I thought I'd been getting awfully negative as a result of work, my injury, the way I have no current creative direction (a killer for me).
I was sure when I had the following exchange with a phone customer today:
She: "Computers live in a world of their own."
Me: (waiting for the information to come up) "Yep, don't you wish there was a way to spank them?"
She: "Oh, no! I wish there was a way to reach them and communicate effectively!"
Oh my, I was ashamed.
I've seldom had such an obvious wake-up call.
