We would always escalate Male Chauvanist Pigs like the caller here to one of our female sups on purpose. It usually got the point across... but I like Kestrel's method better.

That is yet another reason why I love this comic...Kestrel truly is an awesome woman...she deserves medals and lots of kindness for all the HORSESHIT she has to put up with..

yep...I'm rambling.

2 things here

We have a classic one-liner comic that I sure LOVED on this one: You have a GOOD DAY-

-asshole...


And we have a classic 1950 hair style in the sixth panel being transformed to a gothic tern red-like hair as the word asshole got out of her mouth...

Wich was sublime Aeire! And while Kestrel was getting more and more girly I didn't even noticed the transformation (as the guy was on the other side of the phoneline) until the last panel emerged... Nice comic as always!

That couldn't have been a real man. A real man wouldn't have asked for help in the first place :)

I agree... I don't call tech support until smoke is pouring out of the CPU... and even then only if the first spray of ABC Chemical Retardant doesn't work...

Good point.

Personally, I just find the sixth panel damn scary... anything that cute and flowery just has ot be seriously evil....

Let's face it, 90% of the callers to tech support of any kind would not have been recruited by The Manhattan Project as test dummies.

I've actually had a few days where, if it weren't for being in debt, I'd have ripped the phone out of the wall, thrown it through the window and sent a nice short "I quit" email to the boss, and walked out the door.

Happy smiley Kestrel scares me more than angry Aubrey in S*P does..

and the tech support thing.. yeah.. I'd probably get fired for yelling at stupid people and/or telling them to do things that screw up thier stuff even more because they're obviously too dumb to ever figure it out.

Tech support must be a stressful job for that reason - you're not allowed to bite the hand that feeds you.

Hi everyone, it's my first time posting here, and I just wanted to say how much I love the comic.

It was amusing, as always, watching Kestrel suck that patronizing asshole in with the sweet & naive act, and then stomp all over his assumptions.



However, for a second, I kinda thought the comic was going to twist in another direction when he said "you can't handle THIS problem".
I was thinking the guy had some trouble ordering pay per view porn or something, and was just embarrased about talking to a woman about it.

It would have been quite funny if, after dragging his problem out of the guy, it turned out to he was trying to get some hardcore tentacle-hentai that Kestrel had seen, and she critiqued it for him just to blow his mind. :D :oops:

That reminded me of the time I worked as a directory assistance operator for a phone company... gah!

Loved the facial transformation, you could almost hear the bubbles come through the speech.

Thanks, I think I'll tentatively take that as a compliment. :wink:

Problem with the fact that you are human necro? Everybody think things like that one time or another... If you don't, you should really consider getting checked by a profesionnal!

I LOVE these last three strips

Postby Anathae on Thu Mar 25, 2004 11:46 pm

Love these ones, I work at a call center that takes cable internet support calls for a major US provider.

I can so identify... specially being a pagan, lol.

Heard of Freaks, can't say if I've seen it though. I'd have to see it again to be certain.
