TMI...and then some.
So we have an information and referral line at work, where we give out information for support groups, etc. Because we have a small staff (two full-time and one part-time), my boss and I end up taking some of the calls when we don't have volunteers to staff the line.
I had two calls Friday morning from this guy just wanted to talk - giving me waaaaaay too much information. After I gave him some support group information (that was the reason, supposedly, that he had called,) I kept politely telling him I wasn't qualified as a therapist so he really should discuss these issues with his counselor (he had one.)
TMI is TMI! "this woman stomped on my heart, and my brother told me she was just after my paycheck and my dick!"
Mr. RK said, "At least she wasn't just interested in his paycheck!"
Said my friend Ms. J, "That's right! Money isn't everything."
