At work I am required to wear a head-set. It’s supposed to be ergonomically friendly, no more trying to hold the phone receiver between your head and shoulder while trying to type; no more ringing phones, just a
As my luck would have it, seems people can never hear me and I end up yelling into the mouthpiece while my co-workers constantly tell me I’m loud and yelling. Mmmmmm seems like I can’t win.
Then there’s the cord. Always getting twisted and wound up. Basically I think of it as a leash that keeps me tethered to my desk. The range I am allowed to manoeuvre in my workspace is limited - maybe 2 or 3 feet at the most if the cord is stretched to the limit.
I’m not sure what I was reaching for or where I thought I was going Friday (if you’ve ever read any of my Sunday *Sigh* posts before you know my mind has a tendency to wander…often) but I stupidly went outside the comfort zone and almost ended up strangling myself on the dumb cord of my phone “leash”.
Note to self: Take off the headset before you decide to go for a walk-about. Makes self strangulation less possible.
My co-workers had a good chuckle at my expense….ya like that hasn’t happened before.
