Businesses Returning Phone Calls

I left a message for our mortgage person at the bank on Monday morning regarding our refinance. I haven't heard back.

I left a message at a dance place Tuesday morning regarding sending DD to their summer camp. I haven't heard back.

Both are time sensitive. Our refinance rate is only good through May 7th and the summer camp's early registration discount ends May 1st.

How many days pass by before you start to wonder if anyone (business-wise) is going to call you back and so you call them back, perhaps making yourself out to be a demanding pest?

  • I would expect a call back within 1 business day. If I don't get it, I'll do a phone call saying that I will be stopping in if I don't hear from them withing 2 hours. Amazing how this works for me!

  • I wait one day and then phone the business again. I remind them that the matter has a deadline.

  • Depending what time of day I originally called, I either call back with about 1 hour of business left that same day, or first thing the next morning. I won't let things go for days like that.
