[Volume 7 Issue 6, #1438]
今朝打俾學校某個講師, 入咗留言, 未夠一分鐘之後, 佢竟然就打返俾我.. 佢肯定冇我電話, 打返俾我確實令我有點驚喜.. 可能只係我自己嘅想法啦, 因為如果有missed call, 而呢個號碼又唔喺我phone book入面, 我都唔會打返俾對方㗎囉.. 如果係有緊要事, 肯定會再打嚟或send短訊㗎嘛.. 而且來歷不明嘅電話, 通常都係啲傳銷公司打嚟㗎啦.. 咁你呢?? 如果有來歷不明嘅未接來電, 會唔會打返俾對方呢??
i called a lecturer this morning but went into voice mail, less than a minute later she return my call.. i'm very sure she doesn't have my number, so i was a little thrilled that she called back.. maybe it's just my perception, because if i got a missed call and that number is not in my phonebook, i will never return the call.. if there's anything urgent, he/she will call again or just send an SMS to me.. furthermore unknown numbers are usually tele-marketing calls in my case.. so how about you?? do you return calls to missed call bearing a number not registered in your phonebook?

    13. The ring was so famous back then, almost everyone watched it. My housemates also watched it with the lights off. I joined but I wasn't scare at all.

      Reason behind this: The language was Japanese and subtitle in Chinese - Both also I don't understand, so no scare, wakakaka!

      Delete
    14. the trick may still work one.. not that the girl will be scared and then stick to the guy, but guys also can pretend to be scared and stick to the girl mah.. like that can be more intimate inside the cinema lor, hahaha!!

      oh yeah, i remember we were watching The Ring, one whole gang of friends switched off all lights.. and the most scary scene was when the ghost crawl out of the TV~~

    2. How do you reject politely.

      I usually will listen for a short while and then firmly said that Sorry, I'm not interested but thank you for calling and then immediately cut off the line. xD

      Aiyoh, give them chance a bit lor. LAter kena scold by their supervisor.

      ALso, let them practice talk better to customers. SOme of them test my patience - so hard to read the script ah? If you cannot talk well, how to sell?

      Delete
    6. aiyah, sometimes i pity those telemarketers also lah.. that's just their job to call up people and i think 99% they are turned down.. so sometimes when i have good mood i will still entertain them, let them finish like at least 50% of what they are supposed to say, then only i politely reject lah..

  44. After I heard about the Hypnosis case through phone,
    I told all the ppl i knew especially my mum not to pick up the " Unknown " call.
    Quite scary.

  45. If I miss a call, I will text back. And if the person does not reply, I take it that t is some MLM or insurance thingy and will not pursue the number anymore. However if its from a known number, I will call back and follow with a sms if the person does not pick up my call.

  47. I've got a prepaid and I seldom put a load on it since I RARELY use it for calls and even SMS... just not so fond of it LOL

  48. but If i got that call more than twice.. then that is really something urgent or perhaps and emergency so I will definitely call him or her back

  51. anyway, back to your question, i guess it's a case to case basis.. if the number is not registered in my phonebook and called me once... i think i will not try to call him back but If i got the same missed calls from the same number then I would definitely return my call

  52. If only 1 miss call, I would not return.

  54. It also depends on the situation, whether I am free that time.
