I played receptionist for three hours at work today. The girl who was in charge of relieving the receptionist on her breaks left two weeks ago, so a variety of people around the office have been helping out. Today; however, the full time receptionist was sick, so they were scrounging around to find people to cover all day. I was apparently the least bill-able person for the hours of 11:30 - 2:30, so I got stuck up front. It was kind of interesting.

First, I got to read the first eight chapters of Mockingjay. At work. Not really what I would want to do everyday, but for a Friday afternoon every once in a while, not bad. Then there was some guy, who I don't know (and this is a pretty small office) who was running all over the place looking for his cell phone. He even showed me the app on his computer that showed it was somewhere in the building, and for some reason he needed pliers. I'm not sure that part was related to the cell phone. I even got to receive three different shipments. Who knew.

Probably the saddest part of the whole day, was the shear number of people who felt the need to comment on how I was doing a better job than the person who's job it actually is, in a "why is this so hard for her" sort of way (rather than a "I think you should take over this" sort of way). I feel bad. So yeah, not all that exciting, but this means I posted something a whole three days in a row.
