Journalist griping

Ok, so there are several things that annoy me about being a journalist and dealing with the public.

One of them, however, is when people say something like “I’m on the other line, can I call you right back?”

And then they don’t.

So you are just sitting around, but you don’t want to call anyone else because you don’t want to miss the call from the original person.

I wrote a story while I was waiting, but still, I hung up over an hour ago. But I have to wait another hour or so before I call again or I will just look like a bitch. Which, if it were closer to press time, I would be totally ok with. But as my deadline is not for another day and a half I will let it slide.

This time.
