So, I’m training the girl at work who is taking my place and my brain is turning into mush. She keeps asking me things like “what do you call this thing that you do?” and I have to say something brilliant like “Umm, I don’t really call it anything. Just. . .maybe, ‘fax thingys?’
Or, I’ll be showing her how to use some of the software and I realize that I don’t actually know the names of any of the buttons I push or tabs I open or things I check. And because I don’t know right from left (don’t laugh!), I end up saying things like “push that button in the corner. No, the other corner. Um, it’s called. . .let me get closer so I can see. Mmm, oh yes. The “Apply Filter” button. Yes, okay, that’s step one of fifty.”
It’s a wonder she hasn’t beaned me with the stapler yet.
