntarily give their balls to her to keep in a jar on her desk......

    Our call center is the WORST!!!! I honestly think they are mentally challenged. The only way to get ahead around here is to be completely incompetent.....then they just pawn you off for someone else to deal with.

    See.......i told you this was a bad place for me to hang out. LOL
    More to come......stay tuned.

    I hear you on that also. Used to work for petsmart, they kept changing planograms on the dog treats aisle. They kept changing it for the bags of pig ears, think the price was $20 or $24 for them. Each hook could hold about 7 bags on it and we had about 10+hooks. I forgot the total sales figures for it, but I figured alone I stocked enough about every 2 days or less to pay my entire wages for a year, all $5k total a year....

    That's when that job started annoying me a lot. Paying 8.25/hour to stock overpriced stuff and I'm not the one reaping benefits?
