The Dropped Call
Posted on July 5, 2012
“Can you hear me now?”
“Darn it I hate this phone!”
This is the traditional litany of the dropped cell phone call. Neither partner ended the call voluntarily. You still have the juicy bits of the conversation to convey. You look contemptuously at your phone and momentarily wonder if he/she is going to call you back or if you should re-engage the call. Hmmmmm.
Rule: Whoever initiated the call is the person who should make the call-back.
