i spent nearly six years working on the telephone. six years.
i’ve never been a phone guy. i mean, there are exceptions, of course – friends that i’ve had marathon phone conversations with, but by-and-large, i’ve never been much for phones. my best guy friend and i can’t spend more than a few minutes talking to each other on the phone – we’ve tried – it gets awkward sometime after the third minute.
funny how i spent a good portion of my previous job answering calls and dealing with escalated situations with customers (and i don’t like conflict to add to matters).
with my new job, i don’t have a phone at my desk – and that makes me happy.
