I 'm Not Fond of the Sound of a Ringing Phone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 295 People

    I don't know why, but I've never really liked

    my phone ringing. Maybe because it wakes me up when I'm sleeping. It may just be because of how I'm used to having my phone on silent mode as I was afraid it would go off during schooltime/lessons. Luckily I have now graduated from school, so I don't need to worry about that...

    It Can Be Painful Sometimes

    especially if you're trying to sleep. but also when it surprises you, when you're trying to have an intimate moment, when you're trying to have some alon time....it can be really annoying just to hear it ring and be interrupted. I don't really want a cell phone because I'd want...

    Ringing At The Wrong Time

    Why is it people always call at the most inconvenient times? ie when you're making love or have just sat down to a nice dinner!! Grrr! I'm bad when it comes to answering my phone anyway and I usually just leave it ring, if it's important they can ring back or leave a message...

    It Seem Rude...

     Stephen Fry put it best: "if someone burst into your office and started yelling TALK TO ME NOW! and banging there hand on your desk until you answered them, that would be considered rude" So a phone making a noise until you spoke to the person on the other end...

    I don't know why I find it

    so annoying. I'm more so annoyed hearing mine ring than others. I pretty much always have my phone on vibrate instead.

    Hate It

    I hate the sound of a ringing phone.  I get p*ssed when I hear it ringing.  I don't even know why unless I associate it with all the escalations I handle for work.

    I hate it. I also hate voicemail.

    I am like this now since I started my job as a call center rep for a home party business (like party lite). Call after call after call. Sometimes they were quick, but often you got the really not tech savvy ladies. I think I was on a call for about 50 minutes one time. No holds...

    It isn't a specific ringtone

    that bothers me; I hate to hear the sound of my phone ringing period. I know this sounds terrible, but I can't stand when people call me. I hate it so much that I keep my phone on silent at all times- no sound and no vibration. I cringe when I hear it ring, because I don't want...

    Better Than It Was, I Guess...

    The old kind of bell-type ring used to trigger me all out of mind.  The sound no longer sends me into an instant flashback every time, but I'm not fond of it.

    Phones Are For Call Centres

    After working in a call centre for so long, I just *hate* to hear phones ringing, unless it's my cell phone (and not work calling me). You talk to idiots on the phone all day who only care about themselves...you don't feel like talking on the phone past that. -.- I've only...

    Don't get me wrong, there's no shortage of men and women on the LC switchboard who are ready to take your call. What I object to is that incessant ringing, you know the kind - four, five, six, seven rings to the point where you are sprinting up and down stairs, running across the...

    I am NOT fond of the sound of a phone ringing.

    Especially a basis ring. Now if it is a song I can deal with it, but the basic old school annoying ring drives me completely crazy.

    One of the things that drive me crazy is when someone just lets their phone ring incessantly yet seem to be oblivious. Same thing with their screaming kids...but that's another story!
