The Base Needs To Be There If You Want To Touch It.

"Touch base" is a silly saying if you think about it. Who had the first thought of saying that keeping in touch with someone for business purposes was "touching base?" Sounds vaguely pornographic IMHO.

Regardless of the terms origin I attempted to touch base with The Company I interviewed with last Tuesday. I got a message that stated no answering machine was hooked up to this phone line and if you want to talk to actual human beings I need to call on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday.

Okay I'll call Wednesday, but someone was there on Tuesday last week. This job hunt gets difficult in the most unexpected ways.
