People who don't call back drive me crazy.
Now I'm not talkin' about the people who get a cold call. First of all I don't make cold calls. And when I get them I don't call those people back either. (Most of them don't feel rejected because it is just a recording.)
What I'm talking about is when I meet someone; we chat; agree that we want to meet later. More times than not, they don't have their calendar with them. We agree that I will call them later. They give me their card to do so.
I call them to initiate the setting of the "chat" appointment. Usually I have to leave a message. Or I email them. Or I do both.
Heck, if they don't want to meet, it's OK with me.
Please, just call me back and tell me to get lost.
I'll even give them a line to use. "I'm really busy right now, why don't I call you back at the end of the month?"
Why is this so hard?
