What-if Thought: Yes. This is Fax Tone speaking.

When:  The other day

Where: The office

(phone rings)

I pick up and answer.

Me: “Hello…”

(voice cuts me off)

The Other End:  “Fax tone, please”

Me: “This isn’t a fax machine.”

(line goes silent)

I put the phone down.

What I should have said:

(phone rings)

I pick up and answer.

Me: “Hello…”

(voice cuts me off)

The Other End:  “Fax tone, please”

Me: “Yes.  This is Fax tone speaking.”

Thought of the day:  At this modern age, have we forgotten proper telephone etiquette? Sheesh!
