Work can be a bit strange because I never work face to face with anyone. I go into the office twice a week (I telecommute the other three days), but I don’t work with anybody at the office. Usually. Also, through reorganizations, people changing positions as a normal part of their career, etc., it is easy to lose track of old coworkers.
I spent a few hours working face to face with an old colleague. It was someone who I used to talk to at least once a week and used to see maybe a couple of times a month. I also had a few business trips with him in the past. It must have been at least five years since I’ve last seen him. So it was nice catching up, and also nice working with someone face to face.
In a world that doesn’t stop, where people move on and we all go our own directions, it is nice to see some familiar faces from the past. And thinking of faces, in a job where I spend all of my time with disembodied voices (i.e., on the phone), it is nice to work with some on face to face. So those are my smiles for this week :)
So, what made you smile this week? Write about it and post on the link-up (or click the little blue frog below). While you’re there, read what everyone else is smiling about! And come back to it later, if last week is any indication new smiles will be added daily!
Note – the weekly smile runs Wednesday Morning to Wednesday morning. I post in the morning (Eastern US) and put up the link usually between 7 and 8 AM EST. I also try to post on Sunday as a reminder. People can and do join throughout the week.
