Well, that was odd. A guy just called, whispering, and said, in that kind of "I'm so embarrassed" tone, that he had forgotten the Director's name. I gave it to him and spelled it. When Ann gets back from lunch, must ask what SF's title is and write it down, as someone asked a while back and i had to ask Ann and i don't now remember. I think it was Ms. because she doesn't have her doctorate and her surname isn't her husband's name (apparently that means you can't use Mrs.?), but i don't recall. He also wanted the exact title and address of the museum, which i happily gave to him, and he conscientiously repeated everything back at the end to make sure he had gotten it right. But he was whispering the whole time. *shrugs* Maybe he was ill or something.

Okay, back to the filing. When a file folder gets full and we thus start a new one, the old one is supposed to get a rubber band put around it so new stuff doesn't accidentally get put in it. These seems to not happen a lot of times, though, so i just rubber banded a bunch of files for this one lady and am reordering a bulk of paper from the front of the folder-directly-prior-to-the-current-one. (Is there a good word for that, like the inverse of "penultimate" or something?) Is it bad that i feel a certain sense of triumph or, more accurately, of "I'm so much smarter/better than the people who did this filing before me"?
