I cant stand when someone calls and then mid conversation asks you to hold because someone is “clicking in”. I hang up on them.January 20, 2011 6:01 pm at 6:01 pm #875124mewhoParticipant
i ony use cell phones that are flip phones. this way i know that when i have flipped it closed the conversation is endedJanuary 20, 2011 6:10 pm at 6:10 pm #875125yentingyentaParticipant
one of my biggest phone pet peeves, is someone in the car on speaker phone, and having a different conversation with each passenger in the car.
Re apushatayid hanging up, my friends and i have an understanding. if the click lasts longer than one minute, we hang up, and the other person calls back when the click conversation is finished. problem solved and no hurt feelings. if the primary conversation is important, we either ignore the click (unless a parent is calling-always top priotity) or we answer and say “i’m sorry, have to call you back later”. that way there are no (major) problems.January 20, 2011 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #875126yaff80Participant
apushatayid: I cant stand when someone calls and then mid conversation asks you to hold because someone is “clicking in”.
Yes. I agree. Basically, what they are in fact saying is “wait a minute, there is someone else more important than you that I prefer to speak to”.
These guys dont deserve yours or my precious time.January 20, 2011 6:23 pm at 6:23 pm #875127BadHairDayParticipant
my “policy” is that i don’t take clicks. at all. (on my cellphne)but it sometimes causes issues when s/o realy needs 2 reach me and it’s important….January 20, 2011 6:47 pm at 6:47 pm #875128twiggyMember
when someone clicks in to the person your speaking to, and he lifts up does not mean he is more important than you. maybe its carpool, the doctor.. etc and its important. or maybe its their spouse and thwwn yes, he/she is more important. no offenseJanuary 20, 2011 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm #875129apushatayidParticipant
“but it sometimes causes issues when s/o realy needs 2 reach me and it’s important….”
The way I see it. If it really IS important, they will either leave a message, or try again very soon.January 20, 2011 7:55 pm at 7:55 pm #875130real-briskerMember

People who call YOU and then say after after 2.5 minutes in to the conversation, “Do you mind if I call you back I am sssoooo busy right now!”
Um, you called me?January 20, 2011 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #875133mewhoParticipant

My cell phone is a slider and when s/o beeps in it automatically transfers me to that call even if I don’t press a/th!!
It is so annoying and the people don’t understand why I’m frustrated when they call!! If only they knew that they made me hang up on someone more important than them!!!!January 21, 2011 5:49 am at 5:49 am #875137smartcookieMember
I cant believe how people literally get offended if someone picks up the beep while speaking to them.
You people are such big shots!!
Yes, sometimes, there are phone calls that are more important than you.
Or if you know that the click will just take one minute, there’s nothing wrong in picking up.
Or as someone mentioned above- it might be her spouse/parent/dr. Etc…January 21, 2011 9:05 am at 9:05 am #875138PosterMember
