Here is why I hate calling admitted students.
A mom: "You guys were like calling all the time a while ago, and now when I want you to, no one is calling."
Lady. I'm calling you right now. We are speaking on the phone RIGHT.NOW.
A dad: "No he's not here."
Me: "Oh, no worries. Can I leave my number for him to call?"
Dad: "Um, well, I don't have a pencil here...could you just call his cell phone?"
Me: "Oh sure!"
Dad: "You know, I don't remember that number either...could you call back on Friday, after 7 p.m.?"
No. No I cannot. Also, I am about 98% sure he was just sitting on the couch during this whole conversation.
A student has hung up on me.
I had to tell two students, because they were SO AWKWARDLY hesitant, that they weren't going to offend me if they've chosen another school, which they both admitted they had, but never would have, had I not basically begged them to tell me (so I don't have to call them anymore).
And I had one mom tell me that "this is really a family decision...so..." I know. I'm not trying to butt into your decision making process, lady. I'm just trying to help.
I'm just trying to do what Eric tells me to, because he's my boss, and he is always very nice to me, so I should probably do this for him.
But for the record, I hate it!!! I'm taking my ring OFF of it.
