    How the phone should be answered......

    Rules for the phone:

    How ALL business phones SHOULD be answered!


    GOOD MORNING, WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA .


    Press "1" for English;
    Press "2" to disconnect until you learn to speak English .


    And remember only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

    Jesus Christ
    and the American Soldier.

    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.


    Freedom is not free, and it is not a right... it is a privlidge and should be respected and honored.

    Jeez, I guess you don't do a whole lot of business with those native to the deep south.

    When Bell invented the telephone, there was quite a stir and controversey as to how one should "answer" a phone...

    Many phrases where thrown around and for a while it looked like "ahoy" was going to be the word of choice. But later "hello" became the one we are familiar with today.

    But that was in English.... Who knows how it played out in Spanish.

    Mexicans answer the phone, "Bueno!".

    My brother lives in germany, I may call him and find out how he answers the phone there. I'll bet is sounds gay if germany is europe.
