You Can't Win Them All

I shouldn't have been so proud of getting through to Comcast last night.  I just got off of a conference call, and since it was my first time, I didn't understand the etiquette.  Apparently Doug had just finished saying something when I joined, because there was a long pause, and I wasn't sure if I had entered the code properly.  "Hello?  It's Sam.  I've never done one of these before... is this working?  Do I need to do anything else?"

It turns out they had already started, and pretty much everyone else was already there.  It wasn't until a few people joined after me that I found out you're supposed to announce yourself by saying, "Sam Zhao has joined."  I choose believe that my introduction was more unique and personal.
