So I sez to Mabel, I sez...

Good morning, nameofcompany. Please hold and I'll transfer you.

Good morning, nameofcompany. Please hold and I'll transfer you.

I'm not sure exactly, something about a stuck dog and an ill-advised mattress moving. Flat on her back for two wee-.

Good morning, nameofcompany. I'm sorry, they're not here today, would you like their voicemail?

So, I guess Pam and Richard have been going cuckoo trying to answer the phones and get the rest of their work don-

Good morning, nameofcompany. No, this isn't Pizza Hut.

Yeah, she's named Pam too. It's a little confusing. Especially since people keep saying "Oh, is this Pam?" when they call and I have to explain that it is but not the Pam they meant. Then they get even more confused. I'm thinking I may change my na-

Until Claudia gets better I guess. It's only a few hours a day. I don't mind helping ou-

Sure. Saguaro Conference Room, 12 to 1, I'll reserve it for you. I'm sorry, I don't know your name? Oh, the VP of Marketing, I guess I've just never run into you before. I'm in the XY group. No, 3 months now. I'm Pam. Another Pam. Yes, it is getting a little confusing.

Where was I? Oh, last night. I showed up two hours early, can you believe it? Turns out I never switched my watch back from the Pittsburgh trip. Yeah, a week ago. I don't know, I guess I just don't look at it that muc-

Good morning, nameofco-

Aughh. Stupid fax.

You know, two different people have complimented me on my overhead speaker skills. How weird is that? Apparently, I have a pleasant overhead speaker voi-

Good morning, nameofcompany. No, I'm the other Pam. I'll transfer you.

So how did last night go, the big date? Any sparks? Could he be the on-
