Does anyone else still use the phone?

Had a rather excruciating telephone conversation today with a press officer of a, well, let’s call it a major organisation. I’ve already had plenty of those 10min conversations setting out my questions, only at the end to be told: Great, so if you could just set all that down in an email we’ll get back to you…. But this was a new one… and rather left me wondering if the telephone is now passé in much of the world…

  • ME: Hello, could I talk to SUCH AND SUCH please?
  • THEM: Can you email her?
  • ME: Er, well I’d like to speak to her if that’s possible.
  • THEM: Email is best.
