    Honestly, I really like them for a corporate account. They're funny, they interact with people, they hand out a lot of coupons, people being weird people were begging for steak umms merch so they released a bunch with all profits going to meals on wheels.

    I mean I'm sure there's problematic shit there but whatever they're fun to interact with

    Google had me sign in to my account yesterday on my home machine and it freaked me out. Probably some window update reset my cookies. Weird thing was it was saying authorize a machine in redmond when I live in bothell, but I remembered that for some reason the geo coding for my area (like weather apps etc) always tags us in redmond.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    Sad truth of the matter is capitalism works exactly the way we always feared it does, businesses give zero fucks about the individual customer and that is 100% down to a vocal minority of lunatics that make it impossible to run a real complaints process.

    We wouldnt keep employees longer than a week if complaints actually meant anything. Complaints and report functions are basically like the buttons on the road crossing, pushing them makes eejits feel like they're in control but really the button isn't hooked up to anything.

    I'd really struggle in a position where I'd have to take a lot of calls at a desk. I'm pretty much incapable of talking on the phone without pacing around. But a body in motion is a mind in motion and all that.

    The lunatic minority are actually running things too. There's just a lunatic poor minority that is upset that they aren't yet rich too and feel the need to yell at a customer service rep because of it.

    China's continued descent into creepy state dystopia with government/ccp run dating activities!

    I mean it is kind of creepy but actually China isn't the first. Tokyo and a few other municipalities in Japan have done stuff like this off and on for years to try and get the Japanese to have babies.

    I think the creepy part is that it is run by the CCP. Thus you get that faux Marxist creepiness to it.

    Hey Atomika. How did that session with your ma and the therapist go? Did you talk about it here? If not, that's cool. I was just wondering.

    It went . . . okay. Not awful. Within the bounds of realistic expectations. A decent enough effort to keep trying to move forward.

    She says I should probably write off my dad and brother, however. Not that I hadn’t already.

    when phone calls at home stretch on I sometimes find myself getting dressed, putting on coats, going outside, and walking like four kilometres down the road while talking, without thinking about it at all

    many years ago i had a customer trying to play hardball with getting credit for a returned part she hadn't actually sent back yet

    and i calmly explained that i needed the part back before i could issue credit for several minutes

    but she wouldn't relent and kept getting shittier

    so finally i just said, "look, you fucking shithead, if you want your god damned credit you're going to have to send the fucking part back first" and hung up on her

    and apparently she was just offended that i said "god damned"

    they don't let me talk to customers much anymore

    Okay but

    Fuck people like that

    The world is full of people whose go-to phone move is "just be shittier and shittier" because they're relying on companies using phone people as sacrificial lambs until they eventually throw the angry customer some bone and it works often enough with no repercussions

    Fuck 'em

    oh i have no regrets for sure

    i don't take shit from nobody

    *brofist*

    It gets jack shit from me either. If they keep making the same demand to me I just keep saying EXACTLY the same sentence to them in a progressively more and more "explaining like they're five" tone of voice and if they swear at me I'm like "I don't have to take your call byeee" and hang up on them

    Basic rules of being a customer on the phone to me,

    1) The customer is not always right. I'm the one doing this professionally, I'm the one that tells you how it is not the other way around.

    2) You the customer is the one asking me for help, I am not obliged to give it. Speak to me like an asshole and you can find someone else to deal with your problem for you.

    3) If I say I'm not going to be providing you with service for whatever reason there is a finite amount of time I'm going to spend 'splainin it to you. No I don't care what you're going to do now that's your problem not mine, I got shit to do today other than repeating the word "no" to you for an hour.

    It's amazing how many people get on the phone to customer service people thinking they're the ones in complete and total control and it veeeeerrrryyy much does not work like that, you come on my turf you're playing by my rules SON.
    Yeah, no reason to be rude. It is important to know what you can and cannot do in terms with calling customer service. If it is outside the normal realm of shit they are allowed to do come in from a different avenue.

    Personally I like to email the executive assistant of someone with some pull. I keep a contact list for such incidents.

    That being said other than having Comcast replace a router that was busted, then recall that router they replaced 3 weeks later and send me another one. In a fucken bizarre game of router hot potato where they ended up giving me a small credit on my bill because of the inconvenience (I didn't ask they just did it). I haven't had to call customer service recently. My shit just all works.

    That's awesome but man

    the potential fps... I guess probably From doesn't port it themselves.

    I've seen enough DS to not want to buy a remaster for PS4 but if it comes to Switch I will easily buy it if it's over 10fps.

    It’s a 3rd party porting I believe.

    I'm late to this but Bethesda let a 3rd party port Doom and it turned out ridiculously good
