for openers, the caller should identify him herself immediate^ ‘Hello, this is slir,,|,
Harding. May I please speak to Minnie /ack?”
If the caller knows the party who has answered the phone, it's good manners to ask, “And how are you, Sam?"
It’s had manners to quiz the person who has answered the phone concerning the whereabouts of the person you are calling: “Where did Minnie go? \nd when der you expect her home?" Simply leave the message that you called and ask that she return your call.
lf you realize too late that you have misdialed and reached a wrong number, don’t hang up. Say, “Excuse me, please. I have a wrong number.”
