Text message

There’s a time for emails, a time for text messages and a time for phone calls. Seems the younger folk tends towards messaging more and more. I’m still a fan of good old fashioned phone calls though! Especially when dealing with clients, you can solve problems in a couple of minutes that would otherwise take three emails back and forth. And even if they pay me by the hour, I just can’t stand wasting time! Then there’s clients who call separately five times a day. The first call is to tell me they’re going to call me later.

Anyway, I don’t know where I’m going with this, I’m just rambling! But I’m running out of time to tie this up with some rethorical bow, so here you go. Hope you like today’s comic! 🙂

    I reckon it is a matter of personal style and preference. If people call me for a meeting, either professional or private, I may say yes or no on the phone, but a yes will be followed by a request to confirm per mail – if only to support my memory, which was never my best faculty.

    Would have been even funnier if Julio had actually been actively using the rivet gun 🙂

    And I guess we all know that guy. The one that will always elicit a reflexive NO, regardless whether you know the question he is asking.

    I regularly get phone calls from clients while I’m doing something else…
    My standard response, “Send me a text message with the details”.
    OTOH, I get text messages from clients while driving & they get upset when I haven’t answers the text. So they call me to get my attention. & I tell them to “Send me a text message with the details”…
