Just thought about this and not sure why.....

I remember this picture of a woman on rollerskates and she was rolling down a line of operators. I guess she was the office manager or something. It was when I was working at the telephone company and we were still on Mecobs which was partly computerized and partly manual yet. This was before the devestiture of '80 or '81 when all that changed and it all went computerized. It was when there was just this long black board and it had holes where the hotels came in and the coin phones and the residents too. We would switch into the hole when it lit up and anounce ourselves as the long distance operator and ask how we could help them.

One of the calls I enjoyed was the hotel calls. Well this other gal did too. She would take these calls all the time. One time I was talking to her and she was having a problem with a situation she had with these calls. The majority of these calls were from men. Probably salesmen and businessmen staying in town. She would get propositioned and her problem was that she was married. To me that wouldn't be a problem but for her she wondered if she should take them up on it or not and she was asking me my opinion. I ask her what she thought her husband would do in the same situation. She gave me the weirdest look. Now what do you take away from that?

Oh, it is so boring at times to try to find the right category that I just go with animal.
