Phones.. my rant..

As many of you know.. I'm am totally NOT adverse to talking on the phone.. but lately.. I've been pretty pissed off.. Ya'll already know I've been having issues sleeping.. so it comes to no surprise why this post was added.

I get phone calls.. all.. day.. long.. and I'm not kidding.. it's never the same place twice. Granted it's gone down since I put this phone on the donotcalllist but it takes a while to go into effect.. but seriously.. I'm used to it interrupting my dinner.. (not that it's any better) so by the time 1-2 pm comes.. I'm downright beligerant.

Because I didn't want to miss my hubby's daily calls (I never want to miss his call during lunch) I put the ringer back on and my phone has a distinctive ring with certain numbers I program in. So if it doesn't do that chime.. I won't even look at the caller ID. I don't care who it is..

So please forgive my rant.. I'm friggin' tired and I can't stand having my sleep interrupted. My friends email me to see if I'm awake and want to talk. The rest of the world can bite me..

All is forgiven. I hope you get some sleep very soon. Take good care of yourself.

I'm right there with you on this one Elsie...tried to stay home sick the other day and did nothing but listen to the phone ring all day with recorded messages...and I don't have caller ID so I have to pick up in case it's family or an important call...I was not a happy camper either...hope sleep finds you soon so you can get some rest.

Just woke up. I had a headache again after posting thing and sure enough the phone kept ringing. Hubby came home and let me sleep another hour or so and I got up on my own.. just too frustrated. I'll hopefully conk out at a better time tonight and sleep like a normal human being.. /groan. Thanks for the support though :D

I keep getting a phone call from a warranty company. I've told them a billion times I'm not interested in their extended warranty, but they still call. I finally reported them. That in itself can be a headache, so I can only imagine how you must feel.

Take it easy, Elsie. :D

Sorry you're not sleeping well these days. I try to look at the telephone as merely a tool to communicate at my choice. It's still annoying when the contraption just won't shut up! I hope you can get better sleep tomorrow (or even tonight).
I must thank you from the bottom of my heart for adding something new to my lexicon: bite my shiny metal ass, indeed.

Sorry to hear about the phone calls, I get a bunch on my cell phone telling me my fleet of trucks have a problem. The only time I had a fleet of trucks was when I had five and played with Hot Wheels. The calls come from various area codes and can hit up to five times a day. It is definitely annoying.

I hope you can get some rest soon.

I think I'd be better if it wasn't that when I AM sleepy i can't sleep well because hubby sounds like he's trying to saw the Redwood forrest.. he's totally conjested with this stupid cold.. THough after hearing Mom's case (she got the Flu after a cold and got another sinus infection.. the pressure of all that ruptured her eardrum...).. I'll be okay I was just totally venting!

It is a lot better than it was before.. just frustrated with the situation. I'll be back to my normal.. wait.. I already ramble when I'm in a good mood.. NVM LOL

God bless the inventor of Caller ID. The number shows up on my TV if it's on - don't have to run for the phone to check the number. I still get calls for the person who had the number previously - over 5 years ago. I've called and given them info - they swear they won't call again then the account is sold and the calls start again. If I ever find Julie R., I'll ask her to pay her bills.

I'm not one for talking on the phone to begin with, so when these annoying calls happen, I go crazy. So I hear you on that front! They still call me even though I'm on the do not call list, but I don't think I have the energy to deal with reporting them. I just thank God for my caller id and ignore them.

I hope you're feeling better now!
