I can’t cut a straight line to save my life. Yes, in the thrilling world of administrative assistance, there are times when projects require a return to 6th grade and using scissors and construction paper. And just like it was back then–I aim for consistency–I have zero ability to cut a simple, straight line. I read somewhere that my inability to do the latter means I think outside the box. Which, in my little world, according to solely me, might also mean that I’m a genius.
Let’s investigate further, shall we?
- Filling in those circles for standardized tests and questionnaires? Like this? My pencil/pen goes so far outside the line that I’m invariably answering the next question without realizing it. Clearly genius.
