Oh, the places…

So I’m trying to use the last hour of the day reasonably productively, and whoa! The ‘phone’ on the computer is ringing.

Which app? Who *is* that?  What the …?   My body reacted a bit as if it were a police siren pulling me over. Even after I figured out “this is from work, and I’ve seen that name,” I just let it ring.

Teams made it easy to type in chat:   “You rang?”

I see “J….. is typing,” and I”m going everywhere in my mind.   (By the way, about the only ‘anxiety’ I have besidses riding on ice is telephone calls with strangers.) Did I join a team I wasn’t supped to be on?   How weird was it to answer “you rang?”

Oh, they’d like to chat about … a student needing a thing with a schedule.

Oh — they want the other Sue Jones… and now I need to reflect on what that felt like since it’s probably about half the anxiety so many students hvae about math.
