I woke up yesterday morning with laryngitis. Today I’m totally out of it, so I went to the doctor. Turns out I have an ear infection, a low grade fever, and laryngitis. I haven’t shut up yet. Lol I felt fine leading up to this, other then seasonal allergies. It’s very amusing to me, and everyone around me. I squeak when I laugh. Work will be hilarious, I’m going to whisper to everyone.
We get a lot of phone calls at work, all sorts, customers, telemarketers and our own corporate office calling with phone surveys (sort of like secret shoppers). For several months there were a lot of calls where there was no one on the other end.
So for a while I would answer the phone as I normally do, and when no one would respond I would whisper into the phone, “Hello? Hello? What are you wearing?” And then hang up. My thought being it was likely an automated call from a telemarketer. It was very amusing to me, and to my co workers. My one co worker (Angel) told one of our commercial customers to call and not say anything so I would do that. I stopped when I realized that our corporate calls are ALSO partially automated. (It never ended up being anyone from corporate when I did that, thank goodness.)
In the months after leaving JR, it dawned on me that some of those calls were likely him, checking to make sure I was at work. I think he often lied about being at work, and we all know how that works, he was doing it so I must be as well. They were still happening fairly frequently during the two months of harassment right after leaving him. Not so much anymore. There’s no way for me to prove it, no caller ID at work, it’s just my intuition.
I’m still looking forward to whispering to everyone. When Crazy isn’t trying to wreck it, I actually really enjoy my job.
