Back to work


Nope, no pretty posts about old trees and steaming deer and the labor of a thousand men fading back into the ancient shores of the Mississippi. 

I am back at work. After five lovely days off, I am back at work.

I answer the phone.

"I am trying to send an email." A person on the phone begins without preamble. "And the computer keeps telling me that it can't be sent. I know I am putting in the address and it won't let me! I need to send this email!"

Taken aback, I gently try to get a grip on the situation. "So you need some help with your computer?"

"No I don't need help with my computer!" She snaps. I've exhausted her patience. "Can I talk with someone else?"

I transfer her on upstairs without argument. 

I guess my people skills grew rusty in my absence.

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.
