This is what I'm gonna need for you to understand.....

I guess I'm going to have to do some 'splain' to a few customers.

My cell phone was charging last night. I don't turn it off, because to be honest half the time I'll forget to turn it back on.

Anyway - it rang last night. At 10:00 in the evening.

I thought it HAD to be a mistake. Then I heard the "alert" that I had a new voicemail. So I checked the number.

It was a customer. A customer calling and leaving a voicemail at 10:00 on a Friday night.

Ha! I laugh at his stupidity.

Now? The cell phone is off. And I will NOT listen to the voicemail until Monday morning. Nope. Not gonna give in on this one.

I'm awake and available from 6:00am to 6:00pm. Monday through Friday. I think that's pretty damned good.

10:00 on a Friday night? That's MY time......

Ha! I love that you're setting boundaries for the customers... heck, if you'd let 'em, they'd be working you 24/7!

Good for you! :)

That was one of the things that drove me to stop accepting computer support clients.
I actually got a request at 10:30 on a friday night to come out and fix a printer that was out of ink.
