September 6 is officially a day notorious for surprisingly, more phone calls than usual. Making itself heard just after Labor Day, Telephone Tuesday is a trendy holiday created based on a clear spike in telephone calls to businesses and organizations.
The high number of calls usually flood in partly due to unmanned telephones during the long weekend. That makes sense, right? Then comes the many schools which open after Labor Day weekend, blended with the holiday season fast approaching.
In addition, it’s been uncovered that organized folks attempt to tackle their to-do lists on this day too and so inbound calls rise to 50% on the day.
