Something I notice:
When my colleagues who seat next to me are not around,s ometime their phones can just keep on ringing and ringing and ringing…
I just wonder does the caller have brain at all.
Firstly, if I am on my desk and if I can answer the phone, it will not take me 3 minutes of ringing to decide whether I want to answer it or not.
Come on, it does not take you more then 5 rings to know that the person on the other side is either:
1) Not at his desk
2) Couldn’t answer your call at the moment as he is busy
3) Don’t want to answer your call
4) Is irritated by your persistence and therefore see point 3)
Persistent ringing not only waste your time and it also cause the people around the “recipient” office to go crazy.
