Working at call center, asking people to pay their old bills. Naturally some responded angrily.
Customer: 'So this is what you do all day? You just call people who haven't paid their bills?'
Customer: 'So if I paid my bills you'd be out of the job?'
Me: 'If everybody paid their bills, then yes.'
Customer: 'Ha ha! Good. You just fucked up by telling me this. I'm going to pay my bills right away. When you're unemployed then see how you like getting calls about your bills!'
The futility of eradicating a job that relies on the existence of poor people by making me poor escaped them.
