If I have to take a business call, I try to find the quietest place to do so. Which is why I was in our “design studio” yesterday for a call. Earbuds in. Noise minimal. Totes professional.
About ten minutes into the call though, it seemed like the call was dropped.
Me: Hello? …. Dan? …. Are you still there? …. Can you hear me?
Me: *looks at phone and confirms that the time is still ticking away and the call has not been dropped*
Me: Dan? … Are you there? Hello? Dan?
Me: *confirms once again that time is still running … call still connected …. ?!?!*
Me: Hey Dan – I can’t hear you at all, so I’m going to have to hang up and call you back.
Me: *hangs up on Dan*
Keith: (YELLING from our front entry) I JUST STARTED THE CAR (in the garage … directly below our design studio) AND THE BLUETOOTH CONNECTED TO YOUR PHONE! YOU NEED TO SWITCH THE AUDIO ON YOUR PHONE NOW BECAUSE DAN’S TALKING TO ME IN THE CAR!
Me: (YELLING back) NOT ANYMORE, I JUST HUNG UP ON HIM! DAAAAAAAAMNIT!!!
Me: *call back last number … hangs head in shame … confirms Dan has an excellent sense of humor*
