As the year’s madness continues, I continue to try and be optimistic about things. I’ve also noticed more timewasters across the board and I’m so glad not to be so desperate for money that I consider entertaining them on the phone.
Of course, I’m not going to say how my screening method works – that would be silly, but I am thankful to have been in this job long enough to be 90% sure of genuine callers.
If people have got more time on their hands then I think it’s natural for a surge in stupid behaviour which I why I am thankful that I can be so picky. Holiday times usually bring out the silly people, although not every caller is a timewaster, so I just continue to answer my phone regardless.
As the year draws to an end, I can’t see it improving much with the local lockdowns and such. We just have to hope next year will be better.
