Oh, the things they say about us in Indian call centers. About Americans, about Australians — it's terribly insulting stuff. It's also kinda true!
"Australia is known as the dumbest continent," says the "culture" instructor who trained a Mother Jones contributor cum customer service operator.
"Literally, college was unknown there until recently. So speak slowly."
"If you call on a Friday night, they'll be smashed—every time. Oh, and don't attempt to make small talk with them about their pets, okay? They can be quite touchy about animals... Just stating facts, guys."
Ha ha. Well, the Aussies really do tend toward drunken buffoonery, really, just ask any global touris…
"America? I'll tell you about America"
Hey, wait a minute!
"Truth is, 90 percent of the people there, you will find, they'll do the most stupid things, impulsive things… In training they told us, 'It's easy. These guys have the money, they just don't want to pay.' They told us, 'Threaten their credit score, Americans can't live without good credit...'"
"Americans will just shout at you," Sube said. Mittu agreed: "I have only been cursed by Americans. "
OMG, racist slander! I fucking demand to speak with your supervisor, young man! Hello? Hello?!?!
