People on the phone

Like my mum. Whenever she is on the phone she shouts down it like there's no tomorrow and it gets realy annoying especially in public.

Also when your talking on the phone to someone and there is a massive pause where they don't say anything. Gets realy annoying.

Re: People on the phone

I can agree on the shouting, I work on a IT helpdesk, most people phone up and talk to you normally, but others shout down the phone, making you hold the earpiece from you're head.

If only I got paid enough to tell them to shut up!

Re: People on the phone

My theory is that they have the call volume turned down so
low they can't hear the other person and in turn,
think they have to shout to be heard.

Re: People on the phone

at my nan's yesterday, she was on the phone in the hall, and I was in the living room. The person she was talking was so loud, that I could hear her, too!

Another thing, people nattering in the background in my office for example. bad enough trying to understand the call centre without banter in the background.

I travel about on trains quite a lot, and find that often people use the mobile free 'quiet carriage' to have loud conversations on their phone. Why? 'Because it's quiet' they say.
