It's the call we all wait for.
"I saw your listing, at 123 Main Street and would like some
more information about it. Please call me at fawtwonineohfawehto."
Now. I do understand - really. It's your phone number, you've repeated it at least a thousand times and you know it really well. But, I have no idea who you are. You haven't left your name. My caller ID is coming up "Name Unknown" and your phone number, pronounced as a single word, was spoken at the speed of light.
Usually, after playing back the message six or seven times, I can discern all the numbers. However, it would be a lot easier if you just slowed down, when leaving your phone number.
I wonder how many calls have not been returned, simply because the phone number could not be deciphered.
Next time you leave your number, pretend you are speaking to someone who has just learned the language. Slow down and enunciate! You just may get that call-back.
