I’m in for it: Now I get to deal with the actual audience on a daily basis instead of just calling people, which is what I’ve been doing up to this point.
One of the other members of my department is shifting to another show, so I’m getting thrown into the gaping maw of working directly with the audience.
This is definitely a good thing, because it means I get to actually move around for large parts of the day, and the sedentary life of calling several hundred people a day back can get a little laziness-inducing.
The downside is that now I get to hear every excuse, bribe, complaint, bitch, threat, whine, cry, and attempt at manipulation directly from each audience member, instead of just reading the complaints in the email.
Should be entertaining. Or deeply, deeply frightening.
