People suck. I hate everybody. (But not you.)

Last week was a four-day work week for me.
But, I ended up working with three different talk hosts.
And the audience was especially mean and nasty.

Really.  It takes pushing one button to change a radio station or turn the radio off if people don't like what they're hearing.  It takes SEVEN buttons to call the studio and bitch at me over something that's not my responsibility.
Why must they work so hard to be awful?

It was the longest week I ever worked.

I really don't wanna go back.
Really.  Really.  Really.

People suck.
I hate everybody.

Yeah, there is a lot of anger out there, Roses.

And what is stunning to me is that people bitch so much about a free product. I mean, it's not like your cell phone service is out, or your iron lung failed.

It's a friggin' free product that can easily be ignored. Like you said...push the button, and LEAVE!

I'm alsways amazed at the people who call radio shows to say they think to host is wrong. Do they really think that's going to achieve any thing?

Sorry you had to deal with it.

Well, to be fair, it only takes one button if they have you on speed dial... ;)

I know, I'm not helping...

Andy said...

Nyuk! Leave it to Thumper...

I laughed. It is all about perspective. Folks don't seem to have much of that lately.

In particular, folks are in deep serious hurt in places like Egypt. And people here are going to be nasty???

Bet half of those you talked to didn't even have the facts straight.

Talk show host did his job by stirrin the puddin up and you had to deal with the 'ee-dee-tots'.

An intelligent person doesn't argue with the phone screener. He knows that if he does he won't get to talk to the "big mouth" on the radio.

Hope your ear is O-tay ... because we all know your ego is damage proof against "Stupids".
