always being: ready to talk when I answer .
telephone calls from you.
" If there is Anything that does irritate me in the
course of a busy day, it is to have some office boy
or girl call me to the telephone and then ask me to
wait one, two or five minutes, as the case may be,
until some unknown telephone caller is ready
to talk with me.
I believe it is the responsibility of the man who is
calling to be ready to talk as soon as his party
We should never take a chance on losing friends or
business by unnecessarily irritating anyone we call.
It is not only more courteous, and better business
practice to hold the line until the party answers,
but I believe in the long run it SAVES TIME."
