Best times to make a business phone call

Avoid making an appointment or placing a business phone call before lunch on Monday or after lunch on Friday. Most people just don't want to deal with you and your issues during those times.
Monday morning is set aside for changing the rhythms from weekend to the workplace.
Friday afternoon is the reverse transition time - changing mentality from work to play.
Too early in the morning (before 9a) or too late in the afternoon (after 4p) can also be inconvenient and unappreciated.
