Reeeeeeeeeeeintroducing myself (actually, I have never, ever

Postby E_Irizarry » Thu Mar 10, 2011 3:41 am

, ever formally introduced myself here, but here we go:

I'm back in NYC, and I had a call-center job only paying $10.00/hr. in lower Manhattan from Octo. 18th 2010 until 2 weeks ago. I just found out that via "Elevate America" program that Microsoft had given away 8,100 free vouchers of free, advanced I.T. training for residents of NYS and NYC to be trained in Manhattan.

I was fuckin' stuck in Texas @ that time so even if I were to know about it back then, I wouldn't have been able to acquire one.

So yeah, I had been laid off because I had a few fat, sassy nigglet women that didn't like me made up a bunch of false accusations and went all the way up to corporate that even the CEO didn't know had gone up that far past his chain of command hierarchal ladder(Hey DJFourMoney, Aozora, SSJ Parris, et. al. whom it may apply to - Damn right I used that word because there's too much rambunctiousness, indignation, and no self-accountability in the Black American diaspora (even most Africans frown upon Blacks and some of the Africans have "ultraviolet"-dark skin - but I have a ran into a nigglet whom was a NuyoRican male traffic NYPD cop that wore the shoe, too - I'll get to his faggaety ass in a minute).

So the morning that I was fired, I was called into the office by my supervisor whom looks like a cross between a young Grady (from Sandford & Son), actors Terrance Howard & Michael Ealy, and Chris Jasper-looking simp formerly of The Isley Brothers/Isley Jasper Isley. He, the supervisor, told me that the CEO wants me to see him in the office (even though I had voluntarily gone to the CEO's office disclosing to the CEO that I'm stressed and to please give me good referral for another job (which he had agreed @ the time) - yes I had tried to build rapport with the CEO, but he always switched his disposition about me every time I had gone into the office to see him (which would be every two to three weeks)).

And the truth is, the CEO always called me Shawn, which is not my fcukin' name. I mean, I really look like like a nigglet to him? What Latino do you know that has the name Sean/Shawn???

And the company has 400 employees, 96 percent whom are Black American (yeah you already know where this is yielding out as), and about 90 percent of them are women - so you do the "math" (and "logic"). It is a call center, and I was a customer svc. representative.

People would dress like Method Man in the movie Belly....the females sounded ghetto as all-get-out cluckin' on the phones, talking about milking their baby daddy's for alimony. Think of their tone of voice that they would sound like Mary J. Blige mixed with Fantasia mixed with ___________ *put any Black American woman in the blank here*.

Back to the CEO, so when I sat down he told me the following, "Sean, (even though on paper in front of him was my real name as I have seen), there's a lot going on with you, okay? First of all, it has been reported by three people that there is a problem with your flatulence. Have you been flagellating while on the production floor?"

Mind you, I could have argued about how insignificant of a question that is, but I didn't want to seem niggerish. Therefore, I had answered (mind you, I had my proper voice that I used 98 percent of the time I was there on the job), "That sounds preposterous! I haven't done that, *CEO's first name*."

Then co-secretary some White woman was trembling when I was in the room, I'm 6'3 @ 280 lbs. so I intimidate even fat oversized bombee Americans. And I sounded "White", still she was nervous. WTF.

Then next, the White woman in the CEO's office said, "Mr. ______, have you said that *my supervisor's name* was catering to the females on the team?"

Not ONCE was my performance discussed as an issue. When I had taken the Wonderlic IQ assessment for that customer service job, I had scored in the top 30 percentile of people of the whole world whom had taken it. You would think that they would have taken that into consideration.

And here's the doosie: don't you guys here on Happier Abroad know -- that the fourth and final accusation was that I was in the elevator shaft yelling "I'm going to kill every body here!". WTF. Even DURING THE "EXIT" INTERVIEW I had wholeheartedly relaxedly stated that I haven't done that because that violates the Patriot Act as a threat an act of terrorism."

"Well we here at ____________ have to terminate you, Mr. ___________."

"Okay. I will be more than happy to pick up my check this Friday (the day this "firing of me" was going on was on a Tuesday)"

"Sorry we cannot allow that nor can you go back to your desk because it would become a dangerous situation."

