(Newser) – David Gallant aspires to be a game developer, but by day he is a customer service rep for Canada's tax agency. Make that "was" a customer service rep. Gallant got fired after creating an online game about, yes, annoying customers, reports the Toronto Star (and spotted by BoingBoing). The upside: He's getting lots of love on Twitter, and people are going to his site to buy the game, "I Get This Call Every Day." It costs $2, but one person paid $50, just because. Final irony: In the game, the call-center worker usually ends up getting fired. "Blessing in disguise," tweeted Gallant.

So this fat guy who obviously never leaves his desk anyway, is complaining about working and his employer? Hmm guess it was wrong to fire a disgruntled employee publicly voicing his displeasure and defacing his company. Better yet let's make a crap game, that looks like my 2 year old did the graphics and make us feel sorry for you? Come on butter bean, get to the gym, hit the soap and razor and get another job. Maybe there is opening at Wendy's sprinkling the sea-salt on their fries?

"Look!... Up in the sky!" "It's a bird!" "It's a plane!" No..."It's Game Developer Man"... Yes, it's Game Developer Man ... Strange nerd from another planet, who came to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men! Game Developer Man.....who in his games can change the course of mighty rivers Bend steel in his bare hands And who, disguised as David Gallant, a mild-mannered call center worker for a great metropolitan center Fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice, and the American way!
