I am NOT having a good weekend, and it has everything to do with my job. I generally like my job, but this weekend is just... ugh.
I work at a call center, taking calls of customers who have a problem with their elevator, after which I send a technician their way. This, of course, means I have a lot of contact with both the customers and the technicians themselves. I work out of office hours, so evenings and weekends. Lately I've been scheduled to work until 23:00 (a.k.a. 11pm), which I'm fine with since I never go to sleep before 1:00 am anyway, and usually later than that.
However, on Saturday I was scheduled to start again at 09:00 am. That's only 10 hours between shifts, in which I have to get home, prepare dinner, eat dinner, sleep, get up, get ready for work, and travel to work again. That's just... not enough.
Still, I did it without complaining too much, stuff like that happens after all. It wouldn't have been so bad, however, if I didn't get all the idiots >_< Usually the vast majority of people is just normal, quickly wanting to call in a defective elevator and maybe expressing their annoyance at it a bit, that's nothing new and to be expected. But I don't think I've ever been yelled at by people for no reason as much in one day as I did Saturday :/
That's not the end of it, though. I somehow managed to get through that without yelling back at the customers. Today I'm back at work again, and I just talked to one of the technicians for a very routine thing. However, at the end of the call the line remained open for a bit longer than I intended, because I got distracted by something else work-related. I have no idea if the technician knew the line was still open... but he said 'Rhynn, you sound so horny/hot' (the word he used in my language can mean either of those, but either way it has a sexual meaning).
I really, really hope I misheard him there. I sent a mail to my supervisor asking her to listen back to the call (everything is recorded) to see if I did indeed hear what I thought I heard. I won't know the answer until at least wednesday though, since she doesn't work during the weekend and I've got my weekend on monday and tuesday :/
And if I did hear it right, I just don't even know what to do. I'm definitely not comfortable ever talking to the guy again but I don't know how possible that is >_<
I mean... I'm not naive enough to think he's the only one who might think such things; I'm a young woman and have the voice to match it, and none of them have ever seen my face so who knows what they're imagining to go along with the voice. But there's a HUGE difference between knowing they probably have those types of thoughts, and actively hearing them say it to me. I just feel violated somehow :/
