repeat to fade
Third day in a row of hardcore full-time call centre drudgery. Encouragingly enough, I'm now past the half-way mark. And I did after all pass the MDes course last week. Surely this state of affairs can't go on forever... can it?
When you have to repeat the same small number of words many thousands of times, how do you stop yourself going insane? All you can really do is vary the inflection of the sentence slightly, from one call to the next. Drag the pauses out, then compact the words together, modify the phrasing, vary the pronunciation, almost imperceptively so... all the while admiring the Sam Fox flyer on the desk before me, thinking damn, that's good....
