Was striked by desperation yesterday. For 5 hours I tried to reach Miss Fan on the phone. I think I pressed the speed-dialer at least 50 times. No reply. Which was odd. As a matter of fact it has never happened before. I mean, she calls me sharp 8 every morning, then around 10, always during lunch to talk for at least 20 minutes, at 2 pm and around 5 pm she checks up on me again. If she's scheduled a meeting, I know about it, and she always rings me as soon as the meeting is over never mind which hour.
It sounds like an addiction, and in a way it is. We are not discussing private issues such as children or pets or men though. Our business is strictly business, so when I need to speak to Miss Fan, it's because I have a serious problem that only she can solve. But for 5 hours she decided to be un-reachable. And I was slightly panicking. At some point I thought I'd done something wrong. But after serious evaluation conclusion was that whatever I'd done, it still wouldn't explain her hostility to speak to me. Normally I receive an angry email if I've trimbled and then that's that.
F-I-N-A-L-L-Y she called me! - Claiming that she'd switched off the phone accidently - and didn't know how! - No wonder why I'd been forced to hear the metallic ISpeak woman yealling in my ear "You will now be transferred to the information bar. Please leave a message after the beep" - 50 times.
Sorry Miss Fan, but you need to read the instruction book, because whenever I dial your number, it's an emergency!
