Has anyone in this forum had experience with people hanging up on them during a keep-in-touch call? If so, have you learned a good way to respond?
I called a colleague who gave me their number after they were let go without any real notice. (Their company lost a contract with my company and neglected to inform their people in a timely way.) We worked in the same office, spoke regularly about our children and parenting. I think we had a good relationship, but could be wrong. A few months have passed since we last talked; perhaps I took up MT's neworking advice too late to maintain that relationship.
I want to respect this person's wishes, but do not know how to interpret what they are. They hung up right after I asked them how they were. Does this usually mean someone does not want to talk right now, or does this usually mean they do not want to talk again ever? I don't have a good read on they message they are sending.
