Courtesy

We want your telephone service to be good and quick and cheap. But there’s more to it than that. We want it to be courteous too.

No matter what the occasion, there’s always time for a cheery “please” and a pleasant word of thanks. That is the Bell System way. It is one of the fine traditions of the telephone business.

    In Canada, Bell just got fined for hiring telemarketers that not only broke the anti-telemarketing laws, but also have been swearing at people and in at least one case, threatening to kill someone they called.

    Back in the days when “Ma Bell” was considered nice and had an absolute monopoly.

    This is certainly better than “We’re the Phone Company, we don’t care, we don’t have to”
