“We apologize- your approximate wait time is 11 minutes.”
If I’m lucky, they will offer to return the call … in 11 minutes or more… but I won’t lose my place in line! Yeah, right… how do I know that and where is this line? I’m a strange person that loves to stand in line!
Anytime I see a line of people, I simply get in the longest one and start talking! It’s a great place to meet people and learn how their world is different from mine. Sometimes I find a person I can help, if they are open to it. Sometimes they need to know what I have learned, but they just don’t know it yet. Always, I learn from them. It’s a matter of listening.
So, how can I stand in line for 11 minutes while I’m on the phone… waiting for the approximate moment someone will answer? Let me check on my online friends… who is standing in line with me today?
WORK WHILE YOU WAIT PROCESS:
Send a PM to Billie… “Wanna do lunch? I have something new to share!”
Applying fragrance alone makes waiting better! When I’m in an actual line of fellow humans, a soft fragrance always evokes curiosity! If I need to talk business, maybe a conversation will begin.
LOVE a Facebook post of Zanders then follow up later today with a call. “Got time to visit?”
TEXT a great story to a follower in the northeast. Her son has his first date tonight! Hope it goes well.
EMAIL Polly about her new outfit. What a snazzy design! I wonder what she’s up to these days.
POST Birthday wishes to everyone…. There! Done!
There, I made swift work of keeping in touch while I waited for my turn in line.
Oops… 10 minutes… gotta get my thoughts back around the person waiting to give me news. (I gave her some pointers and I’m waiting to hear about her success). I’ve worked my way near the front of the line, I trust! I wonder what I will learn about the personality on the other end of the line?
