“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.
I know someone who would be terribly embarrassed while I do my “line thing”, so I try to shop alone. The samples in my bag or the business card in my hand never take away from the store owners objectives because I love to shop at successful businesses!
They have the longest lines, you know.
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?
Send a PM to Billie… “Wanna do lunch? I have something new to share!”
LOVE a post of Zanders then follow up later today with a call. “Got time to visit?”
TEXT a great product story to a follower in the northeast. Her son has his first date tonight!
EMAIL Polly about her leggings! What a snazzy design! I wonder what she’s up to these days.
POST Birthday wishes to everyone…. There! Done!
Oops… 10 minutes… gotta get my thoughts back around the person waiting to give me great news! 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?
