Over and out

Managing things for my mom, I’ve gotten good at ending telephone calls. How I do it:

“You’ve been really helpful. Thank you. Bye.”
“I really appreciate your help. Thank you. Take care.”
And I’m out. Which eliminates something along these lines:
“Thanks for your help.”

“Is there anything else I can help you with today?”

“No, that’s everything.”

“Thank you for choosing _______, and have a good day.”

“You too. Thank you.”

“Goodbye now.”

Those seconds add up. Yes, they do. Goodbye now.
