Hmm, ouch. That can be annoying, when you're trying to communicate technical information. That's one of the reasons I've sworn never to buy HP products anymore, since they shipped their customer support off to a bunch of incompetents in India. It's not just the accent but the fact that several people I've known have had to deal with people who clearly don't fully understand the English language fluently. That's a bit of a problem.
I'm sure I'll be down that way, at some point. I'm still working on the cold memorization and getting my delivery down solid, though. I'll be ready to take it on the road once I feel that I've achieved at least a semi-professional product. Got the material; need the polish.
Ohhhhhhhh. I hadn't even figured out that that's what you meant, when I posted the link. That was just random. I must be psychotic psychic.
There are plenty of other jobs out there which involve little effort. I thought about looking into courier work, before I got involved with I.T. work. I just had no idea where to begin with something like that.
Anyway, it's all just to pay the bills, while I work on something meaningful. I'm trying to get to the point of being able to make a living with the standup comedy and the writing.
An address of where I was in Charlotte? Or an address of the company I work for?
I'd have to check my GPS history. I think it was 2 or 3 miles from the intersection of 77 and 85. I can't remember exactly. I was kind of on auto-pilot on my way back out of the city.
I mean, it's actually skilled labor, what I do. Need a four year degree or a bunch of IT certifications. It's just spaced out a bit, since I do work-from-home support. The last two weeks were kind of an extreme case, admittedly. Usually, I stay within an hour of HQ (the office I'm based out of).
No problem. I was down there last week, on Thursday, but I didn't exactly get a good look around the place. It was just a tech support run for one of our work-from-home people, out of the Charlotte office.
For some reason, all of the work-from-home support is run out of the Chapel Hill office, but I can't complain. I had three 8-hour days last week, which each involved about 2 hours of actual work ... one in Wilmington, one in Charlotte, and one in Winston-Salem.
