Call Center b/w “Centerfield”

Worst To Best Jobs with Corresponding Songs #11: Call Center

I’m not sure it was a mere coincidence that the bleakest year of my life was further blackened by the bleakest job I’ve ever had. In fact, I’m pretty sure God was playing one of His ultra-hilarious jokes on me.

It was so funny I thought I’d die—but not from laughing: by jumping into the Monongahela River in the middle of winter.

You remember the Dementors in the Harry Potter books, right? Okay.

Now think about Room 101 in the novel 1984.

I can’t make it any clearer than that. Except to finish it all off with a song I hate as much as I hated working in a call center.

Ugh. Here’s “Centerfield” by John Fogerty.
