A Bit of Straight Talking.

It takes a lot for me to be able to pick up the telephone these days. I'm just about able to make myself understood to family and friends but it's a different kettle of fish when it comes to complete strangers or worse still - the dreaded answer phone.

I needed to leave a message for the speech therapist.

I dialled the number and waited...

Hello - You have reached the Speech and Language Therapy Service for ---shire'

Good. Got the right number.

' There is nobody available at the moment but if you would like to leave a message for one of the therapists please...'

Oh my God - surely not! It's not going to ask me to 'please speak clearly after the tone?'

' so after the tone, leaving your name and telephone number and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you.'


OK. Result!

Now, how long have I got...

    1. Hello - sorry I'm afraid I don't. Have you thought of putting it out on Facebook? There's always somebody willing to help and Twitter too perhaps.
