Racist Customer service line.

I work at an optus store, with the fancy position of sales associate. i sell phones.

now im sure we are all aware of the indians and asians and new zealanders and irish people that we all manage to get ahold of when we jump on the phone to make any form of inquiry.

I dont mind most of these people, some of them are helpful, some are idiots, and ive hung up on a few at work... In most cases i can relate to the customer and calm them down when they come in exasperated and sick of trying to understand what theyre being told.

in this case, but, wasnt going to happen.

A lady walks into the store, 40yrs old, 40 kilos overweight - easily. No shoes.

"young man everytime i jump on the phone to you guys i get a bloody indian or some stupid asian that has no idea what they are talking about. is there a special number i can call where i can get someone in australia with an australian accent? im sick of trying to understand ragheads."
Dead set. she said it. so i asked her -
"Oh i could give you the number of our RACIST customer service line if you like? that way you dont have to deal with chinks, either."
for a slpit second, she thought i was serious. then she woke up and left.

To be honest guys, when you do get an indian or something, its still in australia. its called immigration.

i love stupid people.

Interesting you bring this subject up. There was an article in either Saturday's or Friday's edition of "The Wall Street Journal" about workers at call centers in India who catch a flack.

I remember , a while back , on returning to London , though Heathrow , at one of the passport checks, was, what I assumed to be an Iranian woman, about 40 or so, very nicely rounded, and dressed from head to toe in tradition black muslim dress.(I can't remember the proper name)

I approched her, smiled , and handed her my passport, behind me a German business man said very loudly, in German, "that's what's going to happen to us, in our country soon" his colleque said "Damm immigrants"

I winced, she smiled back at me, and said, "welcome home" and wished me a pleasant holiday.

She then dealt with the two German guys.

In perfect German she said:

"Good Morning gentlemen, welcome to Great Britain, may I see your passports please"
I turned around at hearing this, the two Germans were completly flusted and embarassed.

She gave them the full passport check, entry in computer etc,
and then said, again in perfect German: "Have a pleasant stay in MY country"
I laught out a bit to loudly, she turned and beamed a beautifull smile at me.
