ok, i realize this might sound like i have a human interaction deficiency, or something. really, i love having conversations. it’s just that i want to have them about stuff worth having a conversation over. and there’s a difference between phone conversation fodder and email conversation fodder.
i have gotten to the point where i send and receive email, all day long, from anywhere in the world. but, even when i’m sitting at my desk all week, i only check my voicemail messages about once every three or four days.
i just checked them, and there were a bunch. and i have to say it find it immensely annoying to have a list of 7 phone calls to return now, most of which could have been a very short email exchange. let’s schedule a chat on the phone, or coffee and conversation, when the topic warrants. and if you absolutely DO have to call me, leave a frickin’ email address, for goodness sake. i don’t have an assistant to call your butt back.
there. crankiness expressed. now i can get to these stinking phone calls with a tiny bit less attitude.
