We graduated from the “training” part of my job last week. These are the coworkers who started with me. We all work with patents that deal with chemical engineering issues. We are all nerds.
I did make the phone calls to the senators and congressmen that I mentioned a few days ago to ask for support for Rett Syndrome advocacy. I made three phone calls and someone (who sounds like they are 21) answers the phone. I make my request, “Hello, I’m Doris, I wanted to make an appointment with (so-and-so) to talk about an issue for the FY2009 Appropriations bill and ask for his/her support on this issue.” Then they redirected me to the office scheduler who I need to email/fax to request an appointment. So I sent out some emails Friday night, we’ll see what happens.
