I had Merhost for almost a year. I started it as a platform to host my friends and my many websites. I didn’t intend it to be a business although I front it like one.
While at work today, an international number called me. And you know how expensive international calls are.
So this guy with a heavy accent called me for a ‘business talk’. I handled it really badly. I was thinking about my phone bills and my boss who were sitting a few feet behind me.
I told the guy “not interested” and hung up. He called again and I said something along the lines of “do you know that this is an international phone call?”.
Think the dude was pretty upset because he asked why I hung up his call and he wanted to talk to my manager, which is me. In my defense, I said “not interested”. I told him I really was not interested and ended the call then.
I felt really bad. I should have let him said his piece and then tell him not interested. 🙁 one minute of international call shouldn’t cost that much right?
