Even though I'm a freelancer, the decent thing to do if you're going to call me after dinnertime, particularly when it's hardly an emergency, is to apologize for interrupting my evening before you barrel on with your request. Thankyouverymuch.

I totally agree with you. I especially hate it when people call after 10pm to talk about work, when it is hardly an emergency.

That's why you should never give work your mobile phone number.

Well, I'm a freelancer with no fixed office and hence no office number. The cell phone is really the best way for clients to get in touch with me.

Fortunately, most of them have the decency not to bug me after dinnertime, emergency or no.

one thing we learnt was to ignore/off the handphone during lunch/tea/dinner hour. if they really wants you, they can call again... :)
