Phone Etiquette? March 13, 2008

Posted by Mistress B in Friends, Funny Stuff, Random Thoughts.

Typically when I answer the phone I say “hello”.

Some people answer the phone by simply saying their name.

Commonly in workplaces, the business name will be stated followed by some kind of greating. For example “Blah Blah My Business, Bettina speaking”.

In Japan they say “moshi moshi”

The other day, when I answered my phone, I barely get the word “hello” out when I am answered with “Fucking Bitch”

Apparently, so I’m told by reliable sources, this is how you greet one another on the phone in New Zealand.

Interesting people those Kiwi’s. Interesting people.

Just thought I should warn you, dear readers, for if you should ever happen to encounter this strange phenonema on your own phone. It’s not a crackpot prank calling you – it’s just a cheerful Kiwi, greeting you according to their local customs.

And what will you be doing in the bath WS – or should I say what will HE be doing to you ????? Hmmmmm, the mind boggles.

34. Bettina - March 14, 2008

the better question is what will her husband be doing?

35. Erin! - March 15, 2008

LOL you girls are naughty!!

Ooh and seeing as you all have your broderie anglaise wear out, can you send me some patterns, i bought nearly 20 metres of the stuff to make my lil Boo some pretty dresses and tops and have matching wavy broderie anglaise lace with pretty ribbons to thread through it. So then she can go climb trees, roll in the sandpit and destroy them all like I did mine at that age. I ruined my best one climbing a six foot picket fence about ten minutes before having to go on stage at my piano recital, my mother cursed at me that she hoped I would have a daughter just like me, and GOD THANKYOU WITH EVERY PART OF ME, I GOT ONE AND I SAY THANKS AS MANY TIMES A DAY AS I CAN REMEMBER TOO!!

Oooh and as for the innocence, lol I wont darest comment on that!!! ROLMVFAO!!

36. Erin! - March 15, 2008

Ooh bath photos, lol are they really really really incriminating??? I loves that sort, have several of them put away in a safe hiding spot just incase I need to incriminate siblings, exhusband or my children at a later date. I am thinking the 21st birthday party for the childrens pics, so their friends and future spouses can see what cute baby bums they had and how cute the soap mustaches looked.

37. Bettina - March 15, 2008

want me to send you the bath photo?

Dunno what your DBF will make of it though………….

38. Bettina - March 15, 2008

Dunno what your DBF will make of it though………….

39. river - June 21, 2008

Yellow is an accepted phone greeting. Red, purple and green are not…………

40. river - June 21, 2008

And why are you all going nuts over a photo of a bath tub? Hmmm?

41. Bettina - June 21, 2008
