The Social Reality Challenge

You’ve had a long day at work.  You get home, turn on the computer and escape into the lives of others.  

How was their day?  Did they get the promotion at work?  Did their kid finally go #2 all on his own?  Let’s see those vacation pics!  

You may even share something about yourself.  

Here’s what’s for dinner.  Look what my dog did today when I was gone!  Boy, I can’t wait til Friday, we’re gonna get wasted!!!

 It’s all fine to share our lives and see what that person from middle school is up to (granted they live 3 miles away from you and you have not seen them in 15 years.)  My question is, how come we don’t share anything that’s real?

Thanks for calling, please get to the point!


Me: Thank you for calling Prestissimo Music, how can I help you?

Caller: Yes, hello.  My name is Mrs. Ma Non Troppo.  My daughter Largo, goes to Canon High School.  She plays cello and just got back from solo and ensemble last weekend.  She got a blue ribbon!  She used to play viola until she fell in love with the sound of the Cello and has played it ever since.  My younger daughter Larghetto, goes to D. S. Al fine Middle School.  She started playing the violin last year.  She took home a red ribbon at solo and ensemble!  The both have a concert this week on Thursday at Adagissio Auditorium.  I wanted to ask you, what time do you close today?

Me: Six O’clock.  Is there anything I may do before you get here that I can help you out with?

Caller:  No that’s all I needed to know.  Thank you!

Me: Ok…  Thank you for calling, have a great day…

Click. (The click was from her.  I’ve been taught in sales to always be the last to hang up, just in case there’s that “Oh, one more thing.”)

REALLY?!
