I don’t like being hung up on.
OK, obviously I’m not going around killing the hanger-uppers. But trust me, you are now on my bad side.
I was doing a story, a stupid story about a library garden that was destroyed. I called the library administrator and was told multiple times she was “in a meeting.”
Then, when I got a different person to pick up finally, I find out that she’s here but the freaking assistant won’t let me talk to her.
“I don’t mean to be rude,” I said around 12:30 p.m. “But I’ve been calling since 8 a.m. Is there no way for me to speak with her?”
That’s when the disconnect signal came on.
Now I’m mad.
Hang up on me and see what happens. I write for a newspaper. Millions of people see my writing. Over 40,000 people subscribe to my paper. You will be called out.
Library administrator, you’re going down.
