I know, I know, don’t look back; it’s over.
So my child had been calling the crisis hotline in the middle of the night- (when she wasn’t keeping us up) and clearly that wasn’t so helpful.
Tonight, she was on the phone with tech support- this is what I overheard.
Man: Hello there! May I have your first name please?
Man: Hello (pronounces it with a short vowel instead), how are you today?
Kid: I’m tired. Fine.
Man: Yep, life sucks.
Needless to say, now she’s got some alternatives should she need them in the future.
