“View From My Window” by Pastor Everhart I made a call to set up an appointment with a tax guy (it’s like making a dentist appointment for your money – even if it goes well you come out numb for a while & it’s never painless). The receptionist told me I have to talk directly to the preparer but he’s with another client: “He’ll call you back in a few minutes,” she says. I have another call I want to make but do I wait for the taxologist to call me first (he can’t make an appointment with my voicemail)? It’s twenty minutes later & I could have made my other call twice. Forty minutes later I get the call for which I’ve been waiting. While I’m on the phone scheduling the appointment my phone is buzzing with an incoming call. The tax guy is telling me he’s booked solid for the next two weeks but has a few openings the following week that he expects to be snatched up quickly (he specializes in clergy taxes: the IRS has special rules for ministers that require special preparers). Talking to this guy is like talking to a doctor or lawyer so I dare not put him on hold to get the next call. Luckily the incoming caller leaves a message. I get off the phone, listen to my voicemail, call the person back to answer their question and of course…I get their voicemail. He texts me back that he got the message I left in response to his message. I grew up in a home with a party line (if under 40 Google “party line telephones”). Back then we couldn’t have a private conversation; today we can’t have a real one.
