The phone calls I never want to make…

7 Dec

Difficult phone calls make me nervous. At the moment there are a couple of numbers that my fingers don’t really want to dial. People who have made me promises, people who haven’t delivered… part of me wishes that everybody (including myself) simply let their yes be yes and their no be no.

I remind myself that these phone calls pale into insignificance when I compare them to the dreadful phone calls I had to make as a Veterinary surgeon. It is important to ask questions first and to always remember that there are imperfect human beings on both ends of the line. I also believe that confrontation provides us with an opportunity to strengthen rather than weaken relationships.

Man I wish I didn’t have to make these phone calls…

    That is exactly the way I feel right now.
