Call Center

I was feeling a bit depressed the other day, so I called the HelpHotline.
I was put through to a 'call center' in Pakistan.
I explained that I was feeling suicidal.
They were very excited at this news and wanted to know if I could drive a truck or fly an airplane...

This joke's link:

I got this from my long-time friend gbro. Regular readers are familiar with his sometimes considered, sometimes snarky comments. At the top was the name "Eric". I don't know if Eric was the guy who submitted the joke or the guy who sent it to gbro. So if you want to know who submitted the joke or who is responsible for this delicious non-PC humor, you can follow the links.

I posted it for a couple of reasons, well maybe more than a couple:

  • I thought it was rolling on the floor funny;
  • I post a lot of serious stuff about terrorism and I though this would be a nice change of pace from my usual terrorism related post;
  • Who among us has NOT called a help center and been routed to India, or Pakistan or the Phillipines or some other nation where they speak English with a musical accent and you have to ask your Technician to repeat everything at least once so that you can understand what the heck they are sayin'?
  • I'm planning on hittin' y'all later this week with a post that starts out with a somewhat outraged comment on a previous Islamofascist post, so this is my way of offsetting that.

Mujabir was applying for a job at the Dell Customer support call center in his home town in India. When he was interviewed, the HR person told Mujabir that an excellent command of English was imperative in the job they were considering him for.

"I want you to use the words 'pink', 'green' and 'yellow' in a sentence," ordered the HR person.

"No problems, replied Mujabir. "The phone goes 'green,green' and I pink it up and say, 'Yellow, this is Mujabir, how may I help you?'"

They hired him on the spot. ;)
