Talk About Office Extensions!

Posted by Dinky Mind on Friday, July 29, 2011 in , ,
So here I come again with another of my workplace stories.

For the first few days of joining office I didn't know what my phone extension was. So, on the third day, when Dinky Mind finally started working, I dialled zero, and asked the receptionist what my extension was. 180. Wrote this on a Post-it note and pasted it on my phone set so if anyone asks I could tell them without putting my tiny brain through recall-trauma. I also made a one-page post-it extension directory and pinned it on my soft board above the phone (sadly, we don't have glass panels to stick post-it notes on).

So, the real story began 4 days ago when my phone rang and I picked it up:

Me: "Hello!"
Caller: *pause* "Umm... okay, sorry!"
and the line goes dead.

Next day:

Me: "Hello!"
Caller: *baffled* "Uh... oh!"
and the line goes dead.

Another day:

Me: "Hello!"
Caller: *silence*
and the line goes dead.

On the other day:

Me: "Hello!"
Caller: *pause* "Umm... is this Mr. XYZ?"
Before I could even think of a reply, he'd hang up, realizing what a silly question he asked!
And a second later, I would hear the same voice yelling, "Mr. XYZ, isn't your extension 180?"
And a distant voice would respond, "Nah, 181!"

Grrrr... Hello! Make a directory!!! Or borrow one from someone and get it copied! And also pin it up on your board! It's so annoying. The desk I'm using was not occupied by anyone for the past few months. And so was the phone. And so 180! I sometimes wish to have a Caller ID on my phone. :( I hope I don't get such "accidental" calls again :/

Cheerio folks!

PS: Do I really sound like a Mr.? :(

Hmmmm! Seems like someone is trying his luck :p


Nopes. The voice wasn't the same every time.


i am assuming u dont have a digitial display on ur fone and people can not store numbers in a address book on the phone :P or for that sake look up peoples extension on their online profile (if ur company is using office Outlook that is)...

Isn't it funny how when we dial a wrong number we have a tendency to just keep the fone on someones face instead of saying im sorry i must have dialed the wrong extension i was trying to reach mr XYZ. :)
