New Job, Nervous Wreck, Strangebrew

On Monday, I’ll be reporting for my first day at my spanking brand new job. I’m rather excited, because after working two years as a Technical Customer Care Representative – okay, call center agent, happy? – I’m actually be going into a job that actually makes me go to work at normal hours, as opposed to me sleeping when everyone else is supposed to be awake and shit.


Fig 1: A fairly accurate depiction of Ade during his call center stint

But spending two years in a job that requires me to do little more than answer calls and tell some American that the reason they don’t have internet is that they fucking left their modems unplugged gives me substantial doubt in my capabilities. Number one, being in a job that requires little of you makes you rusty. And two years being rusty means I’m probably suffering from severe mental athropy. I mean, I used to be a graphic designer. Now I can’t even crop shit in Photoshop. I used to read these highfalutin theories by some communications expert. Now I spend my time trolling retarded forums and spewing the wrath of Goatse among people. And my high school thesis was best thesis back in high school, now I’m reduced to writing retarded articles peppered with swear words such as “fuck”, “shit”, “bulbol ng madre”, and “Lance Bass”.


Fig 2: Gay

I’m pretty sure I’ll spend the first few days of my new job sitting in a corner nodding constantly and giving ambigous grunts to various instructions, pretending to understand them all. Then if I convince them that I understood everything, I shall proceed with my task (writing an article) and eventually start a fire because I mistook the toaster for a printer and stuffed it with a ream of paper.

Okay, maybe I exaggerate. Maybe I won’t start a fire, just probably introduce an airborne strain of herpes into the office or some other major fuck up like that.


I know I’ll pretty much pick up the pace in a few weeks, but that still doesn’t stop me from being a nervous wreck.

Also, speaking of the alarming rate of depreciation of my IQ, I found a stash of Strangebrew videos on You Tube and I’m laughing the rest of my IQ away. Way to go Ade!


Fig 3: Erning

In conclusion: Erning is hot. Yeah.

  1. i've had similar misgivings when i started my new job about a month ago. getting back into the rat race is liable to make your stomach swirl in acid but we do it anyway (because frankly the alternative course pisses me even more)

  3. oh wow. That's exactly how I felt after resigning from Ambergarbage! I used to be both a graphic artist and a feature writer in college but after I quit call center work I was having a hard time writing and drawing. I had to relearn everything.

    Oh and Erning is hot.

    Also, I have a video of me with Ramon Bautista. And the said video aired on national TV. And I've vowed to never spread it on the net NO.

    [quote comment="119662"]Tado and Erning actually went to our place (my family's restaurant) to fool around. My relatives had no idea what was up. They thought it was for some travel show. haha

    Yeah I saw that episode. Well, techically, Stangebrew IS a travel show. A totally perverted travel show, but still.

    Bbbbut Ramon wasn’t behind Strangebrew! Wasn’t Strangebrew by R.A. Rivera?

    Wish there's still Strangebrew. However, they're kinda popular na eh kaya they won't be able to conduct those stupid and multi-directional interviews with anyone, like Strangebrew is the mostest funniest show in Earths!

    But you can catch them om "BrewRats", on Hit FM!

    [quote comment="119653"]im sure youll be fine. i also had this dilemma last november after leaving my 4-year-long call center job.

    it was scary at first but youll definitely be ok sooner that you think…

  16. Bbbbut Ramon wasn’t behind Strangebrew! Wasn’t Strangebrew by R.A. Rivera?

    No, silly :p. I wasn't referring to the man behind it. I just LOVE RAMON BAUTISTA. And his Diwata ng Novaliches/Actionman/Taonggrasa/other stupid cameo roles.

    After Tado made a successful shift to the bigger network, he just became bland, right? And Erning, ha! I always wake up late kaya I wasn't able to catch her on morning shows.

    Wish there's still Strangebrew. However, they're kinda popular na eh kaya they won't be able to conduct those stupid and multi-directional interviews with anyone, like Strangebrew is the mostest funniest show in Earths!

  19. I agree with you. And I'm starting to hate even by just looking at the cover of a SCRA (Shit Court of the Republic of Arroyo–LOLcat version) volume in my room. My grammerskillz deteriorated like wee-wee. I can't even write an editorial column ferChuckNorrissake. I'm so vectory and rastery and microphoney and… basta. No writing.
