I had to retrace my steps as to why I crossed slightly unfamiliar territory within a business context this morning. Mondays and Saturday mornings are the two busiest phone days in my office. While on one line, a call came through and as it reached voice mail they hung up. So I called them back via caller ID within two minutes,and left a message. Hopefully, I wish they will call back. Be careful what you wish for.
About an hour later, the phone rings again, and while picking up between the first and second ring, the caller hangs up. It is the same number where I left the message, wishing. I call back with no agenda in mind, except to be of service. Well...This woman with a rather captivating foreign accent that I can not place, starts to tell me why she doesn't leave messages and it wastes her time, and some companies, on and on. I explained, almost sheepishly, that I was on the other line and was happy to have the opportunity to call her back.
She goes back to the same story about some companies, this and that. As she gets angrier and angrier her voice gets a little deeper and her breathing gets a little louder and her captivating accent becomes a little intoxicating. I am a straight woman, but I know sexy when I see or hear sexy. So I just tell her firmly that if she doesn't want to leave a message, don't, but...then she yells ~ F*** You ~ ever so breathlessly.
I was at a loss for words, but somehow quickly stated "You are missing a golden opportunity, you would make a dynamite dominatrix" and she hung up. Another one who missed her calling, not living up to her potential.
Why would I say such a thing to someone I ask you? Especially in the morning hours? Because I saw that damn avatar due to a group email this morning and went to the post by TLW. And that ever present avatar. There is no other explanation, I assure you...
