This little telephone tip has a sweet subliminal effect on the person you’re talking to—or at least wards off a sour one. Even after you’ve both said good-bye, let the other person hang up first. Why? Because people don’t like someone to “hang up on them.” And when they hear your click, it gives them an, albeit irrational, subconscious sense that you did just that.
Whether you believe it or not, why take a chance? Whenever talking on the phone, let the other person hang up first. It only takes a second, and your “good-bye” is a sweeter last sound to their ears than CLICK.
