Hanky panky in the call center

Working in a call center all day has got to get tedious at times. The young folks in India working these jobs seem to have found ways to spice things up: Affairs with colleagues and party drugs. All that’s missing is a little rock ‘n roll. According to a Times Online article, 1 in 5 call center workers surveyed say they’ve had “relations” with a colleague, while another poll showed 1 in 4 admitted to taking club drugs. Can you blame them? They work odd hours talking to cranky Americans. At least they’re not “going postal”.
