After a break, Howard came back complaining that his automated phone system had stopped recognizing his voice: “I tell it, ‘Call home,’ and goes ‘Beep. Call car?'” Howard said he went into Gary’s office to try the phone in there and had the same problem – plus another one: “Lisa G, Tim, Shuli – they all hang right outside [Gary’s] door…It aggravates me…they all get mad because I’m not standing there talking to them. But I don’t have time. That’s some gaggle.”
