So I've been at my current job since February now. When I applied, I thought it was just a basic investigation job (pardon the lack of details - it's a security job for an online website) but as it turns out, investigations also include calling the people you investigate.
I haven't made a call in soooo many years. Recently, I've been having to do it more often. Yesterday, I left two voice mails for these people who I needed to talk to, and told them to call me back. Well. They called me back, and I just... froze. And stared at my screen while it was going. The reason why I didn't answer? It was the morning, and I'm surrounded by a ******** rooster farm, and I don't have a headset.
I'm ridiculously self-conscious about my voice, the phone quality, and the roosters. If I just had a quiet place with a headset, I would be ALL OVER those calls. I sometimes wish living in the Philippines wasn't such a f*ckin' burden. It's even worse because my family can hear me making these phone calls, and they also work for this company except as customer support. They're always judging the department I work in for the way we handle issues. I feel like they'll really judge me if they overheard me talking to these users. Or even just make fun of me because I'm trying to sound professional over the phone when they're not even used to taking me seriously in real life.
I guess in the end, I just need to move out or find an office or something... sigh... I would use my room but guess what, I share it with my brother. And I work in the morning when he's sleeping. So I'm forced to sit in our living room, surrounded by windows (because the landlady was too cheap to cement the entire wall and just used glass panels instead), surrounded by roosters. If not for the nearby restaurants the tennis court... man. I need a ******** office.
