"Who Are You?"
When you have made a telephone call and the person responds,-or
when you are answering the telephone, why not at once announce
who you are? " .
When you answer the telephone, say, for example, "Adams &
Company, Mr. Adams speaking."
The old way of shouting, "Hello ! ' ' is inelegant and rather rude, and
fortunately is fast becoming obsolete.
Say who you are, at once, when telephoning;
That's the courteous, up-to-date method. Eliminate abrupt, and
meaningless questions, get right to the point, and start the conver
sation the correct way. . r
