why i'm never taken seriously:

picture it...

i'm in a one-on-one appointment with someone i admire, and look up to a great deal, when my phone starts ringing. i quickly try to silence it, but instead accidentally answer it and place it back into my bag. i continue on with my conversation until i hear a man yelling from inside my handbag. i realize my mistake, terminate the call, blush and move on. if my ring tone wasn't aqua's "barbie girl" song, it may have lessened the humiliation factor.

i've GOT to start remembering to put my phone on vibrate, of all people you'd think i'd have that mastered.

Years back, I used to have a phone ring that clucked like a chicken. At one point it had gone off during a job interview. It was embarassing but funny. The job was offered so the interviewer must have liked it too I suppose. :)

Sarah--

Rookie mistake! As a professional salesman, I am proud of the fact my cell phone has NEVER gone off during a meeting.

People these days don't know how to turn their phones off. It's just another leash! I leave my phone off, well, most of the time.

Call me. I'll answer for you, I promise.

Helpfully as always,

Mikey

I just love it when I stick my phone in my pocket and forget to lock it.

Here is the usual conversation, "you called me the other night, you were talking about..."

Someone is always listening.

I could hear muffled voices and it did sound like your phone was rustling around in your bag. Sorry about that - if I had known you were in a serious meeting, I wouldn't have yelled!
