My phone rings.

I answer it with " Hello Elfred here"

Caller "Is that Elfred?"

WTF :rant:

Happens about five times a day :(

Same thing happens to me at work.

"Good morning, (company name), Simon speaking"

"Is that Russell?".

People - open your ears! :rolleyes:

They say "Is that Russell?"

You say "Who did you want to speak to...?"

They say "Russell..."

You say "Hold on..." (put phone down for 15 seconds)

Then answer "Hello.. Simon speaking.. ." :D

people aren't ready for that........they are ready to hear 'hello' and then ask for the person they want - you are confusing them ;) :lol:

One company I worked for we had to answer the phone

Good morning / good afternoon, thank you for calling ****** technical sales, Howell speaking how can I help you.
(or some borrocks like that)

:rant: 9 times out of 10 you'd get interrupted before you finished, but the management were not happy if you changed it. :rolleyes:

I have the same company ringing me on my mobile periodically trying to tell me I have been sold PPI I didn't need. I have repeatedly told them I have never had PPI and not to ring me ever again (not my exact words you understand). They seem to know better than me though and I am expecting another call from them (a company from Liverpool) in the next few days.

No but sites require you to wear a corporate hiviz ;) well mine do at least.

I watched a bloke get out the lift and with a huge 4 about A4 size in front of him asks, "is this level 4?" to which I said nahhh, it's 3, but someone had told him before my response sank in :lol:

All depends, when we work on Sainsburys all contractors have to wear an orange 'Sainsbury Contractor' vest.
