Sesame Saturday: Ernie’s new job

The Count hires Ernie to answer his phone.  It’s not as easy as it seems.

For nearly the past seven years, I worked as a medical transcriptionist for a local orthopedics clinic.  Then, unfortunately, that particular job ceased to exist.  (And then it sort of came back, and then it went away again.  It’s a long story.)  

Then I got a new job with a nationwide transcription company.  Suddenly I’m processing reports in from all over the country, in all different specialties.  It’s a bit like having spent seven years wading in a kiddie pool, and then suddenly being thrown into the deep end. It’s exciting, it’s frightening, it’s challenging, it’s frustrating, it’s exhilarating, and it’s bewildering, all at the same time.

It can be a bit like trying to answer the Count’s phone.  But whatever else it may be, it is certainly not boring.
