Yeah I know, not exactly a topic I ever planned on writing about. Here is the back story...
With the amount of phone screens I do this happens to me 1-2 times a month (I am not flushing, I get flushed on).
UPDATED: it could be this happens to me more frequent as I tend to have a higher than average number of calls in the early morning, when folks are just getting home or late at night.
I know what you are thinking… who the hell does that?
Usually it is:
the highly distracted
those trying to multi-task
those who forget to hit mute
those who have no damn common sense
The last time was a couple of weeks ago. A lady meant to hit “mute” on her phone. I was giving her the pitch about my client so she thought she could answer natures call while I was flapping my jaw.
Fair enough, I get long winded or as I call it “over communicate”.
The thing is instead of hitting “mute” she hit “speak phone”.
I have no clue what she had going on but what I heard did not sound “normal” to me.
I kept talking, no need to let her know that I know more about her than I need (ever wanted) to.
After flushing and putting herself together she looked down on her phone to hit “mute” and realized the speaker phone was on.
In a very soft voice I hear her say, “Oh, crap”. (enter whatever you are thinking here)
That I know she realized it was good enough. I continued to play along as if nothing ever happened.
Moral to the story:
Never, ever “take care of business” when taking care of business.