"The only thing that would be dangerous is what they are capable of physically doing to me. It's ironic that when I had made a grievance about a sassy Black woman to the Black female supervisor of the call center group team that she was on was complaining that I had made flatulence pointing her fingers in my face, that the Black female supervisor ran back and told the culprit that IIIIIIIIIIII was the one that had filed the complaint. However, when the fingers were pointed at me, everybody remains anonymous, and I'm being ousted out the door."
(The supervisor simp brought my belongings back to me while I was in the office)

"Well, I'm sorry, _______. You are not longer employed by us. Your checks will be mailed to your address on file and here's my card in case you don't receive your money's. I will have Mrs. ____ [the White woman that was trembling in the office while she was taking notes doc'ing what I had to say about all the accusations] escort you to the elevator". (????)

So when she did that, I was no where near her nor did she seem ubernervous when she said "Goodbye. Have a nice daY" as I have gotten onto the elevator to left the grounds once and for all.

By the way, I just received my 2nd of two checks after i had been fired as I was supposed to receive.

I'm going to talk about the pendejo/asshole NuyoRican officer at the public assistance office in the next segment.

Welcome to the one-way street HELL that is corporate America. It's only going to go downhill from here. Is it really worth sticking around to witness it? Escape the prison of American crap jobs and find your freedom in another country. I've been treated the same or worse in plenty of jobs here in America, but never once overseas. Bottom line: in America most people take themselves WAY too seriously and have an over-inflated sense of self-worth. So the peons have it lorded over them by morons who are lucky enough to rise to the top or any perceived position of "authority". Most of this boils down to sheer terror over job loss and losing their piece of the "American wet-dream". Just take a look at the extremely bloated bureaucracy that is our US government. Mostly sycophant wannabes, riding on someone else's coattails, or given a low-paying piss-ant job (like TSA idiots), where they feel they can push people around.

Thanks, Red Dog, for your response.

I already knew that. I just wanted people to respect principle and not take me as a threat and to value me as a cool, virtuous dude. That's all I ever wanted out of the whole thing.

But I think that you maybe missing something: these Black American female peonesses are "protected" thus creating a ghetto corp[-se] job enDIEronment (Corpse that people seem dead from working OT for peanuts all the time & that it's a dead-end job and to most of them, the best job that they ever will have).

But the more I go through the re-learning of this post-expatriate-return-to-Satan's playground called America, the more I'm locking myself
into realizing that I need to do what the hell I need to do in order to get the hell up out of here for good.

I went to a lot of countries, but they weren't for me. I was too busy looking for the country for me, and I had ran
out of money.

I will go back abroad again. Good thing I do not have a jail nor prison record :idea:

Maybe it's a little Pollyanna of me, but I've kinda come to the realization that once you find the country that "speaks to you" and treats you well, all you need to do is find your niche and be happy. You don't have to be rich, just content with being in your niche, where you're respected and you can make friends. Teaching English overseas is always an option, and I've done it without a degree and with a degree. I'm still looking for the country that "speaks to me", since many do in some ways but not in enough ways to make it the right place. I'm also still too eager to keep wandering around and seeing things to settle down yet. You'll find your place in the sun and you'll have the vantage point to tell the rest of the world to get lost and you just won't care anymore. I keep telling my wife (half jokingly), that if they open up Cuba to us Americans again, I want to go down there and open up a tiki bar on the beach. I'll just have a nice little concrete structure house (hurricane-proof) and get up with the sun and open up and start serving beers and cocktails at 10am.

E_Irizarry,

That really sucks man. I have been in a similar situation which I was partially but not fully at fault at in the past. One incident was with a women (government) who because she did not see my expression as caring decided to let me go. This was referring to backing up information and because a team leader did told me something wrong, I backed up incorrectly and they were afraid it corrupted but it did not.

Next job was with a contractor and I basically was not fit for the job and they were somewhat reasonable although I was let go after the trial period.

Now, I am in a similar situation. Most of the people working in a call center (contractor, govt for IT) are majority black. I just cannot stand when black Americans screw others to get ahead. I have seen a new guy who had been working 2 months before me at the year end get a shift lead position because he kept kissing but.

