Eh, sonny?

I must talk quietly. Several times today I've said something and nobody in the room has responded to me. It's rather frustrating.

Almost every time I get on the phone at work, the person on the other end says, "I can hardly hear you!" And my boss said the same thing kept happening to her, but neither of us can decide if it's our quiet voices or that our phone is bad.

Most of the old mill guys have hearing problems because of working in such a loud environment for so long, so I could maybe attribute it to that, but I think also people don't tend to pay attention unless someone else is loud. I always make sure to acknowledge people who say something just because of my experiences with being ignored, and I'm sometimes the only one who will say something back to them - I like to think they appreciate it 'cause nobody likes to not be acknowledged.
