Give Time if Over Have Street

I have attempted, with only moderate success, to describe just how bloody frustrating my secretary is. I hope the following illustration of her incompetence will allow you to feel my angst (thanks for the great word, Sturdy Girl (formerly Love Monkey)).

I was out of the office most of the day yesterday, and I returned to find several telephone messages on my desk. On one of them, the secretary had written only the gentleman’s first name, no telephone number, and this delightful message: “call put you won’t here.” That is exactly what she wrote. I have no idea what it means, either. Even my secretary seemed to be confused at what she had written.

Sigh.

In other news, I have fixed Jen Mck’s and mel’s new blog addresses in my 40-Man Roster. I also added Guilty Secret and Have the T-Shirt. If you check them out, tell them Lefty sent you. They’ll send me a case of beer for any referrals.

The message is "He called you but you weren't there."

I used to have a "secretary" too.

Your secretary has her own form of shorthand. Too bad she can't remember what each word really means though. LOL

maybe she meant "called but you weren't here" but she has craptacular handwriting?

that or she's as dumb as a doorknob.

sturdy--I thought secretaries were supposed to HELP; I guess I was wrong.

180--no. She's actually a hometown girl--born and raised in this town.

jay--I WISH she were competent enough to use shorthand.

siz--her handwriting is actually very good; she VERY CLEARLY wrote "call put you won't here." And she's not dumb, just careless.

I can't say a word. I am a pretty awful secretary if you ask me. *shrugs* The boss doesn't say anything, but sometimes I marvel at my own secretarial idiocy.
Did she at least apologize for being a ditz?

g-dog--that really made me laugh; thanks!

jen mck--do you think that's because you're always thinking about DC instead of doing your job?

And, no, she didn't apologize. She just said, "Oh...well...he called."

But despite this, things are improving. I didn't always get the messages in the first place.

dude, my ass would have been fired if I left a message like that when I worked as a personal assistant.

But, he was a coke head.

Thanks for the shout out.

Why is it that the people who are responsible for answering the phones are the same ones who don't know how to write words down on paper in the right order... and give you the piece of paper? We have one of these too.

What kind of beer is it I need to send over?

Thanks for the link :)

P.S. - I could never be a secretary, I have an aversion to doing things for a 'boss'.

thanks - I'd say "anytime", but who can predict when they will actually be funny as planned...

It also contains several playback controls and a filter box.
That is all performed by web phone, Skype, Google Hangout or by telephone.
It's best to put an unobtrusive scroll at the bottom or top of the video throughout the entire song that gives this sort of information, as that way it kind of gets drilled into the listener's head.
