For Crying Out Loud, Just Say Something

Real Estate Sales Representative with Sutton Group Summit

We are all staring at our smart phones days and nights. From the age of 1 to the age of 99. The phones are ringing, beeping, and making all sorts of sounds to be noticed. So, why on earth don't we respond?

Why on the phone, via text or e-mail cant we be polite just like we are in a face-to-face communication?

You received documents, or information, or e-card - just say "thank you"!

Someone asked you a question - just respond something, acknowledge, tell them you are working on getting the answer and will get back to them later.

Your phone rings and you cant answer? - text message takes 30 seconds and half a finger move to send - just let them know you are still alive

You don't know who you are ignoring so don't ignore. In any case those are people and people don't deserve to be ignored.

Good morning Marina.  My grandson does not answer his phone when I call.  However, when I text him is response is immediate.  It is what it is, find out how your client wants to communicate and go with it.

Good morning Marina Gavrylyuk .     I know what you mean   I remember when I was a child and the phone rang, every one would run for the phone   Now a days it's almost like people can't be bothered to answer the phone.   I hope you have a great weekend, thank you for sharing

I so agree! I never use to respond to Face Book likes and comments but I do now. The cell phone I always answer or send a text to say I can't talk right now and I make darn sure I call them back.
