When is your call cut-off?


I was listening to some fun nonsense - aka filler - on a local radio station while waiting to pick up the kids from school. It was about: what time of day is your call cut off time? What is your start call time? And, how do you tell people what it is?

The hosts encouraged people to call in and express themselves.

After listening to a dozen or so calls, WOW, am I ever wrong! My call times are: weekdays start at 7AM end at 10PM; weekends start at 9AM end at 10PM. Clearly I'm starting way too early and ending too late! But then again, I'm in a hockey household. We must have different rules! Most of the calls were 10AM to 8PM. Interesting.

No one mentioned how they tell people what it is, but they did say how they blasted people if they called to early or late! So to all of you I've called too early, or late, I apologise.

What are your call rules?

I have to say the telemarketer calling at 6:45 the other morning was a little early!

Hey, my calling times are 7:30 am - 9:00 pm on weekdays and 9:00 am - 10:00 pm on weekends. That being said, when are the times for people to expect you to return an email that they have sent either late in the evening or very early?

I thought I didn't have any, with email and texting, no one really calls here anymore. But I do resent the people who call after 8pm, especially when my favorite show is on. 9 time out of 10 I will let it go to the machine, and if I don't know the number it always goes to the machine. So if your calling my house and I don't know your number please start to leave a message and I will happily pick up to talk to you (unless it is during Survivor) LOL. (kidding)

I would say 8am to 11pm.
If you call me after 11pm, you better be bleeding from your eyes! HAHA. Kidding. If the phone rings after 11, I jump because I think there is an emergency. Same if you call before 8am.
