Some people are afraid to pick up the phone and call people, especially strangers.
I get that, it's difficult to introduce yourself and state the reason for calling.
Perhaps you're not even sure if you have the right person and you could make a fool out of yourself.

In my experience, hanging up the phone is a lot more awkward though.
"I'll create a ticket and a coworker will get back to you."
"Alright, thanks."
"Thank you."
"Thanks, have a nice day."
"Is there anything else I can do for you?"
"No, all is fine, thanks." (I thought that was clear...)
"Alright, thank you and have a nice day."
"Thanks, you have a nice day too." (I already said that)
"Thanks, bye." (how many more "thanks" are we going to exchange?)
"Thanks, see you later." (wait, I'll never actually see this person)
"Bye."
*grunting noises until someone hangs up*

Still, it beats emailing someone and waiting for days until you get an answer (if ever).
Luckily I don't have any problems with actually picking up the phone and calling people Laugh | :laugh:
