I'm not psychic, tell me who the hell you are.... [Jul. 12th, 2005|02:10 pm]
Verminius Rex
Ok, so I'm dealing with Kiyan and get a call.
"This is Jill from the club."
"Pardon?"
"This is Jill from the club."
"Which club?"
"You know, the Kansas City Science Fiction-"
"Ok, that club."
I belong to more than one club or organization. When you call, state the name of the organization your are with or how I would know you, and I'll be able to figure out who the hell you are. Especially if you have a name that probably belongs to more than one person I know, like John, Jack, Jill, or Judy.

That is my rant for the day.

I know what you mean! I always find that people call for Aaron and then decide they will just "call back another time" instead of telling me who they are. If they have, oh, interrupted a diaper change or woken someone from her nap, I insist on knowing who they are. But I have had people say "yeah, this is (common name)" and wanted them to clarify. Of course, I can't tell the difference between my mother and my sister on the phone, so that has led to some very interesting conversations.

Yeah, I hear ya. I get annoyed by
a) complete strangers who call and act as if we're oldest, dearest friends, right before they try to sell me something
b) complete strangers who dive right into a conversation as if we're oldest, dearest friends, only to discover that they have a wrong number
c) messages from people who leave their name as an unintelligible mumble and then race through their number as if it's the least important thing they have to say.

Lately, with Mike's teenagers in the house, I'm getting messages like, "Oh, some woman called a couple of days ago. She wants you to call her back." And who might it have been? "I dunno. I didn't ask."
