#SoCS Oct. 29, 2022 – Element

Linda’s SoCS prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “element.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

When I read this prompt, the word element brought up one funny story from my call centre past.

I had not been working there long, but we were a small, tight team of 6 who worked in an enclosed area. We all had our spots and didn’t disturb each other, but it also meant we were able to hear each other’s conversations when there was a lull.

One day, one of the others was talking to a customer about a specific coffee machine (I used to work with a company that dealt with the catering helplines for Nestle and Nescafe, Kellog’s, McVities and KP, and General Mills!) and why it would be best for that particular customer.

“Yes, Sir, I believe you should go for this one because there are three main elephants…”

She was also pregnant at the time and had been saying how big she was feeling just before answering the call.

The rest of us collapsed into giggles because she had meant to say three main elements!

How she kept herself composed for the rest of the call, I don’t know, but she did, only to turn around after ending it with a pink face, exclaiming “Elephants?!

I know. It was a ‘you had to be there‘ kinda story, but it still makes me giggle. 🤭

    Oh, this is so funny, Ritu. I put my car keys in the fridge when I was pregnant with Greg. I only found them again when I was hungry.

    Although I wasn’t there, I can very well imagine that moment from both sides, yours and the person who said it… lol
