After I hung up, I received a follow-up text. “Very fun. thank u!”
Then a call the next day at work. “Hey, I was hoping someone could talk to me about my Wells Fargo stock. Do you think you could help me with that?” I was mortified. I loathe getting personal calls at work. Out in the cubicle open. Co-workers listening to your every word.
“Funny Bill. That was fun last night.”
“I had a great time. Are you free to get together again soon?”
“Yeah, probably Friday. I’ve got a Burning Man meeting tonight. Just give me a call later. I’ll have to check my schedule.”
“Ok will do. Have a great day!”
What a sweetheart. I appreciated the follow-up call even though it annoyed me that he did it while I was working. I liked the attention. I had been craving it. Finally, I got it.
