A good friend of mine, who is a chef in the U.K., called me yesterday. He and his family has been living there for 6 years now. We talked a lot of things and he told me that life there is actually pretty good.
In the middle of our discussion, he asked me if I’m familiar with 0800 Numbers. He said that these numbers ( 0800, 0871, 0844, 0845 ) are free phone numbers and are used by most companies in the U.K. So, most of them do not miss a call from a client. Phone charges in the U.K. are expensive. But if a business establishment is using a 0800 number, customers would be more willing to call them from anywhere and not worry about being charged a single cent.
I wonder if we have something like that here?
