Product Overview

Written with the laugh-out-loud humor that can only come from someone well acquainted with the mishaps of everyday corporate life, "After the Beep" is a highly entertaining, always amusing selection of real-and really outlandish-communications delivered via the information superhighway all day, every day in our world of real-time messaging.Filled with humorous vignettes told through e-mails, text messages, and transcripts of voice mails, "After the Beep" will ring with familiarity to anyone who has experienced the strange and unusual communiqu?''s that result from the confusing quagmire of America''s convoluted corporate environment. Seasoned businesswoman Kathleen Heck pokes fun at people through their follies and inane comments while depicting how work life in America can turn innocent messages into ridiculous directives.Each entry is followed by Heck''s witty commentary, providing a gut-busting sketch of daily corporate life. From the mundane halls of a stodgy mortgage company to the overly exuberant newsletter of a college athletic department, "After the Beep" captures the true comedy of supposedly professional communication gone hopelessly, and hilariously, awry.
