Last week I started on four different multi-step assignments. Each involved calling a specific person at a company to get answers to some questions. Then, based on their answers, making an appointment for an in-person visit.
Finally I got tired of the waiting game and left a message. When the phone rang and the caller ID showed me it was the company I answered the phone, only to find out that my contact had punted the call off to someone else.
I requested a phone call from the correct person, ended the call, and went on about my day.
Of course the call from the correct person came at an inconvenient time and I couldn't answer the phone. Finally, days after I started the assignment, I called and reached my designated person.
(The rest of the assignment was a piece of cake.)
