FREE WRITING

6
i don't want the
receptionist
to hear my squeaky
voice
as i stumble over
my words
as my
breathing quickens
a ton of
"uh-huhs"
but i really don't
get it all
i have an 
appointment
at three
okay
bye now
press the 
red
end call button
and curse myself
with bitter tears
how could i be so stupid?

    I relate so much. I remember the first time I had to be on a call, and my mom would just glare at me from the corner like "Why don't you greet the person? Why are you acting so awkward?"

    This has been me for so long but I've had to get used to calling people cause I GOT A JOB THAT IS LITERALLY DEPENDENT ON CALLING PEOPLE. *Face palm* remind me again why I accepted that job?? XD
