[BG]I am the State Sludge Program Manager. Yesterday I participated in a webinar. The subject of the webinar was Biosolids 101. I told the clerical staff in the front office that I would not be available to accept phone calls, even though I was sitting at my desk, because I would be plugged in to the webinar.[/BG]
The senior secretary said, "Junior Clerk said that webinar is so boring she almost fell asleep."
I blinked. Huh? I thought, "Why would Jr. Clerk participate in a webinar on biosolids?" Then I remembered that this was the first broadcast, so Jr. Clerk could not have participated previously. So I say to Sr. Secretary, "I don't think it is the same webinar."
Sr. Secretary says, "Hers was on processing purchase orders."
Why would Sr. Secretary think I would participate in a webinar on POs?
So I replied, "Mine is on biosolids." <shrug>
Why would she assume I was going to attend the same webinar as a Jr. Clerk when our duties have nothing in common?
