8/3/17 ftf, wren

It was insanely busy at work yesterday, no doubt my penance for playing hooky on Tuesday.  A pretty big and urgent project dropped in my lap (via email, of course) in the morning.  With about 10 minutes left in the day, as I was scrambling to complete the project, chatty secretary dropped in to say, “Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help.”  She then stuck around to give me the blow by blow details about everything she’d been doing since noon.  She wasn’t stopping, and I really wanted to finish what I was doing, so I kept working…as she prattled away.  It eventually occurred to me that she might possibly be telling me something of importance, so I said, “I’m sorry, but I’m not listening to anything that you’re saying.”  Haha, well, she quickly apologized and left.  Clearly, I need to be direct more often.

The chatty secretary is out today, and the boss should be busy with patients all day, and I’m hoping to achieve feats of productivity.
