A co-worker at the home office was recently reprimanded for her grammer and diction. I have never worried about this as long ago I cultivated a professional phone voice. I tried to combine the oily slickness of a used car salesman and the hucksterism of Chuck Woolery. I think that I have succeeded to a certain extent. I am glad however that I do not work at the home office for I do not know if I could keep up the facade for eight or ten hours a day.
Although I will admit that my Texas accent is rather strong, I do not think that the home office gives a rip as to the grammer used by the rest of the plants. My counterpart in Sandersville, Georgia has an accent that puts mine to shame. In comparison to his voice, my voice would enable me to play the lead in Shakespeare's, 'MacBeth.'
But see what you think. And Have Yourself A Very Nice Day.
