It's been a trying afternoon.
A customer put a stop payment on a check we deposited yesterday and we get dinged with the penalty fee. And the customer hung up on me. His ass is going to collection. And the invoice itself is less than $100. How stupid.
I'm feeling better but now I'm cranky. Adding to it, our receptionist keeps making mistakes and even though I coach her on how to do her job better and make of all her mistakes, I have to say it over and over. We're human, we make mistakes, but she doesn't learn or remember or something.
Steve's cousin Mikey is in town and wants to go to dinner this week. It will have to be either tonight or Thursday.
Currently reading LETHAL WHITE by Robert Galbraith. 4th of 4 in series featuring Cormoran Strike, a private detective, and his secretary Robin Ellacott, in London.
When Billy, a troubled young man, comes to private eye Cormoran Strike’s office to ask for his help investigating a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child, Strike is left deeply unsettled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed, and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story. But before Strike can question him further, Billy bolts from his office in a panic. Trying to get to the bottom of Billy’s story, Strike and Robin Ellacott—once his assistant, now a partner in the agency—set off on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive inner sanctum within Parliament, and to a beautiful but sinister manor house deep in the countryside. And during this labyrinthine investigation, Strike’s own life is far from straightforward: his newfound fame as a private eye means he can no longer operate behind the scenes as he once did. Plus, his relationship with his former assistant is more fraught than it ever has been—Robin is now invaluable to Strike in the business, but their personal relationship is much, much trickier than that.
