Do You Take Your Cell Phone with You to the Bathroom?
The other day I had to take a little potty break. I went to the stall and set my phone down on the top of the toilet paper dispenser and did my thing. I then looked over at the phone and thought....hmmm...if it should ring, would I answer it now? I am thinking it wouldn't be really professional to be talking on the phone whilst doing what I was doing at the moment...so why in the world did I bring my phone?
This brings up a little story...I was once talking to a lender at my home. While doing so, I was walking around picking stuff up and I happened to pick something up in the bathroom...I put it in the toilet and flushed. As soon as I did that, I realized what the lender must have thought. I started laughing and said...honestly, I wasn't doing what you think I was doing. I know I had to have been a beautiful shade of purple and red! I was that horrified that he may have thought that I was using the facilities while talking business! He laughed and said that I would be amazed about how many folks actually do go to the bathroom while talking to him...mostly men (his words, not mine). That astounded me.
Anyway, back to my point. I say that I am always available. I'm a 24/7 Realtor®, but really, I can't be. It's not humanly possible!
Available in the dictionary means suitable or ready for use, of use or service; at hand. Clearly, like the situation above, I am not available 24/7. If I could be, trust me, I would. There are times that I must use the restroom, sleep, eat, spend time with family or any other myriad of things such as being with another client. Accessible on the other hand means easy to approach, reach, or speak with. I am definitely accessible meaning I am easy to approach (well, unless I am in that stall, that would be weird), reach and truly easy to speak with. You can call my cell phone and leave a message if I don't answer and I will most definitely get back with you as soon as I am able. No worries, I usually answer my phone...just ask anyone...I am extremely quick about it.
So, I have decided from now on to leave my cell phone out of the bathroom. Aren't you glad knowing that I won't answer it while I'm doing that?
