Until I discovered the business practice of saying "we're playing
phone tag" to make sure the other person knows you have called, I used
to just try two or three times before leaving a message.

When I gave that reason today for my phone call, the person I spoke
with said, "Tag, you're it!"

I thought that was a great extension. BB
