a helping hand

So I am meant to be off work this week. But my supervisor called me this afternoon in a bit of a panic, one of the other volunteers was having trouble with her p hone. She had nobody to do the calls that that volunteer was doing. So she asked me if I’d step in. I was free, I wasnt doing anything at the time. So of course I said I would do it. So I ended up working in the afternoon for about 2 hours making calls. It was a pleasure to do it for her. I wouldnt see her struggling to find somoene to do the calls, if I can oblige I will. The calls were easy, all of the clients were ok, It was great talking to them all. There was this one client, she asked me if I was knew. I said no, that I’ve been working for friendly call for the past 2.5 years. She then said to me how she finds it so hard to talk to people who she doesnt know. I could appreciate that. Because, I also find it hard to talk and open up to people I dont know, well especially in real life. So I did my best to put her at ease. She told me she was 73 and I told her that she didnt even sound her age. That made her laugh and she told me I made her day. But it was so true. There was no way I’d have guessed she was 73 years old. So I think we clicked after that. I enjoyed working today and there is a chance I may have to work tomorrow also.. Not sure yet but my supervisor said she’d call me in the morning if she needs me to work.
