Wait — let me get something to write on
This drives me bananas! Someone asks “give me your telephone number” and when you say my number is 856…….the person says “wait let me get something to write on.” Did they not think this process through?
Or, you get a voice recording that says “your call is very important to us.” Then why the hell haven’t your returned my call.
Or, you get a voice recording on your own machine from someone who says please return my call (then gives their call back number in a fraction of a second). And you reply the damn recording 4 times to get the entire number.
Ok, I’ll step down from my soapbox now and return to my cave.
