Twice in the last year I've had a call coming into my phone. Right as I am answering, the call goes dead. That's no problem, except that when I call back, the two different people who were calling me both have the same response:
"Sorry, I had a call coming in on the other line."
Really? I realize that I personally feel belittled, so maybe that's a reason for the rant. But you called me. You initiated the call.
If you can't use technology and care for people along the way... throw it out.
If you have to pick up the next call no matter what, I think it's time to go without a cell phone.
If you can't prioritize the person you decided to call, then who can you prioritize?
