    People who are 20+ and don't have a drivers license because 'they don't need it'. Yet the are constantly getting rides off their parents and friends.
  2. Forum Ad Advertisement

  3. I think that's a top shout. It really does my head in. They normally seem to strike when the football is on as well, and therefore I struggle to give them the time of day. I feel sorry for them in a way - they feel that they must promote their religion.

    If people wanted to be that religion, people would come and find their church.

    This will probably only make sense to Dublin posters but I can't stand that Omar kid who's always ringing up and getting through to every competition they have on the Strawberry Alarmclock.
  5. Ah, but Mrs SHRLFC has long since changed jobs, cockle. ;)

    She now works for a company called Telewest, ringing existing customers looking to save them money. Well paid job as well.

    My exact problem with telesales calls, Sambad, is this:

    In England, renting or buying office space is very expensive. In addition to a team needed to make the calls, with English mimimum wage the cost of having a telesales team and premises builds up.

    So, companies like the Carphone Warehouse, for example, outsource their telesales to places like India and Pakistan. The wages are cheaper, buildings are cheaper to rent... but the people who ring you can't understand a word you say! Here is an example of a call from one of these companies:

    Dan: Hello?

    TS: Is that Mr Thomas?

    Dan: I'm afraid he isn't in at the moment.

    TS: Am I speaking to friend or family member?

    Dan: (always thinking about lying, occasionally doing so) Yes.

    TS: It's Mark (more like Mohammed) calling from The Warephone Carhouse. Your number has been selected for our special offer. You're going to get a Nokia XXXX with XXX free minutes and XXX free texts.

    Dan: I don't want it thank you, I work for o2. They can beat any offer you make. (So what? I know I don't work for them anymore. It fends these people off. Although today my new one was that I was only 16 - that got them running for the hills.)

    TS: You're going to get a Nokia XXXX with XXX free minutes and XXX free texts.

    Dan: But I work for a mobile phone company.

    TS: You're going to get a Nokia XXXX with XXX free minutes and XXX free texts.

    Dan: Sorry, I have a driving lesson, I have to go. *phone down*

    It's really, really hard to be polite to them because they shouldn't be ringing you if they can't speak your language. It's easy to be nice to the English people, because you can just say no, sorry, blah blah blah, but.... :%#%#: :%#%#:

    -The fact that Willie Mason has a newspaper collum... The guy can barely read, so who the hell is his ghost writer?

    Seriously though, he's a good player, and I love watching him bash the Maroons around when he's in the mighty sky blue, but he's not a smart man...
  17. My age has nothing to do with it :p I know good a collum when i read one :p
