On the other side, I know way too many people who don't hesitate to call me when they are bored or need to complain about things that I have no control over. Confused | :confused:

0: The missus always calls when there's a traffic jam.
1: My retired brother-in-law calls every afternoon because he says that I need a break. If I don't answer, he leaves a nice little voicemail that I have to erase...doesn't matter anyway as he will just keep calling back until I answer. Sigh | :sigh: Those are mostly one-sided conversations about bodily aches and pains, doctor's visits, kids, grandkids, and much self aggrandizing on his part. He also likes to include me on group texts which is extremely annoying.
2: A weekend co-worker who feels the need to review the copious notes she has left for me and then ramble on for 30 minutes about company gossip or her daughter's wedding.
3: Not phone related, but nonetheless, a retired neighbor that I make all efforts to avoid lest I get trapped in another mostly one-sided, mindless, long-winded conversation.
4: Not me, but my wife routinely gets several facetime calls every weekend from her widowed father-in-law, mostly to talk about his dates. Confused | :confused: (her mother passed away < 2 years ago) It's weird. He called while we were in the car last weekend. Somewhere in the long conversation he mentioned that he hadn't talked to #1 in this list in a while, then commented 'that's fine, all he wants to do is talk about himself anyway'. It took some self control not to mention that he was doing the exact same thing! WTF | :WTF: I bit my tongue!

Thanks! I'm glad I got that off my chest! Laugh | :laugh:
