i dont work in the old st center, i work across the road in featherstone st. it's pretty chilled in there, i get the impression the old st branch from what i've heard is a bit more full on.
The main building is pretty intense. Believe it or not I worked there twice, the first time on b2b, I don't think they do that any more.
Couldn't handle it for very long either time, there's something about those sort of places that really gets me down. If I'm going to spend a lot of time on the phone, I want to dial the numbers myself...
I flog bird tables.
And I'm thankful you do. I've got binoculars now!!!!!!! I'm going to watch the fuck outta some birds fairly soon.

Nothing wrong with be quiet. It's not the way get ahead in business. I used to be like that before I started this job. I found recruitment consultants insufferable till I started barking orders at them.
The title actually has 'customer' at the start, but considering I'm in the public sector, and don't handle any money, I never use the 'c' word (well, not that one anyway).
