Jamie Vs The World
It’s been a tough week and I feel like I’m fighting everyone at the moment. I don’t like fighting, but sometimes, you just gotta take em on!
Jamie Vs Anti-Sales Tweeters
There’s been a lot of sales bashing on Twitter recently. “Had someone cold call me today, that’s a little old fashioned isn’t it?”. Listen up hacky-sack, most businesses have sales teams, including yours, and it’s a good thing they do or you wouldn’t have a salary at the end of the month. Or even better is when they start to suggest that people shouldn’t be cold calling at all and instead should be using social media to sell. Fuck off! You’re the first people to declare witch craft when someone even vaguely mentions the benefit of their products on a social platform. And what’s their solution? “Be part of the conversation and network in with people that way.” Does that sound really sneaky and underhanded to anyone else? I’d rather be cold called and know where I stand than have someone try to befriend me for future commercial gain.
Jamie Vs Taxi Drivers
Had a taxi driver tell me they didn’t want to pick me up because “The journey wasn’t long enough”. I’m sorry! How many taxi drivers do you speak to that dribble on about there not being enough money about now days and how much harder it is to earn a living! This was only second place however, in this weeks game of Fuck Head Taxi Drivers Annoying Jamie. First place goes to the little beauty that motioned in his rear view mirror while I was sitting in the back of his cab, for me to take my ipod headphones out. You see, I always put my iPod on whilst in the back of taxis, just to stop the driver trying to engage me in some form of mindless conversation about football / immigration / the old days. After noticing his signal, I thought it must be for directions or something as important. “Do you know what I hate about these foreigners?”. Are you kidding me?!?
