....do NOT call me at work.
Why? Because I'll be incredibly busy? No. Well, yes. I will be, but that's not why.
Because I'm working and it would not be ethical to take personal calls on company time? No.
Answer: Because I'll have to answer the phone.... AND I WON'T KNOW HOW!!
We're getting a new phone system. Feh. Remember the good old days when working the phone consisted of:
3. Talk talk tell me more tell me more like does he have a car? Yes? what then? gotta go.
5. Hang up.
easy peasy japaneasy.
Here's an idea of what's in store for me. I attended a phone training session today. It lasted 77 minutes. There's an instruction book that is 60 pages long. 60 SIXTY!! SIX OH.
The word "functionality" was used.
The phone has the following features:
*i-- (oops. I forgot. It's some normal word onto which they've appended an "i" and it sends your calls to voicemail if you don't want to talk to that person. I-dodge?)
*99 speed dial numbers. Like I could remember 99 speed dial numbers! And maybe some
day, if you're good, I'll tell you my stand-up routine about speed dial and relationships and how my daughter thinks Jerry Seinfeld stole the routine from me.
*In addition to the 99 speed dial, there are the "One-touch" and "abbreviated dial" numbers. It's going to be easier just to remember phone numbers.
*there's more, but I kinda zoned out.
And by the way, exactly when was it that "Hold" became "Park"? I somehow missed that memo.
Basically, I'm so screwed.
Hello? Ernestine? One ringy-dingy. *snork*
