    Personal calls during office hours

    One of the colleagues uses my office line for making personal calls. My phone line is found busy most of the time. It is getting me my bossís ire. I have requested the colleague not to do so but nothing helped. Please suggest a way out.

    This is a matter of concern as this might lead to many problems in the future.It can also create problems between your boss and you.So you need to solve this as fast as possible.

    -You should talk with him regarding this matter frankly.Go for a open conversation.
    -Make him understand your problems due to his act.
    -Explain him the problems that might be faced because of this in the future.
    -If he still does not improve,go to higher authority.
    -Report your problem and ask for their interference in this matter.
    -Tell them that inspite of your explanation,he is still continuing his act.
    -Request for an immediate action siting the problems faced by you and the negative effects on the company because of his act.

    Hi aspirant

    You should find a way to get out of this situation otherwise you yourself will get punished for something you havent done. Tell your friend one more time to stop using your office line for making his personal calls. He should use his own mobile phone for making his personal calls and not the office line. Also your boss has his eye on you as your line is busy most of the time. You dont want to get punished for something you haven't done and thus if he doesn't mend his ways you would be forced to complain to your boss regatding this matter. So he should stop this at once .

    I hope your friend gets afraid and thus stop using your office line. Otherwise its better you go to your boss and complain about him regarding the usage of your office line for his personal calls even after your telling him many times not to do so. So this is the reason for your phone line coming busy most of the time and you have no role to play in this.

    Your boss will then surely punish him for his wrongdoing. All the best friend. Thank you

    Hi,

    He's doing wrong thing by using your phone to make personal calls.
    You need to talk to your manager regarding this issue.
    Tell him that your co-worker is misusing the phone.
    Even after you have told him not to do this,he's doing it on a continuous basis.
    Request the manager to take strict action against that employee as soon as possible because your image is getting dented due to his misdeeds.

    Bye!

    HI Friend
    friend you should talk to your colleague about this and tell him that you don't like his excessive use of your phone. you should also explain him the bad impact which it may cause , when your boss calls you and your phone is busy regularly. if he is a real friend of yours , he will surly understand your problem but friend sometime colleague do such type of acts in order to frustrate you , to harm career, to make your image bad infront of boss.
    so, you should try to convince him politely first and if he remain unchanged you should make a complaint of him to boss.
    after all the consequence of the acts done by him , will have to be faced by you.
    Thank You
