I have a clientele.
There are regulars who have called me pretty frequently, over the months and years. They've had their problems, and they've all found that what they've really, really needed was to talk to someone about them. Someone they know won't come back and, well, spill the beans to their loved ones.
I'm always going to try and listen. Sometimes, I think that listening is probably the only thing I can do, and possibly the only thing they need of me. Which is fine, because these are a regular clientele, so I must be doing something right.
I only hope I'm of help to them.
Perhaps I ought to try a job as an Agony Clown ...
