a few thoughts about the telephone

"Saucy" Postcard 1905 - 1915

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.
