I’ve launched a new “early intervention program” to help combat a perpetual social problem: someone new starts working here at The Guild and I never get introduced to them.
And then weeks pass, and I see them often, without really knowing who they are.
And then it become too late to introduce myself to them because, well, we’ve said hello to each other innumerable times, and to admit that I don’t know who they are would be embarrassing.
So today, upon seeing a new box office staffer in place behind the desk, I took action.
“You’re new!”, I said.
“I’m Olivia,” she said.
“I’m Peter,” I replied.
We shook hands.
So now I know who Olivia is.
Early intervention FTW.
