Heads or Tails - My Job

Some of you might probably know (assuming) that I work in a call center.
My country is competing with India in terms of outsourced customer and IT services.
Clients are mostly international in nature majority which translates to time, place and cultural barriers. Call Center job is well paid compared to other white-collar jobs but the the end of the bargain is getting a life which is not as normal as any skilled worker. Graveyard shift or getting up or getting home in the wee hours of the morning. On duty in every celebrated holiday that you could think of (with premium pay of course).
So basically or generally, this is how a call center dude can be described. Just click on the photo to magnify.Translation:
1. Malayo sa (work) - (lit.) far from/not related to (work)
2. Abubot - gadgets
3. Lamig - cold

I did telemarketing for a while and know that doing phone work is very hard but also can be fun!

The turn over of employees in call centers is high from what I know because of the working hours.
