Twilight Zone

Work requested that I make outbound calls today.

Usually, you call me because you need help. Today, I called you. Most of you were gentle and realized that I had good intentions and I was on your side, one of you slammed the phone down, most of you let the answering machine pick up.

H-E-L-L-O. W-E A-R-E N-O-T H-O-M-E. P-L-E-A-S-E L-E-A-V-E A M-E-S-S-A-G-E A-F-T-E-R T-H-E B-E-E-P.


After the thirtieth call, I began to lose mental conscience. I left message after message for you, and you, and you. Every call started to blur together and I couldn’t help but think about how great it would feel to be tucked in for bed for the night.

After the sixtieth call, I began counting down the minutes until closing time. Today was the longest day of my life.

Here at home, we are about to attempt to give the dog a shower. He needs one. Ambitious of us? Maybe. But Sam pooped on his tail today.
