  This is Goodbye.

655 posts, 2 years, 7 months, 3 days-I've had enough...

If you might not have gathered from reading the end of "The Malfunction", I am not going to blog anymore about the call center. I'm not deleting the blog, there's too much of my heart and soul in this place. There will be bad call centers, bad bosses, and certainly bad customers, around long after I leave my call center, so someone may enjoy reading it. I will still answer emails and comments,(not so quickly though). I'm leaving the blogroll up for now, and I will be glad to link to anyone who links to me. If you liked Call Center Purgatory, I've created a Cafe Press Store, click the post title link above to get to the store.

I'm ready to live life, and there's no room for Call Center Purgatory anymore. It takes too much time, and has become counter productive. Check back from time to time, or keep an eye out on Technorati. I will let you know when I finally leave the call center, and I may give you some actual details about who I am and where I worked.

There are so many of you that have been very kind and gracious to me. I could not begin to name all of the wonderful people who have commented, emailed or linked to me. I care for many of you like dear friends who I have known for years.

Thanks for reading,

I really mean that.

Your Friend,

Hi AC -

Although I'll miss your posts about life in the call centre, I'm glad you have (finally) come to a decision & wish you the best for your future endeavours.

I really do enjoy your writing & insights on life, so it would be great if you could continue to put down your thoughts. Perhaps, after a while, you could just change your blog title to something more appropriate to your new direction in life? Otherwise, start a new blog.

All the best for the future - I'm sure you have made a wise decsion.


Thanks Scott.

I understand the life in a call center, being in the industry for 2.5 years.

I had to take a break for my mental health. I am currently trying to find other work.

The pressure, depression and insanity one has to go through just to make an above minimum wage job is the core experience of a call center employee.

Not worth it. Maybe you can pursue a career in journalism or writing. I hope you never have to go back to a call center job again.

Best of luck to you.

Thanks, Leslie.
My favourites list won't be then same without you.Good luck in whatever you choose to do and if you ever get the blogging urge back drop by jam butties and let me know and I'll put a link up.
Thanks, Jammy.
I will miss you. I hope you change your mind and still post from time to time.
Thanks Miki...
You'll definitely be missed, AC. :(

Thanks for the posts, and for keeping the site up. You will be missed...
Thanks, Ann.
Thanks for your writing. I have been taking calls in my personal hell of a call center since March '05 and I want so bad to get another job. Without getting on a rant of my own I just want to wish you the best and I look forward to one last post updating all of us on your release from purgatory. All the best....
Thanks, Luke.

Good luck AC!

Thanks for keeping me blogging, if you hadn't answered that post those few years ago I probably would have stopped!
Thanks,Geistx. Glad to see you are still at it.

RIP CCP! You will be missed. James
I have been away for awhile and just now getting back to my old "friends". I wish you the best and really hope that you find something that fulfills both your spirit and your wallet. Your talents are sorely wasted in a CC.

All the best and more!

Thanks, ~j

it was a great experience all the same, it may have been the choice to make or break oneself.. but at the end.. i hmm.. dunno what's at the end tho.. but thanks for sharing AC.. you will be missed...

Thanks Velvet.
Enjoy A God Blessed
I hope you'll be happy with your new life. Again, Thanks for sharing your experiences in a call center industry. You are a great writer.
