Do you have to be on the crazy side to work customer service? Or does that job make you crazy?
I can't see how people stay in these jobs. I think they must be crazy. Or maybe working that job can turn people crazy. Crazy customer service associates. It makes sense.

...its a low paying job for "lower tiered" workers. That may sound rough on the edges, but I can't think of any other way to get my point across to you. Keep looking to find a better job.
