so I have an interesting goal today.
Do not call any clients Mr. Dick.
Especially when that is NOT their name. I repeat NOT. Not even close.
Yesterday, I get on the phone, all polite as get out. The assistant voice at the ready. I am phoning one of David's bigger clients a Mr. Andy *insert proper name here* and say: "Good morning Mr. Dick."
"Um, want to try that again?"
Peels of laughter instead of I'm sorrys ...
Geez, I am sorry (guffaw, haha, give me a sec...) Mr. *insert proper name here*, I (tears rolling now) misspoke!
Mr. Dick. Great.
Yes, I still have a job.
On a completely different note. I decided last night that when I grow up I want to be a private investigator, living on a sailboat with my dog Lola.
Oh, yes I can!
