Where there's a will.... We aren't completely rigid about the hours.  Of
course the person could suggest that the call back leave the message on an
answering machine.  Or perhaps call in again on their lunch hour, or have
something faxed or mailed to them.  As I said, I don't work the phones, but
they will forward people to me if it's a qstn about bulbs or about suppliers
they're unsure of.  They either call me at work or leave a message at home
for me and I call the people in the evening.
