Do you know what bugs me? Bad phone manners. I rang up somewhere today to find out some prices and they answered with “Fhathy dasskit plbuoof”. I couldn’t understand a thing they said because they said it so fast. I replied “Excuse me?” and they said the same thing, except this time much faster. I asked for the place I was ringing and they said “Yeah” (finally a word at normal speed) and then I asked about the prices.
That really bugs me. When answering a phone, you should say “Good morning/afternoon/evening, [Name of business]. [Your name] speaking, how may I help you?” and say it at normal speed which people can understand. Otherwise I might be put off from buying products/services from the company you work for!
