"Have I reached the party to whom I am speaking? — Ernestine

“Have I reached the party to whom I am speaking?              — Ernestine

Remember Ernestine from Laugh In? (If you are too young to remember this character, please do yourself a favor and Google her, or at least watch this. You’re missing out on a vital piece of American TV history.) She was the funniest telephone operator of all time. She was unsympathetic and condescending to customers she spoke with, and she snorted when she laughed at them. With great comic effect, she broke rules and invaded privacy all the time, and she almost never helped the customer with whom she was speaking. She was hilarious to watch in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and she still is today.

But, would you be laughing or crying if she—or someone very much like her—was taking calls or emails on behalf of your organization? That’s a silly question, because that would never be the case, right?


In the modern world of compliance and high-speed information sharing, your communications and your reputation are critical to your success. If you currently have a hotline service available to the people you need to reach, kudos to you. But, we have to ask: Do you know who is manning your hotline?
