Minions #154 - Unsupported



To fully deploy humor, click on cartoons to enlarge

Stand by, following some typical jibber-jabber for a time-out from your Minion Master!

Your call is important to us. Please listen to the voices in your head while we transfer your call to Mumbai
NEW! SUPPORT "MINIONS AT WORK" BY BUYING STUFF YOU WERE GOING TO BUY ANYWAY!
We're now Amazon.com affiliates, which means that if you click on the Amazon link in our sidebar and make purchases from Amazon, a tiny little sliver of what you spend goes to support these fine (maybe even near-mint!) cartoons!

Later, we'll be adding a selection of Minion-recommended merchandise, but until then, use your imagination. Books, videos, electronics, games, maybe even ACTION FIGURES!

Minions at work is inadequately supported during this financial crisis by your purchases from our web stores and our advertisers. Feed the economy and help us bleed green just a little more slowly by purchasing tee-shirts, buttons, calendars, hats, undies (we kid not!), and other fine Minions at Work items at one of the following stores.

While waiting for your impending doom, pick up a Minions at Work tee-shirt or other great souvenir of your visit to the Lair:
THE MINION'S LAIR OF MERCHANDISE
"Satisfaction guaranteed or we'll make make you buy something else!"

and

NUMBER TWO'S HOUSE OF NAUGHTY
(For very small values of naughty.)

Join the Minions Reminder Email List. It's free, it's easy, and you'll never miss a Minions at Work cartoon (or if you do, it won't be our fault!) Or become one of our followers. See the follower box in our Mighty Sidebar!


Greetings, Hold-overs!

Let's face it. If you've ever called a "customer support" line, you know they're all run by the Forces of Evil.

If nothing else, you know that in this day of iPods, a technology company shouldn't have music-on-hold that sounds like it's being played from a hand-wound Victrola through two tin-cans and some string.

They've got some great music in India. While you've got half the population at slave-wages to read scripts about how the problem with your crap product is actually the fault of somebody else's crap product, maybe you could spend an extra dollar-a-day and pay somebody to pick up a sitar or something...

Meanwhile, keep your customer complaints -- uh -- comments coming. We love to hear from you!

- Your Outsource Minion Master, Steve

Man, that awful music thing gets me!
The only reason I appreciate the music being on at all is so I know I haven't been hung up on yet!
Smiles!
