May I Vent, Please?

I need to blow off some steam; get something off of my chest. You know, vent a little.

I AM SICK AND TIRED OF THE LITTLE (AND BIG) PEOPLE IN THIS HOUSE NOT PUTTING THE STINKIN’ PHONE BACK ON THE CHARGER AT NIGHT!!!

Do you know what this does? It makes the battery run down. Renders the life of the telephone almost useless. 

Then, the next day, when you are trying to take a call from Grandma, her sweet little-ole voice fades in the background and then is abruptly replaced by a loud, annoying static!!!

Or, even worse, it will go dead right when you are talking with a producer at…….ahem…….FOCUS ON THE FAMILY!!!!!!

Needless to say, the phone isn’t going to be the only thing in this house that is dead……

Have a wonderful day. I’m off to scour the Goodwill and Salvation Army stores to find three, old, curly-corded phones. Ones that don’t need to be recharged at night and that keep the telephone-talkers glued right to them, unable to wander.

Oh, and I’m going to look for them in the most hideous shades of harvest gold and avocado green I can find thank you very much.

Sweet-Phone-Friendly Blessings,

  1. Karen,

    Thanks for the early morning chuckle; I know now I am not alone in my quest to have phones back in their cradle! You brightened my day!

    Karen

  2. I LOVE IT!!!! hahahahahaha

    I trust that the producer was gracious and merciful in his/her understanding of the situation. :)

  3. Hey Karen:
    You gotta luv em anyway. Imagine how boring life would be if everyone were alike? My husband likes to leave his shoes in the kitchen nook for weeks at a time. I don’t why. He just does. I have moved them into a corner. No harm, no foul, no discussion, problem solved. Once you bring those ugly corded phones home, do your really think that your offenders are going to use them? Good luck on that :)

  4. Karen,
    I’m sorry you have had to deal with the phone issue. Our family has gone to cell phones only. I don’t miss having to deal with a landline at all. Hang in there!

  5. You go girl? Love your idea!! I have the same problem only my phone doesn’t even get hung up by my children.
