Phone Etiquette

Can we talk about this?  Allow me to get up on my high horse...errr...ugh....ahhh...oof...

Ok, I'm up here.  Man, it's fun up here!  Now....

Here's the gist:  Someone not employed here left something on our property.  I have made several phone calls and messages to that person.  Finally, I got a hold of said person today.  I had called and left another message with her secretary and she called me right back.

Her: "Well, I'm glad I finally got you.  You're really hard to get a hold of."  Please don't start a conversation off like that.  It makes me immediately hate you and not want to help.
Me:  "Oh, I'm sorry (translation: you're rude), did you leave me message?  I don't have one on my voicemail or email?"
Her:  "No, I didn't leave one.  You never answer your phone."
Me:  super irratated, "Well, I have a lot of appointments and am on the phone frequently,"  yeah, it's called WORKING.  Did I mention that I'm doing you a favor?  I have a small office and could have just as easily thrown out your item.  Did you say thank you?  I'll let the readers guess.  If you guessed that she didn't say thank you, you are correct.

Anyway, through modern marvels I can check my phone log.  No missed calls in the past two weeks from my new BFF.  I have to say it...really?  Check yo self.

Wow, wow.

You should have pulled a "Hello? Hello? Are you still there? Hello?" and hung up. ;)

Why do people not remember caller ID? I have been trying to get ahold of you! Really? What number are you calling? I don't see you on my caller ID logs.

Stoopid people!
