    Is there a better way to greet someone when you're calling them on the phone if the reception answers.

    I usually just say: Yah, may I speak to Tamar Cole.

    Why do you say "Yah"?

    I don't know is it rude to say "yah"? Because the person who answered didn't sound impressed...

    I think it's rude.
    Usually you identify yourself.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    At the very least, say "hello" or "good morning/afternoon."

    "Yah" isn't even a real word!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
