I went to the docks and talked to some people for the Fishing Report. Our goal each time we go out is to talk to at least 3 people (or 6 in a week). We get $2 for each interview over 3 we get in a night.
So yeah, I talked to 5 people. First one was a woman, and it was fine, then a guy about my age, probably, who was BORING and monosyllabic, then another guy, then another guy, then another guy.
The last guy I talked to was AWESOME. Actually, the last 3 guys were pretty good, but the last one was the best interview of the night, I thought.
So, I bid them goodbye and drove back to the station so I could download the audio onto the computer and save it.
WHAT'S THIS I SAY?? ONLY 4 TRACKS?
Yeah, only 4 tracks.
And of course the one that's missing ISN'T Mr. Monosyllabic, it is, in fact, the last guy I talked to, the BEST OF THE LOT, MIGHT I ADD.
And I am not upset because I don't get $2. That is NOT IT AT ALL. I COULD NOT CARE LESS ABOUT THE $2 I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN. I AM SO UNBELIEVABLY UPSET that this guy, who was nice and funny and listens to the radio and WOULD HAVE HEARD HIMSELF ON THE RADIO WILL NOT HEAR HIMSELF ON THE RADIO BECAUSE HIS AUDIO IS MISSING HELP MY CAPSLOCK RAGE IS ON.
He told me that he's heard me on the radio before, that he listens to the Fishing Report, and he will probably keep listening to the radio now to try to hear himself but HE WON'T HEAR HIMSELF BECAUSE HIS AUDIO TRACK IS MISSING AND I DON'T KNOW WHY.
I honestly almost feel like crying. It might just be because I'm hormonal, but I don't want him thinking that I just didn't keep his interview for some reason. I don't want him to listen to the radio day after day thinking "Gosh, why have I not heard myself? Did that girl not like what I said?" I feel guilty even though I'm pretty sure it wasn't my fault...I'm (almost) 100% I had the recorder on, because I went from Guy #4 to him pretty immediately, I wouldn't have turned it off then unless I had a mega brainfart. I just have no idea where that audio could have gone.
