Tuesday's Time Waster - Waiting for the Phone to Ring

Yep, still haven't heard anything. I skipped a meeting at my part time finance work in hopes that the phone would ring (we're not allowed to take calls during a meeting so if the phone ringer is not turned off and it rings you owe donuts at the next meeting). It did not ring. I still think it's in very poor form not to acknowledge inquiries. I just don't know what to think, since several of my colleagues have the same issue of waiting. I could get all paranoid, but I won't. In fact tomorrow I'm going to look into licensing requirements out of state, since another friend may have work for me out of state once a month for a week at a time. Generally, it's high dollar work when he does it. Like about $4000 to $5000 per week. I think I would make a tad less, because he would get a supervisor/finder fee. But that negotiation is down the road a bit. Yeah, that's what I do when I'm waiting for the phone to ring. I make contingency plans. Well that and surf the net mindlessly...

Having a "Plan B" is always the best policy... I don't know if it is the same for you, but generally when you're waiting for something to happen it never does... and then, the moment you stop worrying about it.. it does happen! lol
