Talking Posh on the Telephone?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Does anyone you know or perhaps yourself talk all dead posh when they answer the phone? My uncle who is a rough and tough mechanic - goes all posh when he answers the phone - it's so funny!!

    My Mum is a bit like that. She speaks well, without sounding posh, normally. But as soon as she answers the phone she puts on the posh phone voice. A friend's Mum is exactly the same. It's funny when they recognise your voice, and the posh voice suddenly dissapears. :D

    I'm the same as BritJames, very professional phone manner and all geezerish outside of work.

    I don't mean to :rolleyes:

    I just get in the habbit because I have to answer the phone all posh at work.

    What really pisses me off is that mum feels she has to shout on the phone to be heard. I've tried to tell her she can speak at a normal volume and they will still hear her :p

    i'm terrible for talking posh on the phone....when i'm speaking to people at work who i've never met before, they're always shocked at how common I sound when I meet them in person :)

    I don't talk posh, I drop my slang and just become more annunceated and articulate. K that's fancy talk for becoming a smidge posh.

    At work I answer the telephone in a posh manner but as soon as they start speaking to me I lapse back into my average voice, unless it is a doctor or consultant from the hospital. :)
