“Anything else before we close the call?”

dogs I’ve been working from my home-based office for about a year now. I’ve been meaning to setup a new blog category to report my work-from-home (WFH) challenges and successes, but just haven’t done so. I will tho’…soon.

Anyway, a funny WFH thing just happened. Since I program manage several different projects, I host a LOT of phone calls. Before long calls, I usually bribe my dogs (Lola & Ellie) to be quiet by offering them disgusting looking but apparently yummy pig ears on which to snack. I usually close a call with this phrase:

“Anything else before we close the call?”

I just realized that my dogs have been interpreting this as “OK, doggies, time to get wiggly in preparation for going outside to do your business!”

    HI ASHISH!!! 😀
    Until they develop opposable thumbs so they can code like you, you still have them beat. 🙂

    Lola, left, is a greyhound. Ellie is a mix of all doggies gone bad: pointer, dalmation, beagle & who knows what. Both are adopted & a couple of the best dogs in the world. 😀
