We've All Talked To This Guy....

Mujibar was trying to get a job in India.

The Personnel Manager said, 'Mujibar, you have passed all the tests, except one.
Unless you pass it, you cannot qualify for this job.'

Mujibar said, 'I am ready..'

The manager said, 'Make a sentence using the words
Yellow, Pink, and Green .'

Mujibar thought for a few minutes and said,
'Mister manager, I am ready'

The manager said, 'Go ahead.'

Mujibar said, 'The telephone goes green, green ,
and I pink it up, and say, Yellow, this is Mujibar.'

Mujibar now works at a call centre.

No doubt you have spoken to him. I know I have.

Wow. I'm pretty sure over 90% of Americans dislike (to say the least) the fact that call centers are over seas and that sometimes it ican be difficult to communicate i.e. poor English training or heavy accents.

Leave it to a right wing douche bag to make it a xenophobic, bigoted joke. After all those are the only kinds of jokes Reich-Wingers seem to find funny.

This isn't really a right-wing/left wing thing, and I don't see the joke as being racist at all.. it's simply bad business for companies to outsource their customer service to people who don't speak fluent english. I know I've had a few extremely frustrating calls....

Eh. If it was really bad business, they wouldn't do it. The fact is that the money they save by moving things overseas is more than the money they may be losing by alienating customers (or at least, they think it is, since such calculations are hard to make precisely.)

Personally I've never had a problem speaking with an Indian customer service rep. I have had problems with American call centers, though I think in most cases its the business itself and not the person answering the phone which really matters. Some are just better at customer service than others, regardless of where their reps are answering the phone.

I think it's kind of funny (jokes of this nature have been around forever, but we didn't have the opportunity to attach photos), as in the nature of laughing at how, for ex, some Chinese rest. describe their dishes (mis-use of English with some funny results).

But it's also sort of whining about poor service from offshore call centers.

As a prior post indicates, business is doing this bc it's good for their bottom line financially.

But is typically rightwingers who have their panties in a bunch about teh illegals, so I can see that crowd not enjoying the prospect of having to chat w/said teh illegals to get their PCs fixed or whatever.

Too bad, so sad; get used to it.

Maybe if more right wingers went to college, they'd understand foreign accents better. I can't tell you how many of my higher level science and math class are taught by people with thick ESL accents.

I have a thick southern accent, and I know ESLs have a hell of a time understand my English no matter how fluent they are.

If you don't see the joke as being racist at all then take off your blinkers mate. Those call centres are in proper office buildings and portraying them as DIY roadside stalls builds prejudices not just about an industry, but a nation on the whole. And there are enough right-wing American frogs in the well who're too thick to get the joke.

The one about the colours was funny though. Even an Indian could crack it. Just that with the picture, it seemed in bad taste.
