Outsourcing Customer Service
The Truth: “Hello, my name is Mushnick Kumas Al-Akbar, but I’ve been told to tell you it’s Mark. If you can’t understand me then we’re ready to begin: First we’ll try 800 steps designed to try your patience, and then, if I haven’t cut you off, I’ll discover your warranty ran out three hours ago, and so your gizmo is as fucking useless as tits on a bull (which, along with cows, are sacred). Thank you for calling.”

After all , I never had day-glo gore-tex socks that played Elvis Presley every time I shit my diapers.

Thanks to Mike H. for the topic.

This issue’s take away: Without regulation, free markets can turn into anything but.