E, I would say go abroad because right now, I am thinking the same thing. I am currently trying to interview to do a traineeship in Vienna, Austria. I am trying to go all the way to Australia (most members see that is a red country) It is but good for relationships and less of work to die society than America. I would say if you are good in IT and are bilingual you should to look for work in that area.

America is dying and it is better getting out before it is too late.

@aorzora13,

Yeah watch your ass and act feminine at that call center job. You'll still retain it!! Don't stare at their arses too much and Black women are notorious for having too much ass (mind you let's not speak upon their faces and/or waists. LMAOLOLAOLAOL)

I will look for work in that area (thanks dude).

However, I realized that in the IT field that's not inter-industry based, I fare better because it's about me only working with men (whether they'd be White and/or Asian and/or Latino-American).

I would never work in the I.T. field in health care or accounting, because we all which types of people lurk there: pompous deluded vociferous Black American women and their "eduamacated" Black American yes-men simps that co-sign each and everything in hopes to get some p***y.

Don't sleep on Black Am simpish men that dress up in a suit and tie that are charlatans or "hood corporate": they will shit on another man regardless of race just so he can keep the p***y on lock in the office. This shit is sick.

Dam man I feel you.

Since HS I've been working various odd jobs anywhere from 6 months to 5 years, the average about 2 years. But when you make only $10.05 an hour, you can't do anything you're stuck unless you make demands on your time or change up what your doing. I choose to change it up instead of stressing about 8 hours of work, having to study 4-6 hours a night, rinse and repeat as needed.

The solution is to go overseas as you have found.

Thanks for sharing. Did you ever consider teaching? If that sort of job might interest you, there's a handful of countries, some decent happier abroad destinations, where you could make at least US$10 per hour if not a lot more. With teaching, there's a lot less office BS involved. If the students like you, school is usually happy. Thus, it boils more down to your personality and how well you click with your classes. These could be children or adults, or both. It depends on what type of teaching you apply for.

If you get a regular company job, office politics can suck anywhere in the world. Its a lot more company and industry specific. Some places of work are a lot more benign than others. Depends a lot on management, colleagues, and the general corporate culture. Of course, the chances of finding a genuinely friendly company to work in are much better in some countries than others.

Hope you will use this turn in your life as a catalyst to move overseas to give the destination of your choice a full shot.

Yeah I had instructed English [to students (LOL yeah I had forgotten to put that here lol] in Chile, and because the students were happy, I still had a job. As much as I detested working for bullshit money (even in Chile, I was only making $150,000 CLP which is even bullshit for Chile whereas the average Chilean mades 500K annually) -- So I had left because I didn't get the work visa as the American-company in Chile had promised. Yup got jipped, but oh welps -- Chile wasn't all that but it was alright.

On the other hand, I actually look forward to getting back into that and/or staying in I.T. even in the abroad country.
It's good that all the advise you guys have given me coincides with what I already know. Hence meaning I'm on the right track.

I don't know you guys like that, but thanks for the love - a moist no-homo (i.e. nothing homosexual here, fellas LMAO!).

I wasn't a teacher, I worked in companies.

But teaching is the default job for Anglos (and even some non-Anglo westerners) in places like Taiwan, Korea, China, Japan, and to some extent even Thailand. So I've had many friends who taught in Asia and have a general idea of how it works, both with children and adults.

It's good that all the advise you guys have given me coincides with what I already know. Hence meaning I'm on the right track.

I don't know you guys like that, but thanks for the love - a moist no-homo (i.e. nothing homosexual here, fellas LMAO!).


You had instructed or you taught?


Am I compromising my proper English by saying instructed in lieu of taught? Or there is at least one difference between the two words?


Oh, my bad. Thought the question was for me and now on the re-read, I see it was directed at E_Irizarry.

I think standard English would be "I taught English in Chile" or possibly "I instructed students in English while in Chile". But don't worry too much about perfect writing. A lot of people, in Asia at least, just want a native English speaker to practice conversation with more than anything else. At a cram school, if you get the class talking and keep everyone entertained, you should do fine.

BTW, E_Irizarry, do you speak fluent Porto? If so, perhaps you should head straight to Brazil. Some expats manage to find real jobs there these days. English teaching might be doable there as well.
