This was one of those days, you know? One of those days when no matter how many times you get going, you keep finding yourself wrenched back to the starting line and starting over. The phone started early, with a bizarre series of accounting questions from Tim. (And how many times can I tell him Iím not an accountant before it sinks in?)
Then the Boss started, with his own needles and nudges, about this and that (but mostly about nothing). I finally gave up trying to start my real day and turned on the answering machine so I could get all the way out the door to run my errands. It was a short trip today, just to the post office and back, but wouldnít you know there was a message on the machine when I got back.
So I called the Boss again and tried again to figure out what he was asking me, so I could figure out how to answer him. It was something about percentage of profit and how it applies to overhead expenses, and we went around and around about it for a good long time. By the end, I was even more confused than he was, but he thanked me for helping him straighten it out in his mind before hanging up.
Huh? Well, okay then. If heís satisfied with whatever I told him, I guess I am, too, even though Iím not sure what that was. I just hope he doesnít ask the same question again tomorrow morning at the crack of doom, because Iíll never be able to figure out what I told him today.
