I’m Happy You Know What You Know But…

A few things in this world you should already know how to do automatically.  Washing your hands after you go to the washroom, saying please and thank you and buying insurance.  However, there’s a few more things people should know how to do but don’t.  One of more important is…leaving a good phone message

You’d think this would be a no brainer.  “Leave your name and number after the beep and I’ll get back to you.”   Sometimes though, people do leave a message with their name and number as requested but they rattle it off much too quickly for the poor person on the other end of the voice mail to even hear it right let alone write it down.

Here’s the thing – it’s great YOU know your own phone number but chances are if you’re leaving a message that includes a phone number…that other person doesn’t already know it.  SLOW DOWN and lay out your phone number clearly and at a reasonable speed – people might actually return your calls!
