The telephone people period! My pet peeve from yesterday is still ongoing. I now have to travel across town to prove to them that I paid my bill!

I've done the "hold on, I'll get him" thing but make sure I keep checking back every few to tell them he's on his way as he really wants to talk to you.

LOL,,, How about “Dads in the bedroom with his new girlfriend, I’ll go get him for you. Please hold on.”



You can almost hear the phone go “click” as they hang up.

We all have cellphones here, no landline. If its a no-number or one thats not familiar, we simply dont answer. Problem solved.

I thought cell phones were for jailbirds. We in our area all have landlines. Our only problem is when one of the callers gets excited, pulls on the line too hard, and people start tripping over the taut wire and pulls the can away from their ear, then they can't hear anything.
Someday I wish they'd invent a phone without wires so we can communicate better.
