Sony SignUp

Biggest Loser!! Aka... Me :/

So I participated with my company in the Biggest Loser / Sony promotion thing. Here's how it worked:

When someone called in to vote on the show The Biggest Loser, they would vote and then after they would hear a voice say something like, "Press 1 now to find out about how you can save on [Blu Ray player, Digital Camera or EBook]". Then the person pressed 1 and it rang and someone in my building answered. I was there from 6 till 11:30 after a full 8-5 shift... it was crazy. Unfortunately for me, they had some technical difficulties and my line was malfunctioning and when people called in I couldn't hear them; silent calls. So they had me log off after a while but didn't tell me to leave, so i hung around and talked to all the other reps and it became like a big party for me. It was okay. I got payed overtime and a $35 bonus, so all is well. It was fun.

Business as Usual
So it's Wednesday. That means that i have 2 more days of training and then on Monday, i "Hit the floor"... "Go live"... aka get in my cubicle and start taking calls and racking in the commission. This and last week have been intense systems training. I'm pretty confident that I'll be okay because I'm learning quick enough that the teacher is having me go around and help people. Makes me feel good.

Being Wednesday also means that i work at Albertson's from 6-11. That will most likely be my forever Wednesday deal. I can do that once a week, but i wouldn't do any more than that.

Building Inventory
So Circuit City is kaput. Sad them. I went there during their final week and bought myself a pack of blank DVD's and a medium sized DVD case. Last night Clark let us come over and finish watching the last Matrix with him and i burned all 5 Harry Potters and Transformers. I'm excited. I've already bought some movies, but i don't think I'll do that anymore :D
