So I have to get the meter counts from the customers to see how many copies they have made during each period because depending on the contract you are only allowed so many without being charged overages. So I get the readings and enter them in and then bill the customers.
So in a nutshell I take calls from customers, generate work orders for technicians and handle the billing for contract customers. All while talking to you fine people on the interweb. Which is why I have 2 monitors.
I see. My brother does something almost identical but for BT. Don't know if BT is well known in the US but baiscally they're the biggest brand in tele-communications in the UK. Not sure how thats relevant....he doesn't have two monitors though. He does however, talk with me on e-mail and we organise meetings throughout the day so we can go for a smoke. They must know he's stoned all the time, its blatant, they just don't seem to care. Must be good at his job.
