Yes, I *do* know what you're going through!

I'm a bill collector. I work full time - talk to people on the phones for 8 hours every day.

And let me tell you I'm fucking sick of the ones that tell me "Well I wouldn't expect you to understand what I'm going through" or "You don't know what it feels like to struggle".

OH, PLEASE!

I have $3,000 in past due bills on my credit report and $5,000 that aren't on my credit report yet. I owe things to collections also. Just because I'm a bill collector doesn't mean that I don't also have a life! We all struggle. We all have bills. 


Just my rant for the day.

I think being a bill collector has to be one if the toughest jobs. I couldn't do it. I struggle too, but we're doing better.

It is tough. Once in a great while I get to talk to someone who is really thankful for my help, but 95% of the people I talk to are rude.

We don't hang up on people. It's actually against the law to do that.

There are millions of collection agencies out there.

That is a job I would never be able to do. Vent away. Back in my younger days I was always polite when a bill collector would call. It was not their fault that I fucked up. I hope your day gets better. *hugs*

I used to be in collections. If we had stuff on our credit we got fired. That's at every collection agency I've ever worked at.

As a bill collector, how do you help?  Offer payment plans?  Just curious.  I've only ever dealt with one collection agency and it was all or nothing, or they'd sue.
