My First Time

Well I did it!  The company I had left the voice mail for called me back on Monday and within two days I had a contract and training manual and was ready for business.  There were only two things that I wasn’t prepared for, other than the obvious.  Most, if not all, companies require that you use a headset with a corded phone.  And despite popular belief, most corded phones do not accomodate headsets.  So I spent all Wednesday running around trying to find an adapter for my headset.  Once all was said and done, it was time for the show to begin!  And what a show it was!  To be honest, most of the clients started out really nice.  I say started out, because at the core of every human is a sexual being and the preferences vary as much as personalities.  There were a couple of moments that started leaning towards the illegal.  Luckily I work with a company that has rules so I can steer clients away from certain topics.  Some companies are what’s called “No Taboo” which basically means anything goes.  And I do mean anything!  Before taking my first call I was so nervous!  I didn’t have any idea what to expect, and I don’t think there’s any way to describe it.  I was so shaky I thought for sure my voice would give me away, but it didn’t take long before I found a rythm (no pun intended).
