The CSSC man came a-calling. I listened - it sounded good, but I let it go. He came a-calling a year later. I listened again - it sounded even better, but still I did nothing.

Another year passed, I listened more intently. It seemed stupid to ignore, so I had a proper look. Why did I wait so long(?), when the decision was obvious. Years lost, but a future to be gained - I joined. Good call.

So glad the CSSC man persevered. Tell your colleagues - I have. Nothing to lose, so much to win. So glad the CSSC man came a-calling!
