The Please Call Me Plague

July 29th, 2007 · Posted by Who Knows? · 3 Comments

So how do you feel about “Please Call Me”‘s?

It sounds to me like most people just ignore them, especially if they don’t know the number. Hehe, well, I’m a sucker. I always phone, even if I don’t have the number in my contacts… and I never do… and it’s always a wrong number. How absolutely absurd!

Well, I’m proud of myself today: I’ve broken that habit. I have left a “please call me” unanswered.

    My approach to this is quite simple: none of my contacts can’t afford to send an SMS if it’s important. Furthermore, I’ll phone back a missed call, but I view please call me’s as a tool for kids and low-income employees on pay-as-you-go packages to get hold of their parents/employers.

    So PCMs are totally ignored.
