Um...

We have an intern here at work, a newbie planning student. When she talks to people on the phone she has a way of starting her answers with "Um..." very loud. As in "Um...I'm not sure" or "Um...You'll need to come in for that..." or "Um....No, you need a building permit but that shouldn't be a problem..."

I don't dislike her but the um is starting to get to me. Her desk is right across from mine, separated by a divider.
