Have you noticed that people, in general, do not say goodbye anymore when ending their conversation on the phone? Many times it is, "OK, thanks" followed by a click. Where is the goodbye? Seriously, if you haven't noticed it, listen for it in your next few phone calls.
This is happening with friends, customers, vendors, etc. Everyone. And I get so mad each time it happens. Where did our manners go? Is it not important to say goodbye to end a phone call, that people can just hang up when they are done, and you might not be? How is this ok to do anymore?
Really, saying "goodbye" is only 2 syllables, takes less than one second to say. Am I not worth less than one second of a person's time? Are you?
I feel like I should call the person who just hung up on me and just say, "goodbye" then hang up on them...that might be just as rude, but at least I said "goodbye" before hanging up.
I'd like an explanation from people who do not say goodbye anymore. Maybe I can be less angry each time if there was a good reasoning out there. Maybe.
