Several months back this lady calls me about a marketing opportunity. I wasn’t crazy about the idea, so I said thanks, but no thanks. I haven’t heard from her since. Today I get this email from her. The subject is “offers.” I’m thinking, “Eh, you’re not helping your odds here, but I’m still listening.” I open the email and begin to read, “Hi Steve,” Oh goodness… That was it. “You lost me.” I said while laughing. It doesn’t actually bother me when people call me Steve; it’s just that I have no respect for their sense of observation.
Moments ago as I was wrapping up another email I said to myself, “Man, I’ve gotten nothing done today! …well, I guess that’s not really true. I mean, I scheduled a couple meetings, filed some paperwork, researched some stuff, ran some errands, and posted some things on my blog.” Then I paused and thought, “Oh, so this is what normal work feels like. …It feels like you’re getting nothing done!” =) Ahh, I’m quite entertained by my jaded view of corporate America.
Let’s raise another plastic cup and drink to good times! Cheers!
