One of my all time favorite quotes:
Insanity – doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
I love you Mr. Einstein and this morning I was signing your name over a series of phone calls I received.
Here’s how it played out:
7:43am – phone rings – I ignore it b/c I was tied up with getting my sons ready for school.
7:55am – phone rings again – from the same number as before…I ignore it…same reason as before.
8:02am – phone rings again – I answer it – it must be important b/c they keep calling – although they aren’t leaving a message.
Caller asks for Carly.
I inform her that she has the wrong number.
8:17, 8:45 and 8:55am – – same scenario plays out…I answer it – she asks for Carly, I tell her she has the wrong number.
Finally – 9:02am – – during this exchange, I ask her – what number are you trying to call? She says 443-#### .
Well – I see the problem – my number is 440-#### – – –
Two questions I have for this girl – and I get that the hours between 7am – 9am might be really early for someone and maybe she wasn’t quite firing on all cylinders yet.
- How did you get a zero mixed up for a three?
- Why did you keep either misdialing and/or redialing my number expecting a different result?
See quote above….
Happy Thursday Everyone!
