Ok, so….no one is safe from the blogster that I have become. We
are a staff that love each other dearly and with that love comes the occasional
teasing. A staff member, who shall remain nameless, is going to be the topic of
today’s blog. We’ll call this person, "Pat” because that’s a fairly gender
neutral name, and unless I am missing something we don’t currently employ
anyone by that name.
"Pat” has the most insane planner you have ever seen! Most
people today use some form of electronic calendar device, "Pat” however,
has refused to stay hip to the times and still hand writes all appointments,
meetings, deadlines, etc. in a teeny tiny little black calendar. I guess for
someone who doesn’t have a ton of appointments this might be ok but "Pat”
is quite popular and maintains one busy schedule. This poor little black
planner is filled to the max with cryptic messages, colored pens, hi-lighter
marks, scratched out notes, etc.
Now, don’t take this the wrong way "Pat,” but these cryptic
notes in your planner remind me of something one might find in a serial killer's
possession. Not to say that you are serial killer (because you are the nicest
person ever) or to generalize that serial killers use planners, but in all my
years of watching Dateline and 60 Minutes, they have yet to show me a serial
killer that uses Outlook or a Blackberry for their note taking…I’m just saying.
With that being said I think I am going to start a fund to purchase "Pat”
a Blackberry for Christmas…and then lessons to learn the Blackberry :)
Haha, we love you and your creepy planner, "Pat"!
