You ever get someone on the phone and are glad to talk them, then you're like "GOOD GAWD, ENOUGH" :-)

Maybe it's just a guy thing. My mom called not too long ago and I generally enjoy talking with her. I was fine for about 5 mins, then I got immensley bored and started tuning her out until it got to the point where I was ready to get off the phone (but you know that mom's LOVE to talk).

Anyway, just my daily musings ;)

i honestly start twitching after 5 minutes, and if it hits the 15 minute mark i start contemplating suicide. i hate phones, i don't know why.

I got that way with RossMAN that time he called.

I kept dropping hints (and the phone) but he was just clueless. :confused:

That just happened to me the other day. I got back from the shower and heard my phone ring, but I couldn't get there in time. My mom was talking about coming down to see me the other day, so I called her to see if it was her that called. Needless to say I ended up pacing back and forth in my room listening to her babble for about 10 minutes. ;)

I guess I'm lucky my Mother is a busy lady... i get a call from her once a month at most and usually its her asking for help with something. If she didn't need help often I don't think she would even call me...

what about cell phones. I start twitching after 5 minutes on a land line at home or work and will do just about anything possible to avoid using it. but I don't mind cell phones..

Having worked in customer service for many years and been subjected to the hell of endless calls my entire shift, I have grown to dislike talking on the phone at all. I feel guilty when my mom is talking and all I'm doing is thinking about getting off the phone. Thankfully I am free of that line of work but the memories of those awful times still linger. ;)

I feel drained after speaking to my mom for more that 5 min's. I always prefer to chat via IM with her that way I can read and respond when I get a chance and I'm not stuck with a phone to my ear listening to her ask me the same questions over and over. But she's my mom and its only outta love that she does it.
