Pet Peeve – On the Telephone

By | Jan 23, 2009

Some of my Telephone Pet Peeves:
• Being put on the speakerphone without warning or for no logical reason.
• The common phone-tree assurance “Your call will be answered in the order received” and “Your call is important to us”. If it’s so important shouldn’t a live operator answer the call.
• Cold call sales reps who act as if they know you.
• Receiving fund raising or “Vote for me” recordings. Especially from local leaders using out of state services.
• Seeing a badly tangled telephone cord being used by a highly visible person (receptionist) of a business.
• Having a sales person placing me on hold to answer another call.
