As mentioned earlier in my blog, I’m now working mostly from my home office. So far, settling in has been rather smooth except for the phone headset situation. I recently purchased a new corded phone with a descent speaker phone. It works pretty well except while in speaker phone mode the first few syllables of the ‘low talkers’ gets cut off.
I’ve been experimenting with a headset that Vdot gave me (she had a bunch of spare parts), but
1) I can’t hear well unless I’m pressing the earpiece into my ear — in which case, I might as well be using the handset, and
2) Try as I might, I can’t figure out how to hook the dang thing onto my ear without folding my ear into a contorted position — which then causes it to get super hot due to the blood rushing to it.
As Will T. accurately put it, “What animal did they test these things on?!”
