I got called by a client at 7:30 this morning, and just got called now - it's 9:50 PM. I didn't answer this evening, I let my voice mail get it (thank God for Caller ID). Considering this is Saturday, I'm not real pleased with this. The same client called me Sunday evening at 10PM. These were not emergency calls either.

This is really aggravating, but seems to be common in my business. Since my business phone is my cell phone AND I use it for personal calls, I don't have the option of turning it off. I was at a seminar today with the owner of another engineering firm, and he gets the same hassles. Personally, I could never call someone I do business with on weekends, much less at 7:30 AM or 10:00 PM. Sheesh!
