Infotrax, How may I hurt you?

"I mean... help you!" I giggled. It wasn't really funny when you think about it. I could have potentially been talking to a money- loaded client willing to hand over some massive amount to the polite happy receptionist (yeah right.. but i can still dream). Luckily it was a laid-back employee off sight from our Orem Head Quarters.
"Well. you can start by not hurting me!" Jeff laughed.
"I'm so sorry! Oh my gosh. I don't know what I'm saying. I'm just... crazy!" Luckily no one is offend and we both laughed harder despite the fact I felt like a complete idiot. What kind of strange slip of the tongue was that? When I worked in retail I had horrible thoughts all the time about how i wanted people to die in various ways to get away from me but one never slipped out. Since coming to Infotrax in 2006 I have been much happier, at least I think I am. Maybe I have some subconscious death wish for others. Or maybe it could have something to do with that the fact that i was reading and the word, "hurt" was in the sentence i read prior to picking up the phone.
I do frequently answer, "InfoTRUCKS, how may i help you?" but i don't have any explanation for that one.

I laughed right out loud when I read that...CLASSIC. I cannot tell you how many stupid things I've said during my receptionist days...heck, I still say them at my job now. Good times...

Slip of the tongue or the unconscious? j/k -- remember when Julie tried to start prayer by saying "thank you for choosing arbys" -- I still laugh when I think about that one.

I think we all have our moments. At least it was someone who would understand!

Oh, and I can tell how much you LOVED retail. I think you just hate stupid people....

Its probably Freudian. I mean, anytime you work in a industry where you deal with customers and clients (retail, receptionist, server) I suspect its healthy to wish for someone perish along the way.

Just last night I was wishing for the pillar in our restaurant to collapse and kill my first table of the evening. I'm just saying.

Anyway, how are you these days? Haven't seen you in AGES.
