Talking On Phones Are So Annoying

My reasons why  I hate talking on them:

They take me away from my routine

They are a hassle when you call customer service for something and then are on hold

People who work for a business business trying to get you to sign up for stuff or trying to give you offers or discounts when you try to cancel

Sales people on phones and being pushy (thank god I don't get any)

Not understanding what is being said to me when they try and get me to sign up or sell me something or when it's something else important and it's so long

Not being able to hear what I am watching on TV

Not being able to chat to my online friends or being able to read stuff online

Having a hard time listening to the person speak on the other end of the line because they are not talking loud enough or they are just hard to understand at the other end

Back ground noise and some of it really hurts my ears and I feel like I am going to have a sensory overload, especially how annoying some of them are and it's like fingernails on a chalkboard. Also the fact it makes it very hard for me to hear the person.

Also the fact I just heard it's so rude to get off the phone in the middle of the conversation. **** you social rule, if my son cries or needs me for something, I am getting off the damn phone to care for him or if I have a doctor's appointment for my son, **** you I am not missing the appointment just to finish the conversation

I have no idea what I am going to say when I call and how to handle things socially so my husband has to rescue me by doing it for me, I just hand him the phone. He can handle social situations better than me and knows what to say while I freeze up.

I keep forgetting to make phone calls that are so important because I get stuck in what I am doing I forget

I prefer PM or IM or email when I chat. No phones.

I hate talking on the phone.

If I ever get my hands on a time machine Alexander Graham Bell should be worred :P<br />
Most mobile phones sound to me like a series of squawks with a noise like speech that if I concentrate I might understand each second syllable Landlines are a lot better but the damn things always ring when you don't want to answer them, been almost sacked several times for just ignoring it.<br />
Much preference for email you answer it when your ready texts are hopeless unless I have a qwerty keyboard and I cannot read a phone screen without my reading glasses.<br />

Girlwithanxiety Thank you for ranting for me :)

Well some people have a caller ID so they know who is calling and they can just choose to answer the phone such as if it's their boss calling.

I have a smart mobile that has special ringtones for important people.

BTW a couple of translations for those separated by a common language:
Mobile = Cell Phone
Text = SMS
