This afternoon, things were a bit weird on the job. The main data transmission line to the site was kaput. The landline phones weren’t working and internet service was kaput. One of our IT guys was able to jury-rig a workaround by connecting his cell phone to one of the visitors’ center computers so ticket and retail sales could occur.
The shop clerk told me, “I feel bad for him, because that’s his phone, what if someone calls him with an emergency?” I had to laugh before I responded, “That’s his work phone, so the only emergency calls would come from here... he’s glad not to have it!” Poor guy had been here both Saturday and Sunday, his usual days off.
