Why don't you hear your boss out, with the extent of you infection and all.
56 - if you look back at my comment I said "how would you feel if." I was doing it to show her my point and give her a taste of her own medicine. I'm not going to sit here and argue that it is not good to insult people. If you all want to believe it's ok to do, be my guest because you're beyond reasoning with at that point.
I got to say I agree with your boss. Due to my past experience with call centers. I never found anyone there listening to me anyhow. You actually might make employee of the day
You should have just said "what I can't hear you". After that relax and feel better. Depending on where you live a simple fmla paperwork will protect you from punishment . Edit * don't know about in the UK ...
FMLA /might/ protect your job. There's some pretty stringent requirements for it to be in effect both at your workplace, though I expect a call center will certainly have enough employees to make the cut, and personally. You need something like 1300 hours of work in the past year and you need to have worked there for a year.
Op should have just kept saying "I'm so sorry, but I can't hear you, could you please speak up and repeat what you said" then continue to say that 3 or 4 times until he's frustrated and realizes that it's pointless and also (hopefully) clues in that you'd constantly be saying that to the customers too.
Your boss is an idiot for not comprehending the simple relationship in your situation.
