At The Tone, Please Be Annoyed…

I am presently waiting for the person who scheduled this conference call to come on the line.  At the time I joined I was told by the perky machine to say my name at the tone, followed by the pound sign.  I can sometimes understand the need for having a record of who attended a conference call, but for small groups the need to say your name when joining the call is annoying at best.

I kind of doubt anyone actually does anything with the name recording, since we’re always asked who’s on the line when the moderator joins.  I’m sorely tempted to respond with “Annoyed” as my name next time to see if anything happens.

  1. This always bothers me as well.  Now I mostly just wait a second and hit # without saying anything.
