A Personal Observation – Pet peeve #1: Lack of Phone Manners
May 26, 2012 2 Comments
I know what you all are thinking; what is this nutcase going on about now? Well just this; when people don’t say goodbye to you before they hang up the phone. Drives. Me. Nuts! Seriously. It stems from my a**hole, ex-stepfather. He NEVER said goodbye, but had the nerve one day to chastise me for the way I started conversations
STEP-FATHER: “Its ‘May I speak with so-in-so’, not ‘Is so-in-so there?’.
ME: *PUNCH* (note-I didn’t, but it was a fantasy of mine for years.)
I caught my mother doing it one time and immediately called her back and told her what she’d done wrong. I’ve even called Sithboy back when he was at a friend’s house and blasted him for doing it.
THEN, I got blasted on Twitter once because I said goodbye before I headed off. He sent a message saying he was un-following me because I cluttered up his stream with nonsense (or something stupid like that).
Really? Since when are manners nonsense? AND HE WAS BRITTISH!
Okay, I’m better now…
