I have a coworker who prefers to interact via the phone. Anyone else know someone like that? It's apparently a throw back to the way her company did business prior to merging with ours, and while I understand that, it's starting to get a little old. She called me this morning while I was away from my desk. I listened to her message, and then IM'd her, but she was apparently away from her desk at the time, and instead of losing any additional time on the issue, I just sent her an email that included by request, and answered her question.
Did she respond to the email in kind? Um, no. Of course not. She just tried calling me again. (Again, I was away from my desk, so I missed the call.) And she left me a message, and I bet you a gazillion bobillion dollars that she talks some more about the shit I already emailed her about, and then at the end, asks me to call her back when I have a second.
No. Just...just answer the email, yo! That's all! In fact, all that needs to happen now is for her to send new meeting invites to my boss, really. So reponding to the email would be a little silly in itself, I'd think.
Ok, I'm going to go listen to the message now. And those of you who prefer to do inane and stupid business shit over the phone? Just respect that about 75% of the population fucking haaates the phone, ok? I don't wanna chit chat with you about the weather where you are, and I don't care if you think it's faster to do shit over the phone, because IT'S NOT. I sent my email this morning at 9:30. It's currently 1 p.m., and I still don't have new meeting invites from this person. What is she waiting foooorrrr? Permission from God? Jeezy!
