Each year, I make it a point to call each parent and tell them something positive about their child (I usually do this in early September). It starts the year off on a positive note. Anyway, here was a conversation from this evening: Me: "Hi. May I please speak with Mrs. _______" Lady: "Nah. She ain't here." CLICK. I didn't even have an opportunity to say who I was or where I was calling from. She didn't give me a chance. I know it was her, too, because I didn't call the house phone--I called her cell phone. This has never happened to me! I was calling with good news, too! UGH!
