A story from  Jenny

 

All my life I have followed rules and obeyed instructions.

It hasn’t made me happy. It hasn’t made me rich.

It did make me feel safe. I never had to worry about who I was or what to do. I just watched and listened carefully, and acted with due caution.

Not that this made me popular. Only in small doses do people prefer a nonentity.

However, it worked well enough in my job in a busy call centre. I had a pleasant speaking voice – thanks to Mother and her insistence on elocution lessons. Customers asked for me more often than for any other operator. So often that eventually I got promoted to call centre manager and never spoke to them at all.
