mbna....revisited

My past. My past is coming back to haunt me. Thank goodness I got out before....."the merger."



Let me say this, though. When you work at a credit card bank.....you'll participate in anything if it means that you don't have to sell someone another credit card for 2 hours.

My day, and possibly my life are forever changed after watching this video. I love it that he even threw a "one spirit" in there for good measure. I also love watching the crowd look at each other before the singer sings to see if anyone else is taking this seriously. Corporate genius, caught on tape.

As a former MBNA employee, I will have to agree with you Becks. The normal person will see this video and be shocked and wonder what level of hades merged with what alternate doo-doo corporate universe do people exist that engage and haplessly witness such displays of foolishness and irresponsibility without running for the hills while slapping their ears and pouring water on their heads crying. Well, after more than 5 hrs of telemarketing delirium that eventually manifests itself when an older woman tells you, no, she does not want your credit card and you deadpan, "is that because you do not have a left foot?"...well, even the office bozo, er, bono, is a welcome break.

Maybe you're right, Jerome, but I couldn't get past the first line of the song before I had to close my browser because I was so embarassed for the guy..OH MY GOSH!! Who thought that was a good idea!

if there's anyone who can't quite understand my burning desire to never work in sales (and all it clearly incorporates) of any kind again.....please press play on this video again. please.

Wow.... I..I.. cannot express what I just saw in words. It brought a tear to my eye... because I feel so bad for that poor, poor man.

Oh, and all those people that gave him a standing ovation in the end... I only have one thing to say to them... Liars!!
