|“||''My best friend was actually working at Nintendo while we were in college, and I needed a job. He mentioned to me that he was able to play games while answering the phones. I couldn't believe it, so I went to the temp agency and let them know that I wanted to work at Nintendo. Well, I got the job, but they put me on a production line in their production department. It was fine, but I wanted to be on the phones playing games. I ended up going back to the agency and they transferred me to the consumer service department so I could play games and answer phones!||„|
