Contact list woes
I'm spending quite a bit of time talking to some of the caregivers and feeders from the estate to compile an updated list for the town council. The town council has had this list from a few years ago as I mentioned, but they wanted to have an updated list as some people may have moved/changed their areas etc.
What was originally meant to be an updating of the list has turned out to be a major exercise in persuasion. For example,I just got off the phone with a feeder. She does not want her number given because she does not want the town council to call her home too often as her husband will object. However, she wants me to put down another feeder's number. The funny thing is that when I spoke to the other feeder, she wanted me to put this woman's number down and did not want her number used. It's compounded by the fact that both of them are not talking to each other, so they're both urging me to put the other person down as the contact.
Now the second feeder is complaining to me about the first feeder and telling me that she is difficult and does things badly. Sigh.
I think I won't be able to use either of them in this case.
