The Human Factors
In Good Service
There are three parties to every telex
phone conversation-the party callhng
the trained operator, and the party who
answers. All three share alike the espon..
sibility for quick and accurate telephone
The calling party should give the cow
rect number in a distinct voice, speak
ing directly into the transmitter, and
wait at the telephone until the party aa
swers or the operator reports. The called
party should answer promptly.
Patience on the part of the telephone
user and the telephone operator is also m
sential to good service.
