Chirpy Me

Y'all know... I've got the Voices. This manifests in real life by the way I develop certain ways of dealing with things.

One of those is the "Secretary Voice". So dubbed because it first manifested when I was working on my first summer job as a secretary for the sales department at hnu Systems.

The voice is very chirpy, cheerful, polite. The minute I use this voice, my personality changes to match it and I don't have to worry about saying the right thing. Suddenly, I'm politically correct. Of course, I'm also as sweet as saccharine.

I've been calling people today to determine how they are maintaining addresses for mass emailings. And I've been completely, and utterly, chirpy. Think Brittany on Daria but not braindead. Have you ever seen the episode where she is trying to teach Daria not to sound so down? Brittney counsels to end every sentence like its a question because it makes you sound cheerful. That's what I sound like.

The funny part is, normally my voice sounds a hell of a lot more like Daria.

that's friends all say that when i answer my phone at work..I use that "voice" - "Hi, this is Jennifer...blah blah" and as soon as I realize that it's not work related, I back to normal "jenny voice" - "hey dude, what's up?".

guess i have the "voices", too.
