A nice Thing!
Once in a while something happens that kind of renews your faith in human nature, at least a little bit.
Several days ago I received a business phone call from a potential client that was interested in some software that I have on the market. I answered her questions, and she told me that she would call me back in a couple of days, after she had given a little more thought to her software needs.
When she called the second time, I was out on a call, and she left me a voicemail asking for me to call her back at my earliest opportunity. When I got the message I carefully wrote down her phone number in my phone log, but I wasn't able to clearly understand her name.
I immediately telephoned the number, and got a recording. I left a message. I tried a few hours later, and got the same recording. I called again the next morning. Same recording. I tried again after lunch. No luck.
Shortly thereafter, my phone rang. A lady with a pleasant voice told me that I had been leaving messages on her answering machine, and that I apparently had a wrong number. She said that although it was a long distance call for her, she thought she'd give me a call and let me know, as it sounded important!
It kinda renews your faith in human nature just a little bit, doesn't it!
