She's still panicking. "How did you find out about all of this???" I tell her I just got an e-mail from a man named "Shamus" who is the Senior Accounting Manager. She then asks, "Are you SURE he works at the company???" I tell her I'm POSITIVE, then I check our directory.
Not found. There is no Shamus at Big Fish.
There's no way I can tell my wife that... so I lie to her. "Yes, he's in our directory. He works here."
I have to admit that I got a little nervous when I couldn't find the guy's name, but the e-mail was sent awhile ago so I figured he just left the company.
That all happened yesterday afternoon. This morning I'm standing with some guy at the bus stop near my house and after a few minutes we strike up a conversation. He tells me he works at a Vancouver developer called Z2Live (makers of "Trade Nations" and "Battle Nations"). I tell him I work at Big Fish Games and he says, "Oh yeah, I know Big Fish. In fact, I recently hired a Senior Account Manager from there named Shamus Williams."
True story. What are the odds???
