[Local GBG Update]

Here's an update that primarily relates to those in and around Gothenburg, Sweden.

Namely: Händer i GBG

It started as a group on facebook to track and update people of events that's happening in and around Gothenburg during the week.

And now they've started up their own site.

So, interested in what's going on in and about GBG?
Then you should use this site for plans!

Follow the link up there over to their site and take a look and make your plans for the coming week!

[disclaimer: While my blog is in English, their site is in Swedish, since they primarily target themselves towards Gothenburg's populace]

Story of a Customer Service rep; Part 5

Here's another update to my small series of customer encounters.

Tonight, I had a customer call in and was absolutely furious over the fact that her phone hadn't worked while she was traveling abroad.

She had been promised that it would work just fine and dandy.
And now she was going abroad for a week again come Monday morning, so she demanded that I abso-fracking-lutely made 120% sure that her phone would work.

I took a quick look at her subscription and concluded within 30 seconds that the reason for it not working, was because the subscription was barred from usage abroad.

I informed her of this and explained that I had fixed it so her phone would work just fine from now on, and then went on and briefed her on what to expect in the way of costs and such when traveling abroad and bringing your phone with you.

But, here's the kicker: She had herself barred her subscription by using the customer login on the MPO's homepage.

Nothing is quite as infuriating as when you get blamed for something that is the customers fault.
That's the inherent risk of this line of work, you've got to get some pretty thick skin on your mind, or you'll go insane(more or less) or quit within the first 12 months of working.

Axent Wear - Music, redesigned

This, I so want to get my hands on a pair of these.
Shamefully picked from their website, if AW reads this, hope you don't mind!
Lemme know if you do!

As soon as that kickstarter goes live, I'm getting in on the action ASAP.
I'll post an update about it as soon as I know it's online.

Moonlit Blvd - psychgoth

More music!

This ones kinda fitting my mood this afternoon..

From talented psychgoth and well, I can't describe it better then psych did:

"This song started out as a longing for a piece of music to fit the serene mood as I walked down the street at 3AM. The idea actually came to me when I noticed all I saw were hues of blues, greys, and blacks. Colors translate into sounds when I try for some reason"

It just feels so fitting, pulling it up and playing it when on your way home a dusky night.
Just feeling the serenity wash over you.

Quick update, before I'm going for some beer(maybe) and socializing with great people!

Over and out~
