Email Free Friday

Posted in Uncategorized by Hams on 2008/07/19

I have the utmost of respect for my director.  Not only because she has faith that I can do my job with some degree of competence, but also because she’s always thinking of new ways to improve and evolve.

This week was Email Free Friday, the idea being to improve internal and external customer service by actually getting up and talking to people.  Because of my inability to sit still for any extended period of time, I thought I did a pretty good job of this already, but having a day where I am mandated to talk to people?  Awesome!

I needed to talk to Kirby about redesigning a sticker for a hospital.  Turns out it was helping staff to remember to call us, mostly because they are now peeling off the phones and sticking to people’s hair.  Though I found this moderately funny, this combined with the ink that is rubbing off, is leading to a re-design of these stickers.  So I traverse Cube Land and recount these experiences wtih him and provide assurance that a graphic designer won’t be needed if the printer will just stick to the template I will develop.

He says, “You’re smart, I know you can do it.”

Aww thanks.

Then says, “You’re smart, just have no common sense.”

Laughter comes from my director’s office as she says “Did you really just say that to her?”

And we’re supposed to be focusing on customer service….  See what happens when we’re forced to speak to one another? 😉  I vote for Insult Free Friday next week. 

I’ll be out of town.
