She might be blonde
Not sure about you, but there are certain things you take for granted as a boss.
The first is that your employees will respect you. The second is, that although everyone has a good laugh, they think you are reasonably smart.
Well, that was all thrown out the window today.
Bart... the delight Bart - from the Netherlands, is doing an internship in Marketing Eye's Melbourne office, and has given us a few laughs today.
A distinctive language barrier, backed by a thirst to learn everything that is Australian, Bart had a few choice words, which I don't care to repeat.
However, I couldn't help but laugh to myself when I shared with a few interns how this woman kept calling after I asked her not to. She was trying to sell recruitment services and in writing I had informed her that should we utilise the services of a recruitment firm, we would only utilise that of a client's company.
She continued to ring three (3) times.
How frustrating! Eventually I took her call and reiterated my position.
I got off the phone and shared my frustration.
Bart said, "she might be blonde!"
I couldn't help but laugh - so am I.
