I was talking to a journalist from a National outlet the other day who was delighted to learn I was from New Orleans. She then went on to talk about a story she is working on about something going on there. The problem, she said, is that it’s so difficult to get people to answer phone calls and emails. One of her interview subjects felt the need to inform her that people from New Orleans operate on their own timeline and that’s just how it is. I knew it was never just me dealing with this frustration, and it felt good to have that validation, but it’s also embarrassing.
No one thinks it’s cute.
I’m glad to be away from that and I’m looking forward to reprogramming some of those bad habits I had to adapt to. And if I can do it, anyone from home can, too.
