But the guy at the liquor store, HE knew - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
But the guy at the liquor store, HE knew
Survived second day of Tramping About Harassing People For SCIENCE! Went less well than first, as I'm through the last couple of fresh entries and on to the "...So, are you home NOW?" stage of the process. Tomorrow will be the "...So, Mister Dude In Taqueria Downstairs, do you know anything about those flats?" stage for this group of cases, so I foresee more Hilarity Ensuing, unless a couple of those side trips into Voicemail Hell looking for building managers pay off before tomorrow morning. (Thursday is pencilled in as "We found someone who sort of speaks Gujarati" day.) The good bit is that I'm close enough to home with this batch that I can run back to have a pee and re-sort my materials in peace and comfort every so often without it being a Big Honking Deal. Not to mention that as I am Technologically Deprived this is also where my phone lives, so this is where calling building-managers' useless voicemail has to happen anyway.

I can't help but wonder, every time I've had anything resembling a Real Job, how anything actually happens in this country when nobody ever answers the phone.

Should I expect a call from you, even though I have returned my census form? :)

Depending on whether you returned your census form, or just a census form, possibly -- they're supposed to be coded to specific housing units, but we're turning up a lot of mailmen who didn't actually know that. So if, say, the form you sent in was actually the one for downstairs and they didn't send yours back... well, that's one of the things we're sorting out, yeah...

Can I just say I LOVE the title of this post with an enormous love?

It does already begin to feel like I've asked the fireman, the green grocerer, the butcher, the baker...
