One great thing about my last job is that I had to do so many crazy ass things, it gave me the confidence to feel like I could do anything. One time I had to call 60 people in Barbados with Rihanna's last name to see if they knew anything about how she was coping with the Chris Brown beat down incident. It was pretty insane--especially because I had to deal with a bit of a language barrier. Their accents were so thick, I could hardly understand what they were saying, and I'm pretty sure I was the first Southern girl they'd ever talked to, too. There were a lot of "Huhs?" and "Can you please repeat that agains" throughout the conversations--it was funny! The experience helped me overcome my phone anxiety though, and I ended up getting some good scoop, too!
How about everyone else: Do you get phone anxiety? Does your job require you to be on the phone a lot? (Everyone of the male species should answer YES to this question. Otherwise, why would you TEXT instead of calling so much?!)
