Boy, you wanna get my goat just try answering the phone while you're waiting on me in person!! I've taken to walking out of businesses and then calling their corporate offices to explain.
I sell for a living...my phone is never answered if I'm with a customer. I tell all my new clients this and let them know that I return calls while enroute to my next stop.
If you take the time to do business with me you get my undivided attention.
That said if you wish to contact a USA based business from a long way away I suggest using email for economy and ask for a direct - no hold contact number. Any business wanting yours will understand this request... or not and then demonstrate not being worthy of yours....
Sorry to rant but you did get me started... just go about your business and ignore me.... it's o.k.
