Ever been told that calling someone is far more efficient than sending an email? As you know I completely disagree with that claim; trying to educate people it’s not the technology’s fault but the user.
I other words, people who can’t be productive with email are using it incorrectly and most likely are poor writers.
But I’ll get off my soap box regarding that topic today.
I just wanted to highlight that if making calls are do efficient, why do we depend so much on being able to be notified of missed calls on our phones and to have a voicemail service?
What made me again question the efficiency of using a phone is that I’ve lately received a few calls when I’ve been busy and unable to answer the phone. They have tried to call me several times, but they never leave a voicemail. Nor do they answer my texts.
A phone is more efficient my arse!
And yes, I don’t call back unless I know who called me. I’m sorry, but don’t communicate with people who can’t use communication tools properly. If you have to, leave a voicemail. Not to mention, answer a text if you receive one.
I only communicate with professionals, not armatures!
