Question of the day

So I had to call around to see if I could get a better price on car insurance. Now let me tell you I really HATE talking on the phone to people I don't know. lol Just one of those little quirks about me I guess.
So I get out the yellow pages and start thumbing through, calling number after number. Giving the same nformation over and over again. After doing this sooo many times I figured out that what I'm paying right now is about average and I see no real reason to change, much to my hubby's dismay. lol
So When my husband see's me putting the phone book away after all the calls, he picks up the papers I had been writing on to se the different prices and then starts laughing. I don't really see whats so funny so I ask him. Hey, whats so darn funny?" He looks at me and says, why did you write down all this information? You see I wrote down every possible scrap of information I might need to tell the person on the other end of the phone.

So the question of the day is this....
Before making a telephne call, do you ever reherse or write down what your going to say?

  1. Sometimes if I have to call some place and I know I need some information i'll put it on the desk next to the phone, but most of the time I just make a call and then grab anything I might need, if I have it within reach.

  3. I too hate talking with strangers on the ohine , in fact I dislike the phone...period. I will reherse something if it's important just to fix the points I need to get across, in my head.
    Why don't you try an online insurance broker. You can get many quotes from one place and only have to cough up the info once. We got our mortgage quotes that way.
    Worked like a charm. Most of the brokers are no-fee as they take a slice of the pie at the other end..

  4. yeah online insurance. I didn't think of that. I called a bunch of places and it looks like I'm paying the least that I can right now. lol
    I found out that Albertson's grocery store delivers. LOL I would do everything online if I could but Ken won't let me. lol

  5. I order my groceries from Albertsons.com. Since I don't have a car at the moment I do it that way, so I don't have to take the bus and paying for a cab is the same amount as the delivery fee for Alberstons.com.

    I love it!
