"Customer Service, how may I help you?"

The telephone is a good way to talk to people without having to offer them a drink.
~Fran Lebowitz~

You know how when you call a customer hotline, and how the customer care officers are always polite and nice to you no matter what silly things you say or what stupid questions you ask them? Sometimes I'd imagine that after I hang up, they'd turn to their colleagues and say "Hey, guess what? I just got off the phone with this dumbass customer who asked the dumbest questions ever." And then they'd gossip about me all day long about what an idiot I was for asking those stupid questions and I'd be the laughing stock of the day. And then when they go home, they'd tell their friends/gf/bf/spouse/family something along the lines of  "Today at work, I had this crazy customer who called, and she was such an idiot etc.etc.etc. - can you even believe it - she didn't even know etc.etc.etc!! You couldn't ever begin to imagine not knowing such things etc.etc.etc," and then, just like that, my idiocy would turn into one of their everyday conversations about work.

The only comfort I have is knowing that they would never see my face and the next day, I'd become just another anonymous customer.

You guessed it. I just got off the phone with one of Singtel's customer care officers, and I'm embarassed as hell. Don't ask.

I tried uploading more screen shots of the game Machinarium - the game is sooooooo damn cute that I couldn't help but share them here - but there was something wrong with the stupid internet connection and I couldn't upload them, and I'm just too lazy to try now. Maybe next time.

I usually have lots and lots and lots I want to blog about during the day, and I give myself silent reminders about it, but everytime when I come home, it always slips my mind, and hence, my lack of blog posts.

Oh, I remember now. It's something about authors and books. Also about my new iPod Touch that just arrived a few days ago. Even took photos of it.

But I'm waaaay too lazy to do that now, I'll just leave it for next time.

Nights.
