It is a lonely week in the office this week.
Bossman and his wife are on holiday for ten days which means that the Project Manager is out of the office more often.
Mostly I don't mind being alone in the office. But when I have a lot of work and the phone rings non stop it kind of annoys me. I hate answering the phone and would never answer it if someone else is in the office.
At home I would only answer the phone if there is nobody else in the house. We used to have an answering machine which meant I did not have to answer it at all. I loved that. If I am really engrossed in something and the phone rings I will just ignore it completely.
Sometimes when bossman and I are in the office on a Friday we just do not answer the phone.
I actually hate speaking on the phone. Home phone or mobile phone - they both annoy me. I prefer face to face or via msn and Facebook. If I must talk on the phone I try to keep it short.
Of course, now and then it is nice to have a long chat with my sister or my mum but that would be an uncommon event. And I am never so rude that I will cut a phone call short.
You could say it is unsociable and I may well agree.
My sister in law is a phone whore. She will talk on the phone for hours. Call after call. One time she came over to look after my son when my husband and I were out. The next day my son said that she was on the phone for the entire evening. About five hours. What on earth is there to say? Was her ear not sore?
Not only that, most of the people she talks to are ones she also sees on a regular basis. I could understand if perhaps they lived in another state which is the situation with my mother and sister, but she will speak to someone for two hours that she had coffee with only three days beforehand.
Maybe I just have nothing to say.
