From a friends-only post of mandareevz
: And of course, the first person to call... dials the support line when she really wanted the prospects (new authors who haven't yet paid us money) line, is absolutely unintelligible, and randomly starts insulting me in her Crazy Old Woman language when I don't ask her for money. So, rather than get yelled at in Crazy Old Woman language, I forward her to Prospects and pray for someone else to take her call.
Um, except that no one else is in the Center yet, so it comes back to me in thirty seconds, and I hear (again), "Mumble mumble, fifty mumble COPYRIGHTED POEMS mumble mumble till April mumble INSTALLMENT PLAN HELLO?"
Me: "So, uh, how about one of those publication guides, huh?"
Her: "Well, I mumble mumble April mumble money INSTALLMENT PLAN!" *click*
Me: "Uh. Hello?"glomobius
