Perhaps you can suggest a new approach. Frankly, I
get mystified at times. Caller says "we have birds slamming into our windows
throughout the day. We recently bought a new bird feeder at Lowe's - wait...now the birds
are dive bombing my car parked in our driveway. Help!"
Naturally I paused before answering - I was hoping her own words might
reverberate in her head a bit. Then I proceeded to tell her briefly about several possible
reasons for the behavior and solutions that we had to offer. When the caller said that
none of the ideas sounded appealing I felt like imitating Jed Bartlett, legendary leader
of intelligent governance on TV's West Wing: "next!".
Instead I muttered something about our store hours and suggested to the
caller that she stop by when time allowed. She said that she was too busy - which lead me
to wonder more about why exactly she was calling.
"Perhaps the birding specialists at Lowe's have a more acceptable
solution for you," I said.
