Voicemail Antics

Somehow, I know I wasn't meant for telemarketing. In my crazed state last evening, I received a message from, you guessed it, the Trib. I have no idea if this is good or bad news, and in my haste, I returned the call without thinking what would come out of my mouth if a voicemail would pick up the call.

The line which I was directed to by the message, was just a long, long series of rings, so I thought I would be persistent and call the general desk. I was directed to the editor and left a message that Chewbacca could have delivered with more expediency.

I called again this afternoon and reached another general voicemail, again leaving an incomprehensible message.

Note to self: Wait for the stress of a finished semester to subside before making any important phone calls. Lesson learned. What's the worst that could happen? I would get fired before I even start and have a summer of freedom babysitting again. Not too bad of a deal. *Slaps self in head*

Revised listing: 1)Macs and 2)voicemail--the root(s) of all technological evil.

Good news...The Trib called. I start Tuesday in the newsroom. :-D

Well, you just need to chill a little before leaving a message. If it's really bad, dear, try writing what you need to say before calling and using that as a sort of script.

By the way, I'm placing my Mac order shortly. They are NOT the root of evil, that was my Compaq from last year, lest you forget...

Yes, your Compaq was terrible, but Macs in general, still top my list.

That's great... I was sure there was nothing to worry about. You'll do a fantastic job.
