By dint of making up little sheets with times written down so I could cross off the time that had already passed and see how much time there was remaining, diligent gossiping, and random writing, I made it through the shift. I didn't get told that I was going to hell, and I only got cussed at the once. No bad Do Not Call List morons (someone is only a Do Not Call List moron if they will not listen to/believe the fact that phone research can call any bloody where they please, pretty much, except cellphones, where we apologize & hang up) and ... not much else. People were at church or leaving for same.
Another day, another $8.50 + $0.50 weekend bonus an hour.
