absolutely hate when people are talking on the phone and then try to talk to people around them at the same time.
I firmly believe that when you are on the phone, you are on the phone.
I'm not going to stop my conversation with you to yell at my kids, say hi to someone else, answer another call-- no, you are my number one priority. If this changes, I will politely excuse myself from our conversation.
If you are expecting a call or you know you are going to be occupied-- then don't answer the phone!!!
There is nothing that drives me nuts like someone talking to me on the phone and still trying to maintain a conversation with an entirely different person. How about the twerp that tries to email or watch TV and talk on the phone! Argh!
NO THANK YOU!
I will talk to you when you have time to talk.
This has become a source of contention for the mister and I. When I am on the phone I completely tune out all other noise around me and maintain concentration on my conversation. I never hear the mister ask me questions or acknowledge his presence at all. This drives him completely insane!
Sorry, I can't help it. That's how I roll.
What's your phone hang-up?
