Confessions of a Call Center Gal

Confessions of a Call Center Gal
Lisa Lim

A fun chick lit that may appeal to fans of Sophie Kinsella. Bridget Jones meets The Office.
Madison Lee is a fresh college grad, ready to take on the world of print media. But she has zero luck landing a job. Unemployment is at ten percent and on the rise. Desperate and left with no other options, she accepts a position as a service rep at a call center in Pocatello, Idaho.
At the Lightning Speed call center in Spudsville, Maddy plunges into the wild and dysfunctional world of customer service where Sales is prided over Service and an eight hour shift is equivalent to eight hours of callers bashing her over the phone.
Oh sure, the calls are bad. But Maddy manages to find humor on the phone and off the phone. And with all the salacious drama behind the calls, there is never a dull moment at the Lightning Speed call center.
Lately... Maddy has been pining for her smolderingly gorgeous co-worker Mika Harket. Now things are heating up on the phone - and elsewhere. Don't hang up on this novel. Working at a call center has never been this garish... or this delightful. -Goodreads

When I was asked if I would be interested in reading this book, I was given fair warning. The humor could be hard to swallow at times, and there were a few not so friendly words used. So, what do I say . . Right up my alley! Sure.

I had absolutely no clue at what I was REALLY getting myself into, and half way through it . . I was struck with the feeling of, how do I write a review for this book?!?!

So, I'm going to give you five reasons you should read this book.

#1. "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"
"Well sir, if you did not have sexual intercourse with your wife and she's pregnant, did she have an extramarital affair or is just the Virgin Mary?"

#2. Learn to Speak Chinese in 5 minutes
1. That's not right - Sum Ting Wong
2. Are you harboring a fugitive? - Hu Yu Hai Ding
(There is a LONG list of these)

#3. "Maddy, I think you should hold off on the Fat Bastard. I just heard you talking to the toilet."

#4. "I wouldn't mind getting implants if they'd actually look natural. Heck, I don't want to end up looking like I've got David and Goliath for chesticles."

#5. "And new flash! You're no Kim Kardashian. If I were you, I'd cover up that sorry excuse for an ass. Now you take these tater tots and stuff 'em up your nonexistent, cellulite, ricotta cheese behind!"

So, there you have it. 5 AWESOME reasons to pick up this book and give it a go. Be warned, those are only 5 of the reasons I pulled from the MANY I had marked. This is a laugh out loud read, that will have people giving you strange looks if you read it in public. (Trust me, I know!)

Oh, somehow . . someway . . in all this funny, there is a little romance! Who cold ask for anything more.
