Sometimes phone calls can drive you crazy and the same time you fell guilty of hurting someone. All you need to do is foreplan before picking up the ring. You can end the calls in many ways. It is just the matter of a few plans ahead like this way.
While speaking you should sound as if you are in a real hurry and make sure he/she is convinced. Show that you really want to hear but you are busy cooking or cleaning the household. Don’t put down the calls abruptly, the other end will get to know this.
Just announce that you have other guests to attend and go to the door bell and press the bell. You can also put something like this in your conversation that, “before we hang up” I want to tell you that….this should give them indication that you are over with the conversation and want to get off from the phone. Tell them that you need to feed your baby; she is crying, go sit next to baby.
Try to be busy, sound as if you are somewhere in the crowd. If there is someone who always calls you up, don’t answer every time. Convince him that you are not always at home or if it’s on mobile phone try to switch off now and then. Please make sure they don’t catch you. So, you have to sound really busy. Let them know that you will call back sometime in the future.
When you speak be polite and firm otherwise people wont accept your excuses. Say something like, I have so much to do but have very limited time. Convey them that you really value time. Whenever you get calls and especially when you don’t want to talk but you don’t want to hurt them as well, in this situation think of a very good reason to hang up. So, that you don’t hurt the person and he/she is convinced with what you tell.
Phone calls can be really crazy at times and it consumes a lot of time. In today’s life who has got so much time?
