I once answered an unexpected call from overseas / Stories about answering calls from overseas

Stories of answering calls from abroad I once answered a phone call that came in suddenly from overseas and when the person on the other end of the line suddenly said Hello I was quite nervous. I've had two experiences answering calls from overseas when I first started my career. Speaking of stories I used to work as a receptionist for a company and I used to work part-time at a workshop that made handmade leather goods and when I was job hunting I had two experiences answering calls from overseas the first time I answered a call that came in unexpectedly from overseas and the second time I was job hunting I once answered a call that came in unexpectedly from overseas. I was also confused and asked Who are you calling for? I replied in Japanese. It was when I was visiting a friend's house and was asked to answer the phone in place of my friend who was busy. I didn't think it was a call from a foreigner so my mind went blank and the next words didn't come out. The person on the other end said my friend's name so I thought he wanted me to take his place so I told my friend It's for you and he asked me who it was from so I said again in Japanese Who is it? I said I'm sorry. The foreigner on the other end said his name but I couldn't understand what he was saying because he was speaking too fast. The name pronounced by the foreigner was very difficult to understand and I had to repeat it over and over again What? What? I had to ask again. My friend who was watching me seemed to notice and took over the phone for me but I think it took a long time until then. I later heard that he was a good friend of mine from when I was studying abroad in the U.S. and that he would call me occasionally to give me updates. The friend who took over the phone seemed to enjoy calling me in native English. Copyright (C)2021An experience of answering a call from abroad.All rights reserved.
