This week I sprang into action as an adult after a series of awful events erased everything I've worked on. Thank you to my tech friends for having the tact to shut the fuck up. It's important to remember that I am the marketing director not the CTO and that when my eyes are filled with tears I don't want technical advice - I want a hug and a beer.
THE TO-DO LIST
The week ended well when I met with the folks from Stylemob. Cofounder Sasha Cagen just wrote a book called, "The To-do List" - a series of lists that reveal who we are.
As a communications person, I wrote a list of the worst things I've ever said or written:
- I'm sorry, we have not seen your son in 2 months
- It appears you do not qualify for financial assistance at this time. Do you have temporary housing?
- We are taking steps to rectify the issue of the uninvestigated infant deaths
- You have been in contact with someone suffering from HIV
- While they recovered more than 100,000 pieces of DNA evidence, your sister was not a match. They will call as soon as they locate the body.
THE GIVING THANKS LIST
- My Love and Best Friend
- Cool Friends
- Supportive Family
