So, imagine this call:
“Sorry to bother you on the weekend, but I wanted to let you know I won’t be at work on Monday — I was stabbed last night.”
Dumb Question #1 “You what!?!?”
Dumb Question #2 “Did you go to the hospital?”
Half-Sensible Question #1 “What the heck happened?”
Half-Sensible Question #2 “Where are you now?”
Half-Sensible Question #3 “So, are you okay or what?”
Gee, what do you say?
I felt like a total tool, because I had no idea what to say or how to respond.
I guess I can say I am fortunate enough to have lived a life where that sort of thing isn’t common.
