Phone interviews blech

Okay, I'm weird.

I really hate phone interviews. Yes, you get more than by an email interview. Yes, you form a better relationship with the source. But no matter. They are a pain in the ass. Cause than they know you and have your phone number. I had one source who contacted me forever. Forever! Wanting me to use him in more articles. Etc. Talk for an hour each time. Also... you have to make sure you call or are at home at the right time. You have to be prepared. Instead of just emailing it whenever and then getting it back and using it when you want to, you have to beready to talk about the subject at hand on someone else's schedule. Plus with email interviews I get a hard copy of every quote you put in the article. Every one. See, Mr. Lawyer. They sent this to me and in good faith I reported it. Plus, okay, another weird thing. I just don't want to talk on the phone unless I want to talk on the phone, you know?

Yeah, if you can't tell by my infantile complaining I have to do a phone interview today.

Sigh.

No, I don't think it's an infantile complain. I hated interviewing people through phone. Of course, I'd tape the interviews, you know, just in case they complained later. *lol* Hope your phone interview went well. *g*

I hate talking on the phone in general for the most part. I can't concentrate.
