Is it okay?

No it is *not* okay to phone a stranger whose details you've found on the internet, at ten to midnight on a Sunday night, demanding information.

Of course I'm going to answer the phone when it rings at unsociable hours, because it might be some kind of family emergency. But if all you want to do is find out more about bellydance classes, then it can and bloody-well *should* wait for a more reasonable time of day.

THE HELL???

I'm with you, if the phone rings at some strange time I *will* answer, because I have elderly parents and so forth. But to find out about classes? SERIOUSLY?

I wonder if they were a scammer calling from Randomonia, with no idea of what time of day it actually was. I think I've heard about that cheque scam being done by phone before...

No she was definitely wanting information about my Guildford classes, which haven't run for over a year. So it wasn't even worth my while talking & being nice to her.

2:00-2:30am to find out why she couldn't register for our event. Called 3 times. Caller ID told me it wasn't family with a dire emergency so I just let her go to bed and answered her 2 frantic emails in the morning (plus the angry note from her husband on FB).

It's not that serious lady!
