Boycott Outsourcing and Maybe it Will Go Away

SCREAM!! I’m mad as hell and I am simply NOT going to take it anymore.

Take what?

Take talking to some misguided soul on the other end of the phone with a thick accent, who I can’t understand worth squat, who reels off the party platform, “Thakyouverrrrymuch, Ms.Donovan. Yes, please, canyouhold,thankyou….” and it’s all fake, and it’s all canned, and it’s all making me MAD.

Okay, so here’s what I’ve decided to do, and in fact, I did it this afternoon. Phone rang. One of those numbers you know is a bill collector. Picked it up.

“Hello”

“Hello, is this Ms. Donovan?”

“Where are you from?”

“India.”

“Nothing personal,” I said. “But when your company can get me someone from America to talk with, then I’ll deal with you. Good bye.”

Click.

So, friends, the theory is, the more the merrier. I ask you to join me in my jaunt down boycott lane: BRING IT BACK TO USA!
