Escape your life for a little while — come play in mine.

I absolutely cannot make this stuff up.

Posted by Lissa on April 27, 2012

Double-bookings are always terrible. It means, most likely, that someone in our office screwed up with the calendar. It certainly means that one client will have to wait for quite a while or come back another time, i.e. that s/he made the trip for nothing.

Yesterday started with a double-booking. The clients involved?

1) A widow whose husband recently died, along with her now fatherless daughter.

2) A widower whose wife was murdered last weekend.

I swear to you, the next time my day starts like that I’m going home and going back to bed!

    That could be the beginning of a beautiful story, right there. But you probably were talking about the stress of dealing with upset people in frustrating situations…..lol
    It could still make a really good story.

    Holy crap! What is it you do that has you interacting with so many sad people?

    At least Geico didn’t stumble in to add further drama.
