NA   U   HG   SP   =   HANG – UPS 

Good Morning, Everyone!              📞 PHONE…BEMOAM 📞

🎶 DON’T HANG UP (No No)..Oh don’t you do it now, DON’T HANG UP...(No No)...DON’T HANG UP like you always do, I know you think our love is true…I’ll explain the facts to you, just DON’T HANG UP...🎶 “Don’t Hang Up” – The Orlons 1962     https://tinyurl.com/yyclrygj

📞 You have to have a certain KNACK to work a job like this,
It’s not a PLUMB position…rejection more than bliss.
The reputation’s SHAGGY, most people not too keen,
On being interrupted…that’s why we all call screen.
Four Telemarketers sitting, a SEPTUM does divide,
But two of them are more interested in who they sit beside…
Afraid of shadows, painfully shy…this guy’s in a real slump
Aggression’s not his selling point…he’s just full of HANG-UPS…📞

I didn’t expect to find SEPTUM in the Jumble LISTINGS, and it was a good CALL…since it’s making its’ debut today. As for our other words, they’re truly old favorites, with PLUMB from 2015, SHAGGY from 2016, and KNACK 2017. But it was SEPTUM that DIVIDED the Early Birds this morning…SEPTUM stumped ’em! …

Finding ourselves at a TELEMARKETING CALL CENTER, we’re LISTENING in on today’s cartoon dialogue. We overHEAR two co-workers, COLIN TODAY, and MAYA SPEAKWITH, discussing the shortcomings of a third. A fourth worker, I.M.BORED, can be seen beyond them, off to the right. The gossip has it that our main character, NOAH VALE, isn’t doing so well emotionally, hasn’t made a SALE, and is plagued with a growing LIST of “issues”. CENTERing in on Noah, we see him with a look of anxious desperation, and a single bead of sweat falling from his brow. We can hear him on the phone, saying that he used to be very shy, and that he’s afraid of shadows. His phone technique isn’t exactly a SELLing point. And we can tell from his dialogue that once again, he’s been HUNG UP on…So in answer to our question…What tells us that our guy has “emotional issues”? He had a lot of…HANG-UPS! Good CALL, David! Good CALL!

Ok, eye candy…The panel, shaded in beige, has black pattern showing on the cubicles. All three of our men are wearing white short-sleeved dress shirts. Colin, mustachioed and sporting a goatee, has on a red striped tie, while I.M. and Noah wear black ones. Maya has a teal headband to match her blouse. I.M. is playing with a Rubik’s cube, where we see some red, yellow, green and blue, and all four workers are wearing head sets. But if I had to MONITOR the panel and pick the HI-LITE? It has to be the LIST of seven names on Noah’s gray SCREEN, all showing X’s. They read: Carlucci, Hoyt, Kent, King, Knurek, Morgan, and Shortz…Names somewhere between SEVEN and SELL. So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And keep in mind…We all have HANG UPS...we just have to be careful enough not to get ROPED into things…📞🙋🏻
