Yep, that's right. GameMaster is back to work. I am again doing inside sales via telephone for another milwaukeee-based non-profit arts-orginization (read: I telemarket for the Milwaukee Rep). I start training on Monday, and I'll be calling you at dinner by the week after. Any Questions?

What's a bumb? Is that anything like being a bum? Or is this some strange, new class of lazy layabout that I've been unaware of?

Or am I just pointing out typos because I'm bored?

Nice, Dualg... and congrats on finding work again, GM. I'm sure this will make you feel better knowing that Sanja doesn't think you're a 'bumb', eh?

Heehee.

Great find dual... but it NON-PROF.... Read the law linked to by the script. Non-profit groups are exempt, but as a courtesy do keep a DNC and TOL list.

Other than that, none of those questions would send me through a loop, been doing this too long.

Yeah, I meant Bum, and thanks for the correction Roach. And yes, your just pointing out typos (mispellings) because your board.

TT, Sanja knew that I left my last job and why... She didn't know how long, and knew I was looking.

Go ahead and say what you will about telemarketers, but the sell rate for the Rep is about 10% of the people contacted. The symphonies was much higher, but that was then. If people didn't want us calling, they wouldn't buy so easliy... Granted you do get a couple people who try silly stuff like that spike, but after doing it a little while you figgure out how to handle them as well.

what? This should be placed in the Ask Zorro thread, but since it is one of my threads.... I guess I will answer it this way:
The thing. Thats what. Got a problem with that? Wanna take this outside? (see these also belong in the Ask Zorro thread.)

I took the iniative and decided to find the meaning of this oh so very elusive word "BumB". First I consulted my walking, talking dictionary, my english teacher. She didn't know. Then I went to the bookshelf in my room, pulled out the Oxford dictionary...nope, not there either. The closest I got was "bumbag-small pouch worn around waist"(ppl can't be worn around the waist so this is not it) Then I went to a local chatroom and told ppl I no longer was a bumb...everybody thought of me as>>> A LOSER NO MORE.
so, I give up. sorry...
