Ramblings of an Eeediot

I have a habit of taking notes while I’m on the phone. Early in the conversation, part of my brain switches to automatic pilot and I begin to jot down random comments made by myself or the person at the other end of the phone.

This morning I sat down to begin working. And just as I start to shuffle some papers around, I notice a note to self that says:

Do you understand how, what you just said, could totally like, piss me off?

Yep, I said that.

…to someone in my doctor’s office.

I’m an eeediot.

This is merely one example, of many, where I say or do something that is kind of inappropriate. Telling that dude he just pissed me off, followed by a gentle explanation why, was a totally effective tactic. Could I have chosen different words?

Nope. I was really pissed.

    I doodle while in meetings.

    Sometimes, my doodles are graphic in nature. I'm not sure why...it just happens.

    Luckily, I'm very good friends with the HR guy.

  3. I write down random snippets of conversations and then weeks later wonder why I have the following written on one page 'Vermillion' 'shovel''Golden delicious''dog-loyal'
    'film loop' 'fandango' and loads more.

    I have no recollection of writing these things or why I wrote them...
