E-waste and Best Buy

As a former location scout myself, I follow with great interest the blog Scouting New York.

This one really caught my eye as it pulls together advertising, recycling, location scouting and NYC - all things near and dear to my heart.

A Little Etiquette, Please

etiquette |ˈetikit; -ˌket|
the customary code of polite behavior in society
Here's one that crossed my mind a few weeks back. It's short and sweet and a good way for me to ease back into the blogosphere.
When you telephone me at home, and my wife answers, before you ask to speak with me, make a point to exchange a pleasantry with the lady of the house. "Hello Steve's wife, this is Bob. How are you? Did you have a good Christmas? Well, that's lovely... Is Steve available?"
There, wasn't that easy? Unless it's an emergency and you've no time for pleasantries, I find it terribly rude not to acknowledge or greet the person who answers, especially if you know them well.
