(The phone rings.)
Me: “Good morning, [Company].”
Caller: “It’s [Client]. Can you give me [Coworker]’s mobile number?”
Me: “Of course; let me look that up for you.” *I take literally five seconds to find the number, giving them ample time to prepare themselves to receive the information that they have specifically requested. I give them one last chance, just to be sure.* “Are you ready?”
Caller: “Yes.”
Me: “07…” *I get interrupted!*
Caller: “Hang on a minute, let me get a pen.”
(This happens way, *way* more often than it should.)
