Your Wednesday Afternoon Etiquette Question

Posted By on Wed, Aug 2, 2006 at 3:41 PM

-- So let's say you're, oh, I dunno, an editor. And someone calls you and leaves you a message, wanting to sell you professional services of some sort. And you call that person back ... and get a busy signal. And you call back a while later, and get another busy signal. The question: How many times do you have to try calling back this person before just throwing your arms in the air and saying, "Screw it!"?

-- Follow-up question: Since call waiting costs, like, four bucks a month or something, what kind of punishment should befall people who don't have it, yet expect you to do business with them?

-- And on an unrelated note: A new issue of the Weekly's here. Enjoy!
