Since a week we (7−10 people) can not make or receive phone calls with the phones at work. Luckily this is only the remote-half of the team which works for this client, the onsite people do not have this problem.
As bad as this is from the client-relations side of view, I have to say this makes it quiet and relaxing here ATM… We get requests via EMail or our ticket-system (or a coworker provides some info on the mobiles) and we can handle them without much disturbance.
Before you think bad about the company I work for… we are just a subcontractor, the phone lines are not handled by us (but I was told that the issue is now looked at by the big boss).
The running gag of the week is making the error-noise of the phone.
