I’ve Found My Calling

The title of this post is for my Mom.
I called her two days ago and said just that: “I have found my calling… as a tow truck dispatcher!” LOL

Nick’s boss and his wife are on vacation for the next two weeks, leaving him “in charge” of the whole company while they’re away. So, he asked me if I’d come in and help him with the phones, computers, and dispatching tow calls to him.

I packed up the kids and a zillion toys, books, food items to keep them entertained for a 12-hour day in the shop, and went. I admit, I was a little nervous at first… Five minutes after I arrived on site, Nick got called out on four different calls, all at the same time… leaving me alone to run the Towing Empire!!! EEEEK!

But a few hours later, I called my mom and said, “I’ve found my calling!”

I haven’t worked outside of my house in over 6 years, so I was a little intimidated. But, WOW! I’m having a blast! It’s so much fun to get up every morning and have to get dressed and GO somewhere!! Even more fun to answer phones and talk to other adults and maybe answer their questions correctly! I get a little bummed when someone calls asking me to price an exhaust system or headers and I have NO CLUE what they’re talking about and have to hand the phone over to Nick or take a message so he can call them back. DARN. Defeat!

But, all in all, this is a really fun experience for me. I’m looking forward to the next week and a half… “playing” work is exciting for a girl who’s been a SAHM to two babies for the past 5 years.

So, if anyone needs a tow or a tire change or a price for some headers in the next week… give me a call! I’ll hook you up! šŸ™‚

    Oh, I bet it is nice to get back out into the world of adults! I sometimes wish I could, but I do enjoy being a SAHM so much!

    Have fun at your job!
