Please, please, no more requests for a post explaining how to make friends on the telephone. This was sorted out years ago. I was appalled to learn that my own phone-using technique is 1/20 as good as example A.

    Be sure to give the person you’re calling sufficient time to answer his telephone. Wait at least a full minute.

    Yes, I know I’m very frustrated when I’m down the ol’ asbestos mine and the tele-phone machine tinkles and I’m all, “Hold your pants! Hold your pants! I’m shimmying up the shaft!” only to be bitterly disappointed to hear the tele-tinkle cease just as I reach the talking machine 🙁
