I had a phone message on my office phone one evening recently, of course it came in after I left the office. Why do people wait to make calls late in the day, after I have headed for home? The message was from a woman, I didn't recognize the name or number. The next morning I braced myself for the crazies, and called her back. I got her voice mail and left a message saying I was returning her call.
Later that afternoon, shortly before I left to go home, she called me back. She said she was referred to me by a lawyer, she dropped a name I didn't recognize, it sounded like a television character. I asked what it was about, and she explained that she was a "fashion and style consultant" and Bob or whatever his name was told her I was a sharp dresser, and I might find her help useful.
At that point, I started laughing. I know it is rude to laugh at a caller, but I explained that obviously the person who suggested she call me, didn't know me, because to say it as shortly as possible, I dress like a slob. I suggested that she was wasting her time - I know she was wasting mine.
So the women above, was she a bit overdressed for Wednesday morning rush hour?
