Work was challenging today. There were many angry people and they wanted very much to rail against my workplace. Being the person who answers the phone, that translates to railing against me. I know better than to take it personally, but damn it’s hard to deal with in a non-stop barrage like that. That’s what I get for working somewhere that deals with high controversy subject matter on a regular basis, and has a very vocal spokesman.
I also had over 250 emails from the weekend to sort through. That kept me busy pretty much the rest of the day when I wasn’t on the phone. They’re not done yet, but somewhat more manageable. Here’s hoping too many more don’t show up overnight.
Tomorrow evening I’m going to see one of the stops on the “If YOU Were Prime Minister” Tour myself. There’s a stop in Vancouver at the Stanley theatre, and I bought some tickets for Adam, Chris and I. Only makes sense that I should see what I’ve been working for, and what’s causing all this hubbub – positive and negative.
I’m looking forward to it.
