ok, so..."the planner"

Posted By Whitney Fletcher, asba, Thursday, July 22, 2010

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"!

*FYI the picture I have doesn't even come close to showing how insane that planner is.
