Phone Etiquette

ACCEPTABLE

ME: Good afternoon, Holly speaking.

THEM: Hi, can I talk to Bill?

ME: Bill’s gone for lunch, can I take a message?

THEM: Sure, have him call me back.
UNACCEPTABLE

ME: Good afternoon, Holly speaking.

THEM: BILL

ME: Bill’s gone for lunch, can I take a message?

THEM: What do you mean, gone for lunch? How DARE he go for lunch! Doesn’t he know that the earth revolves around me and my schedule? I don’t give a shit if there’s a two hour time difference! Knock the sandwich out of Bill’s mouth and GET HIM ON THE PHONE!*

 

*I may be exaggerating slightly.
