I was at a client’s location today to check on a couple of minor problems they are having with their new computer system. The owner of the business hired a new person who was having a hard time adjusting and wanting to use certain programs. After some discussion between me and the owner, the new employee became aware that I was working to be able to give her the programs that she was used to using. The conversation went something like this:
New Employee: I love you. I’m Jane.*
Me: Uhm… I think love is just a little too much, too soon. I think we should at least know each other’s names first. I’m Mark.
N.E.: Oh, Ok. I’m Jane. I love you.
The owner and another worker were there and were laughing at the whole thing; which I also thought was funny.
