Getting the job done

One of my not very good at all co-workers came to me while I was manning the phones at my library. She handed me an envelope. It was an open piece of mail from an insurance company. The envelope said it was very important. 

My not very good at all co-worker said "This was found in a book."

"What would you like me to do with it?" I asked.

"Merlion (Another not very good at all co-worker) found it and gave it to me. I thought you could call the person it belongs to."

"I don't usually call people." I said. "But I'll take care of it."

I looked in the envelope. It was a bit of meaningless information from four and a half months ago. I threw it in the recycling.

I guess that's why so many people from all over the library route their problems over to me. I'm always willing to take on these extraordinarily complex issues.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
