Cell phone etiquette. I’ve been in situations where I don’t get a simple call back from a friend. I’ve been in numerous situations where I’ve been a jackass and forget to call people back. Last week, I wrote a post about how following up is uber important.
So I decided to come up with a set of rules for when you should follow up on missed calls. Following these rules will make you a better person I will abide by these commandments starting now:
1. A missed call from someone you know personally.
This can go either way. Either call back or don’t call back.
If more than one missed call, call back required.
2. A missed call from a number you don’t recognize.
Not required to call back.
3. A missed call AND voicemail from someone you know personally.
Call back required. ASAP.
4. A missed call or text wishing you happy birthday.
Call back required. ASAP!
Follow these rules and you will become super awesome among your peers.
