How it is correct to communicate with an answering machine?

the Idea concerning writing of this article arose after an exchange of comments about the material How to conduct telephone negotiations? Rules of etiquette the author - Irina Pikalova what I express gratitude to Nadia Gayeva for.

So, you called, and there is no owner or the hostess the house. But the answering machine is included. You, naturally, have two options: to call back later or to leave the message. Many prefer the first as they are lost from - for inabilities to communicate with iron Felix . Actually, everything is not as terrible as it seems at first sight. For communication with an answering machine it is necessary to follow certain rules which I submit to attention of the dear public.

10 rules for leaving of messages on an answering machine:

1) Wait for the end of a sound signal.

2) Wait a second pause

3) Be presented.

4) You speak on average speed, accurately and articulately.

5) Briefly state the main point, without going into unnecessary details

6) If you call a phone number which is unknown, then it is better to say it, giving each number separately 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 0. Will not be superfluous, for control, to repeat it twice.

7) You speak naturally, you shout, but also do not whisper -

8) If you call in the official organization, remember it in time communication .

9) If you decided to engage in hooliganism and tell any mucks on an answering machine, then remember that phone can have ADN (Automatic Determinant of Number) on which you can be found easily.

10) Do not laugh as from - for laughter it will be impossible to understand what you told to the owner.

I in conclusion - a bonus - the most ridiculous records left on an answering machine (with the Caucasian accent).
