At one point or another I think all of us at 9to5 (dot cc) worked in a call center. Except maybe Walter. He worked at the newspaper.

Sitting in a cubicle, answering one call after another from an automated queue. Helping customers with… whatever the hell it is that customers want help with.

There are times where it almost seems like you’re doing something worthwhile. Where knowing that your handle time is way above average, knowing that there are no calls waiting on hold for more than 5 minutes.

It almost seems meaningful.

And then the caffeine wears off.

As always, please tell your friends about this comic and this website. Every time you share a post, Sophie gets another set of wings. Soon she will transcend into her final form. Which I presume is kind of a heavy-metal dark Seraph of some kind.
