i use to be a call center advisor like you but then........... i took an arrow to the knee lol

Thats just put you in her bad books.. she hates that I do believe.


Anyways to Nic, a doctor would be better and lots of rest.

But for a small remedy, hot lemon tea or lemsip will work

The things you remember Yes, I do hate that. I toss folks to the darkspawn for making that joke.

Small update: I asked to be sent home sick, since my voice is so quiet the customers won't be able to hear me. Apparently it might come back to haunt me during my review next month, but I'm only not working because it's affecting me being able to work in the first place.

And thanks everyone for the advice! My doctor's is a bit far for me to go through over a sore throat, so I'll stick to Honey and Lemon lozenges, tea/milk with honey and gargling salt. I figure my voice should come back by Sunday (My next shift).

Okay... so this will out me as a complete geek!

At any rate, in high school I used to compete in singing competitions. Sometimes my voice would wear out preparing for one of these. It was always helpful for me to gargle lemon juice. I also gargled salt water as well. These remedies always seemed to alleviate the irritation in my throat in a couple of days. Of course, I am also going to have to agree with saurabhfzd and recommend "speaking as lil' as possible."

P.S. I am not a doctor, but I play one on CH!

..ouch....thank u for the support.

Finally Nic this is an old remedy for a cough and a sore throat.

1. 3 Tablespoons of Vinegar...NO Kidding i am serious and it works.
2...1 Level Table spoon of real Butter.

3.(1) level Tablespoon of Sugar.

4.There are 2 ways to do this!!! first way is put the ingrediants in a Cup and microwave until its all melted together and really HOT.

The other way, if you have no Microwave put the ingrediants into a very small pan and heat up untill the sugar has melted and everything is combined.Put mixture into a cup.

5.Then get a tea-spoon and sip the mixture off the spoon.
This really works and then rest your voice after taking the POISON..lol. Really Try It.

Lemon tea with honey is my advice :3

Strepsils also helps a bit, but other than that, drink plenty of water and rest the voice a bit.

If you use anything lozenges, I recommend placing them underneath your tongue, in that area that is just under your jaw (on the side, I hope that doesn't sound weird). I find they work much better, though it may feel a little raw if you have too many of them.

Guys, it's been a week >_> My sore throat is gone. Thanks for the advice though, I'll keep it in mind for future illness.

Can a mod lock this?
