Bored, and took a quiz on PlayBuzz, which made me think of the #LikeAGirl video I saw on Youtube.

Here are my reults:

How Ladylike Are You?

You’re keeping it classy

You are quite the lady. There may be the occasionally embarrassing moments, but for the most part you are full of class and sophistication.

Are you happy with your lady-status? Tell us in the comments!

Overall, I strongly advocate this video. I’m a female who works in a male dominant field.  I think people should change their meaning of the phrase #LikeAGirl.  Overall, everyone shouldn’t view/use it as an insult, but more like an empowering tool.  If you’re a girl, you should be proud that you’re #LikeAGirl.  You shouldn’t be ashame of it at all.

Comcastic service disconnection

Wow, I’m not surprised. Figured something like this would happen one day.  Every company has bad apples, but this is ridiculous honestly.  It makes you wonder why the sales rep went through drastic measures so that these individuals wouldn’t cancel their internet service.

Please note: this conversation starts about 10 minutes in — by this point my wife and I are both completely flustered by the oppressiveness of the rep.

So! Last week my wife called to disconnect our service with Comcast after we switched to another provider (Astound). We were transferred to cancellations (aka “customer retention”).

The representative (name redacted) continued aggressively repeating his questions, despite the answers given, to the point where my wife became so visibly upset she handed me the phone. Overhearing the conversation, I knew this would not be very fun.

What I did not know is how oppressive this conversation would be. Within just a few minutes the representative had gotten so condescending and unhelpful I felt compelled to record the speakerphone conversation on my other phone.

This recording picks up roughly 10 minutes into the call, whereby she and I have already played along and given a myriad of reasons and explanations as to why we are canceling (which is why I simply stopped answering the rep’s repeated question — it was clear the only sufficient answer was “Okay, please don’t disconnect our service after all.”).

Please forgive the echoing and ratcheting sound, I was screwing together some speaker wires in an empty living room!

According to Geoff Schaadt, a Management Consultant, he explained that “Service reps never have insane conversations like this unless the culture of the company forces them to…I would wager that this rep’s salary is directly impacted by the number of cancellations that happen on his shift – even in situations where he is helpless to affect any change.”

It makes you wonder if Comcast will change the culture of their company rather than mindlessly firing the employee.

I love his sneakers >.< The tension rise in this scene and I got so excited! I never thought I would see so much tension on the first episode!! When the episode first started, my reaction was 'Who the hell is this guy??' He's very tall!! I need more tall people in my life.... He's one cocky sob in this scene... but I kind of like him. He's definitely different from the other characters. *runs around in  circles in excitement* OMG! He isn't afraid to express what's on his mind. So confrontational... Of course you have to admire the muscle. Main reason why I watch this anime.

I watched the second episode of Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club Second Season.  I decided to post pictures from the episode rather than rant about it.  

Long story short, I thought this was an excellent way to officially introduce the second season. I love the new guy, Sosuke Yamazakia. I can’t wait for next week’s episode.
