So, I rehearse a short script in my head before I call him. I always hope the other person won't answer so that I can leave a message. Of course, he answered, and for whatever reason, we had this really bizarre, hilarious conversation about how the caretaker of the apartment complex (not the landlord) has a specific way of conducting his business. Anyway, he was funny and weird and I like that about people. Most importantly, he did not seem in the least bit annoyed by me or my request.
So I got in the car and rejoiced a little. I do this all the time. Why can't I remember that most people don't default to dislike of other people, i.e., me? Why can't I remember that?
I am not far enough involved in my new job to have any revelations yet, other than I absolutely enjoy elderly people.
Speaking of elderly people, go to YouTube and search for "Sprint, Staying Awhile."
