    Or did you go out every day and stare them down?

    Boxster needs to get out more. Apparently it has been raining a lot around here for the last decade or three.

    Thought of this post while biking around the Chain of Lakes this afternoon. Quick count of hammocks at Bde Maka Ska was 11 hammocks on the south shore area alone. It is a thing, I knew that, but didn't know it had a name.

    Bad day for me and the gmail.
    Saw that one PT job I was hoping for but hadn't heard back from in a month just reposted the job. That's pretty much done.

    Got teased when I thought it had a message from ISU, but it was just indeed.com with some options. One, a librarian job, led me to looking into library degrees for a few minutes, just for fun. But really. that's a crapshoot at best.

    On the other hand, DMACC added my name to my class, so I'm formally assigned now to a course with 3 students enrolled. That's a step, I guess.

    Well poo, went to renew my BB tickets this evening. It said this page is lost. Luckily have to be in the Ames area tomorrow so will swing by the ticket office and let them fix it. Glad I didn't wait till the last day that would have pissed me off.

    Get your butt in there, bubba! We would miss your face (even if you DO sit in the wrong section)!

    Yep that problem is getting fixed tomorrow, was really surprised when the ticket site didn't work. Think I've renewed the last few yrs on line surprised it didn't work tonight. Luckily there is still time to fix the problem.

    FD girls' season ended last night at the hands of WDM Valley 3-0. But the good news is most of the important contributors this season were freshmen. Wait until next year!

    Nothing like getting scheduled for a meeting with a client without any idea what the meeting is about and then get put on the spot for something that I was able to figure out during the call that had nothing to do with me.

    Is there anything that makes you feel loved more than a mom?

    Doorbell rang about half an hour ago. Assumed some door-to-door ******** stuff so did not answer. Think I heard a flyer getting stuffed into the door jamb. Was busy drinking coffee and making sure everyone on the internet was staying in their lane. You know, important stuff.

    Our owner had a meeting with a customer of ours regarding our service levels. One of my co-workers got fired based on her results.

    I got a "I was told to pass along a thank you for your numbers."

    We used to have this happen all of the time. I was in a position where we would have the direct contact with our clients call me on the radio and ask us to meet them somewhere in the building. There would be an ambush where a pissed off client was there with the contact and we were walking into it totally unaware of the problem. I got so when I would get those "meet me at X" calls I would ask them to call me on the phone so I could get the poop on the problem and have an answer ready when I got there. I don't mind helping to assuage the concerns of a client, but help me help you by having the information to be prepared to solve the problem. It all goes back to the old adage of garbage in - garbage out. If you ambush me I'm probably not going to be as effective at solving the problem on the spot - and our (your) client will still be pissed rather than feeling heard and taken care of.
