Phone etiquette…another one of my all time pet peeves that’s quite similar to my first blog post on what annoys me the most. It’s a safe bet to say that this happens to a majority of us; you know, when you’re talking on the phone with someone and they carry on a conversation with someone else while talking with you. You thought that this would be an “A and B conversation” but B is communicating with C, D, E and F and excluding you in the process. This irritates the hell outta me! First off, if you’re talking on the phone at least have the courtesy of giving your full attention to the person on the other end of the line. If you can’t do that then get off of the phone for crying out loud. You don’t need to be talking to someone else AND talking on the phone at the same time; in fact, you don’t need to be eating as well while talking. We know that you can multi-task but you don’t need to prove that to us. When you’re ready to give us your full attention then that’s when you should call us up; that’s all that we ask. If you still insist on carrying on an extra conversation at your end with someone else while still on the phone with us, then don’t get mad if we do the same to you–Capice! What’s good for the goose is good for the gander I say.
