    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.

    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...

    Answer your damn phone!

    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!

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
