    As long as Horace doesn’t go on a ravenous quest for brains, we’re ok. Right?

    A great strip. Showing how total strangers have to pretend to feel sympathy for people complaining about small things is something I’ve never read in a comic strip before.

    Thank you for calling, this is Maia…

    Un-huh…. Okay… Un-huh…. Oh my… Alright, let’s take a look at this…

    Today’s strip pretty much sums up what customer service phone work will do to you. People will say things on the phone they would never say to you in person. Eventually you learn to listen for key words or phrases; everything else starts sounding like Charlie Brown’s teacher. That might sound cynical, but it helps to a) preserve the CSR’s sanity, and b) lets the CSR flip through 12 – 15 account-related screens while the caller is yapping, making the call more efficient (in theory).

    Okay, then, you have a great day.

    To call somewhere and get a person (or a horse) right away would be wonderful. It’s the 10 minutes it takes to get to a real person that makes callers hot under the collar.

    Gee, I never realized Horace was left-hoofed.
