I'm the secretary of a study society (student society..but then so-called study-related). To get money from the university so we can organise who-knows-what kind of activities, we have to have our memberslist in order. That means names, adresses, studentnrs etc.
When most of the people sign up for membership they don't know their studentnrs yet and half of the time during some time they get a new phonenr, move from house to house etc.
All in all this means that I either miss info or info is incorrect. So this is what I had to do: call every member where info was either missing or probably incorrect.
I've been on the phone for almost 2,5 hours straight calling calling calling. Talking to parents, getting 'out of order tunes', voicemails, people who finished their studies 3 years ago etc.
I'm half-way working my ass through the darn list so I bet there's at least 2,5 hours of calling left for me to enjoy. And the people I couldn't reach..I have to e-mail.
Oh boy oh boy oh boy..what a joy. The one good thing about this..I don't have to pay for the calls :)
