I called this organization last week and sat on hold for 18 minutes, only to be hung up on. Talk about discouraged! Today I called back, and I decided to play a game in order to alleviate that sense of dread. It's called "What I Did While I Was on Hold", where I list out all that I got accomplished while I was on hold. Ready? In 32 minutes and 34 seconds I :
- Ate a bowl of cereal
- Scanned Feedly for interesting blogs to read
- Read 4 blogs posted today
- Made my bed
- Loaded the dishwasher
- Watched 2 YouTube videos
- Filed paid bills in my bill binder (more in a future blog post)
- Checked Twitter
While looking at this list, I am amazed at what I can accomplish in such a short time. As a matter of fact, I typed this blog while on hold with another company (26 minutes). Now I wish they could run me my daytime minutes back!
I invite you to take the challenge and tell me about it in the comments section or on Facebook. Whether you are at work or at home, brag on what you accomplished while Muzak played on your speakerphone!
