Being Rude Over the Phone

I don’t know about you, but I am seriously tired of political phone calls. I’ve gotten to the point where I just hang up on them. Rude, I know, but I feel that they are rude to call day and night. I’m finding that the older I get, the less patience I have, which just proves that the older you get, the crankier you get.

Yes, I understand that these folks are trying to make a living, but it irritates me to no end when they call in the late evening. The Crankee Yankee keeps a “*minion” button near the phone, When one of those annoying calls come, he presses the button and all you hear is crazy laughter and screeching. Savage amusement…

I find that the older I get, the less patience I have with time wasters. And as we have a presidential election coming up, everyone’s phones are ringing day and night. What irritates me the most is when I am asked who I will vote for in the presidential election. My point of view on this: who I vote for is my business only. Sadly, I have seen too many people lose friends over politics.

I really started out in life as a nice person. I have tried to be kind and understanding, and I have often given people the benefit of the doubt. That said, there comes a time when it is ok to say that you don’t talk politics, and you do not need a reason to do so. If people want to yell and scream at each other about politics, go for it. Just leave me out of it.

*From Me Wiki: The Minions are small, yellow, cylindrical creatures, who have one or two eyes. They are the signature characters of the Despicable Me series.

    OK, first question: why do you answer the phone?? Every phone has some sort of caller ID, some even talk and tell the ID out loud. We don’t ever answer the phone unless we know the person who is calling. Second question: Answering machine? You know you have one. Just listen to who is calling and delete the message. And you know this has volume control.

    LOL Don’t make me come up there and do an intervention! hahahahaha

    Hi Lissa,

    Thanks for the comment! 🙂 We answer the phone when we don’t recognize the name; we just like messing with them. Savage amusement! No intervention needed.

    Love ya!
