My dad sucks royally at answering the phone. He will text and 1 min later I will call with no answer.

People who talk on the phone in line at a store really piss me off.

Happy Monday

On a bus, a train, or subway car, sitting next to the loud talker who has trouble hearing so EVERYONE has to listen to his half of a conversation.

Specialized ring tones that THEY, and ONLY THEY, think is original, cute, catchy, when the reality is to others it is, annoying.

I hate it when people call me and then instead of having anything to say ask me to come up with something.

I hate it when I'm riding the bus, and the guy next to me is talking to his 800-porn-gal "girlfriend"!

I don't remember where I was, but was in line and the girl at the counter kept answering the phone, and helping the people on the phone. ( was about 3 peps in line) she would just start to help the poor sap at the front of the line and the phone would ring again. This just kept on.

I final got tired of this and called her from in the line. Got the information I needed, as I hung up I raised my phone and hollered at her from the line as I left THANKS FOR THE INFO

Yeah, "I want to rant but I'm not particularly bothered by anything!"

people, specifically my FIL, who turn their phone completely off, rather than putting it on silent. he also has a cheap ass prepaid phone, that will only receive texts when it is on.....but no way for the sender to know that it did or didn't go through.

I don't expect anyone to answer first ring, but at least leave the damn thing on so that you can tell when someone is wanting to get a hold of you. Silence it if you don't want to be bothered. Actually takes less effort than turning it off. He also has in his mind that you have to charge the phone to 100%, then use it down to 0%, and then turn it off for it to charge. Not sure where that theory on battery life came from.

Any time my wife has anything to do with a phone it's an issue.

1. She doesn't carry her cell phone with her so no one can get a hold of her or when she calls and doesn't get anyone...she puts phone away.

2. When she talks on cell phone...she pushes hard on her phone and often hangs up the phone.

3. She starts every sentence with...Ummmmm. This tells me she has nothing to talk about and is making it up on the fly.

4.She doesn't understand why I don't answer the phone when she calls during the day...not realizing that I'm on the phone 80% of the day with customers. 9 out of 10 times I'm on the other line when she calls. Then when I try to call back...see #1

5. Between the hours of 2pm and 4pm....it's nap time. No way she will pick up cell phone or home phone.

6. If a number pops up on caller ID that she doesn't recognize, she won't answer.

7. See #6 - then she wants to know who it was when the phone stops ringing or they leave a message

8. She leaves me a message that says...."ummm....hey....I've got a question can you call me?"

Why not tell me the question in your message so I can have an answer ready to go when I call back?

9. She likes to eat nuts and chips while talking in the phone

I'm sure there are others...those above are just immediately available

I have PLENTY

1-TURN DOWN damn TV when you get on the phone, got a friend of mine that I honestly hate to answer phone when he calls. His TV is blaring in background

2-People that carry on conversations with others while on the phone

3-someone EATING while on the phone

4-I agree with the speaker phone crap, my BIL does this all the time. I honestly think it is the only way he knows to use his phone

5-This pertains mostly to my MIL & SIL, which is pisses Admiral off because I WILL NOT PICK UP our house phone when I see it is her calling, DON'T CALL have NOTHING to say. My MIL/SIL, bless her heart I love her to death, will call and you can not get them off the phone and they have nothing to say . Also my DAMN RETIRED SISTER will call my office 3-4 times a day, she has not figued out SHE is retired NOT ME and when I do get on the phone is something very stupid that could wait until I left my office


6-Probably the one that kills me the most is a retired couple that I have done their taxes for many years. Sweet as they can be BUT when he has questions about taxes SHE will call and He will tell her WHAT to ask me and then SHE has got to ask me the question. Then when I give her an answer She repeats it back to him.. ALL the time I can hear him clear as day. My secretary rolls in the floor when they call. I have actually thrown pens across the hall at her for laughing when they call. Both have those slow southern drawls and it takes FOREVER to get through the topic and no matter how many times I suggest he gets on the Phone he never does.

7-Also damn caller ID, no answer and they turn right around and call you back. "I saw this number but did nto know who it was so I called it right back". Well by gosh if you would pick damn phone up you would KNOW whose number it was

My rant for the day

During a (construction) progress meeting, some foreman will take a phone call and interrupt the entire meeting while they stay in the room and have their conversation.

This only happen twice in meetings that I host before I put an end to it.

I have been in others meeting when the super let it continue.

I called an insurance company once and the woman was slurping the meat off her drumsticks while I was talking. I asked her if her chicken was good. Then I asked a question and she told me, "You gettin' way ahead of yo self" haha ahh, customer service.

The people that talk on speaker phone constantly.
I am amazed at how many people do this in public and have no idea or don't care how much it annoys others.
