    Lauren, I’m glad I am not the only one who has noticed this phenomena. What really disturbs me is how little consideration we netizens seem to have for these people.

    Lets call her “Rachel” – Working Happily
    I first encountered this poor girl over a year ago. Initially, I admired her for her cheerful outlook and I was happy to see that she had found work in a casual business where she could wear a nice polo to work in her cool blue office.

    But then I saw “Rachel” again… Sheer Terror!

    The very next time I saw her I noticed a problem. Clearly her office was built on a swamp and one side of the office is obviously sinking into the soft muck. She is still smiling, but there is a look of mad, mad, mad desperation in her eyes. She wants to work, she wants to do a good job for an employer who’s headquarters are sinking ever further into the swamp. Despite her best efforts to stay cheerful, her eyes cannot conceal the panic she clearly feels.

    We should find this woman and rescue her as soon as possible.

    Whoa, you’re right on about her crazy-eye. Somehow I have a feeling that most call center agents wear sweatpants and oversized t-shirts. I mean, that’s what I would do. But the tone in my voice would definitely border on insane.
