Welcome To ESP, your portal for everything hilariously stupid. My name is Winston and I am a customer service rep at a call center for a large media company we’ll call Telescreen Inc. Each day, I am baffled by the sheer stupidity of the people I encounter, from angry assholes to dirty rednecks and everything in between. This blog is a continuing collection of stories from my experiences with these questionable people. So join me as we slip into the realm of extremely stupid people…

  1. Congrats on being Freshly Pressed! It is so nice to know that I am not the only person who thinks stupid people should be entertainment for the not so stupid. This blog is like a breath of fresh air! I am a firm believer that stupidity should be painfful and/or lethal. You have even categorized stupidity…my hat is off to you Winston!!
    If you have a second you may find this entertaining…

  2. “… 90% of which are fucking stupid, so let’s mock them.”

    Crap! I’ve been using (what I now know to be) the largely inaccurate 80/20 rule– 80% of any population, at any given time, is going to be downright stupid, but 20% may have some semblance of intellect.

    Great blog! It’s a little terrifying how much I can relate!

  3. My partner works at a call center for a security company so she gets a lot of crazies (someone is breaking in because I tripped my own alarm, aliens are trying to abduct me so I need sensors on my ceiling too, etc.). Perhaps you could do a post comparing “crazies” with “stupids”? 🙂

    • Wow, I can see some interesting stories coming from that job, mostly people setting off their own alarms and scaring themselves in the process. I’m pretty sure the crazies and the stupids hang out, go to weekly gatherings, and have annual conferences. I will definitely need to analyze this further with a future post…

    • Though it may seem that way, I don’t work for Teleperformance. “Telescreen,” like “Winston” and “Big Brother” were all chosen due to the striking similarities between my work environment and the 1984 world. Either way, there are a ton of those tele-whatever call centers.
