Pet Peeves

We all have them.

I’d love to hear yours.

But first? I have to share something that just happened that annoys the crap outta me.

Some of you may know that I make a living in the phone. No I am not calling you to disturb your dinner and no I’m not the owner of a racy 900# line. I talk with businesses all day. I also hire people to do the same.

In addition to being able to talk, the skill set requires you are able to listen. So imagine how much I love it when a potential applicant calls and this is how it goes :

Phone rings:
Me: {company name} – this is Shelley how can I help you?
Caller: may I speak with Shelley?

Uh no. You weren’t listening.

I take the call though to give them the benefit of the doubt and hear what they have to say.

Then the next pet peeve

Caller: I was told to axe for you because you are hiring.
