the church secretary

a typical conversation:

sweet, well meaning church person (swmcp): "i know you! you're the ... what ... aren't you the church secretary?"

me: uh ... yeah, i'm the office manager. [smile sweetly]

swmcp: "oh wow, do you manage very many people?"

me: um ... one. but we're hiring another if the budget passes.

swmcp: "congratulations! so, do you have an office?"

me: aahh well ... no. but i'll get one when the building project is over. (sweet smile is now desperate)

this job is good for my pride.
