On Greetings

May 15, 2009

It always amuses how people greet me when I’m answering the phone at work.  The range and variety is almost as amusing as the lack thereof. 

My absolute favourites are definitely when someone opens with “Hey, how’re you?” … and then launches into the cause of their call without actually pausing for a response.  I inevitably find myself torn between Just Doing My Job and cutting in to answer the question they asked regardless of their persuit of the actual content of the call…  After all, they did ask.
