What sort of therapy do Plusbet staff receive?

Here, in the tranquil confines of the chit chat lounge, I have to ask -
What sort of therapy do the PN staff get?  I have to commend you all ( and the mods) for remaining polite and professional at all times on these boards, despite (in my opinion), sometimes having to endure a constant stream of badly thought out, poorly researched comments and questions.  It really does speak volumes for PN's ethos of custoemr care, and is one of the reasons why, at least for now, I am not concerned by issues such as the Durban call centre.  I believe PN know what their USPs are, and will work hard to protect them.  Yes, you could cut costs and screw the customer as a good short term strategy, but not in the long term.
So congratulations and please let us know what you do to cope.  I imagine you have a little padded room marked "Forum staff and mods" only, with a copius supply of alcohol, punchbags and hard drugs.  Please tell me I'm right!

Yup - we do have a padded cell marks Staff and Mods only - but is just a virtual one I'm afraid.
The staff get a pretty good deal, but as the mods are spread all over the country, it'd have to be a very big room for it to be local to us all.

Re: What sort of therapy do Plusbet staff receive?

when you get questions like these its time for a stiff one

They are apparently requests to computer helpline technicians in the USA.
Quote
1. "Why isn't my wireless mouse connected to my computer?"
2. "Can you reset the internet for me?"
3. "Where can I get software to track UFO's?"
4. My computer keeps telling me to press any key. Where's the "any" key?"
5. Can you rearrange the keyboard alphabetically?"
6. My daughter is locked in the bathroom. Can you pick the lock?"
7. "Can you tell me the weather forecast for next year?"
8. "Can you instal cable TV on my PC?"
9. "How do I get my computer coffee cup holder to come out again?" (This is from a user who thought his CDROM thingy was a cup holder).
I know I'm a nitwit when it comes to using a computer, but I would be looking for the nearest wall (headbanging against for the use of!) if I'd been on the receiving end of any of those lol.

Dear god.  You don't think James is sitting in the sauna wearing nothing but a towel, telling people how to fix their routers, do you??  Shocked

I have it on good authority that staff have to bring their own towels for sauna-based support.

Actually, in Scandinavia, it is tradition to use a towel in the sauna, but to go and roll in the snow afterwards, towelless.
I haven't actually used our gym here.  I keep on forgetting to go to my induction.
