Just today I became embarrassed upon realizing I mistakenly called an employer whom I have an interview in the coming week. Apparently, pocket dialing is a common issue many people struggle including friendship issues, relationship issues, and…work issues. I feel I could prevent this from happening if I only knew to erase recent call and voicemail history on my phone. I will definitely erase calls on a regular basis and allow to become habit since the outcome of preventing embarrassing myself is worth way more than not. Today’s experience came way too close to having to explain why I exercise the word “crap.”
Phone and software companies are working to provide better apps and phones to prevent pocket dialing. Yet, some of us will have to take precautionary measures to keep from accidentally calling someone who may inadvertently hear us at our worst. I not only struggled to land the interview but now worried I may have destroyed any chance of making a good first impression. Will I still go to the interview (many asked already). YES! Regardless if we accidently pocket dial someone, we must suffer the consequences and work through these embarrassing and maybe even harmful events. Has anyone ever pocket dialed you? Have you ever accidentally pocket dialed someone that landed you in compromise?
