I don't have an answering service. I just roll the calls over to my cell phone. I don't find this a problem, though I know other docs are horrified at the idea.
Anyway, while I was frantically trying to finish dictations, I rolled the phones over myself, then dialed back in to make sure it was working.
Then my cell phone rang, and I immediately grabbed it, saw the number looked vaguely familiar, and answered my own call.
I'm so glad Mary wasn't here to see this. She'd be giving me crap about it for weeks.
