I'm sorry, I Can't Come To the phone right now...

Thursday, April 12, 2007

I was talking to my Sister-in-law on the phone tonight. She was put in charge of coming up with tonight's post. She failed, so by default, she becomes the post (insert childish stuck out tongue here).

The Husband has about a billion sisters. Or five. Three of them are pretty whacked out for various reasons, one is so far away I barely know her, and the other is normal except for her aversion to snot monsters children.

I was talking to the normal one. About the abnormal ones. Following me still? The Sisters are very very difficult to get off the phone once they start talking. I think it has something to do with the OMG T.V.'s are evil, None aloud in mah house! Out Damn Spot. OUT! attitude they have.

One time I was forced to pinch the baby to make him scream in order to get of the phone. I'm not proud of it, but it had to be done.

Normal Sis sets a time limit right at the start of a call, Saying Hi! I can only talk for this long as I am going out.

So internets, what do you do to get out of talking to annoying People? People you have less than nothing in common with? People who take every word you say and pass it on to others?

In other exciting news!!

Mr Fab was offering to interview people, and I got my questions VIA e-mail today. Should I tell him he screwed up one of the questions or answer it as is? One one hand, I like Fab. On the other hand, It would make the answer funnier... decisions decisions!

Breaking new update!

It occurred to me, whilst lounging in the bathtub, melting bits of chocolate on my tongue, what good is a diet if you cannot cheat on it? that if I keep coming up with excuses for why the children can't have just a little bit of Easter candy, Please mommy, Next April we will be frantically eating bunnies to make room for more. Again.


My other blog is set up with PPP now. It is still awaiting approval. I don't remember how long that takes. I would be very grateful in an oral sexish way (given by the snake of your choice, of course) if you would link Paint! on your blogs and add it to your Technorati favorites. If you have any other ideas on how to raise my page rank, spill it!

Euhm, if you already have a blog that was approved for PPP, the next blog normally gets reviewed within a week.

Since this blog has a PR of 3, where is your blog that has PR 4 or more then (me extreme buzybody)

Good luck!

I will do all that as soon as I finish commenting. When you go to other blogs, leave that as your link. That's the only thing I know. After that, ask Fab. He has lots of good ideas.

I think you should just answer it as he wrote it. LOL

Oh, and it get off the phone, I might go outside, and ring the doorbell. Or say Nikki did something really bad. OMG! Nikki just puked all over the place/knocked over the trash/got into the litter box! Poor dog. LOL

I think you should answer Fab's question as he asked it. It's fun to make him look silly!

Now, are you keeping the candy from the kids so you can have it all, or for some lame health reason?

Blogger Finn said...

Oh, and always use the children to get off the phone - isn't that why we had them? So we could get out of things we didn't want to do?

"I'm sorry; I can't come to your godawful, boring event because my child may have MENENGITIS"

dave has awakened me to the fact that i have this "signal" for when i'm reading to get off the phone with somebody. i'll say something like, "well, i'll see you there, o-KAY?" or "oh, i gotta go, o-KAY?"

it is the "o-KAY" part that is the signal. unconcsious, but effective... whatever works, i guess.

I guess getting off the phone by telling people that they're boring you to death and that you WANT TO LIVE (!!) is out of the question.

Blogger RoxDar said...

I just say gotta go..if that doesn't work I say it in the middle of their sentence really loud and just hang up. I only do that to ONE person...TEEHEE!!

I say. "well, I know you're as busy as I am. I'm gonna let you go now." Sometimes it works.

For salesmen I say, "We're really not interested. Thanks," and then hang up. I feel like I'm doing them a favor because I know trying to sell to me is a waste of time.

Shelli I'd rather leave my web addy as bluepaintred cus I love this blog more. So thats out. Pay per post is nice money wise, but Id rather direct traffic to BPR and have links to Paint here LOL

Im very contradictory arent I?

Lynda So do I comic relief is great!

Lynda ive paid the kids a dollar to ring the doorbell before. Actually, I just paid my seven year old five bucks to take all the kids int eh back yard and watch them for two hours so I could clean the house.

Finn Finn, so its agreed, i will not let him fix the questions. Its not for me nor health reasons that I am keeping them from the candy, I just dont want to deal with the chocolate mess on the table and floor.

Finn usually i am trying to get of fthe phone with family, so illness doesnt work. Blue boy has a real sounding fake cry we use a lot though.

WebMiz oh no, I have a get out of hell free card. email me your snail mail, I will send you one too!

Slick Im going to answer it tonight. bonus cus I got questions from avitable too!

Violet at home, when i am done listning its like my ears tuurn off, i will wander away when he is in the middle of saying soemthing. But i hate being rude on the phone. except to telemarketers!

Monkee Im writing that one down! I think it will work!!

RoxDar Why do I get the feeling I'M the one you do that too?

Marilyn yes! the flattery angle! Also i hat etelemarketers so i kind of like when they call, i take out my agression on them and save the children from it

This blog was already on my blogroll on the big blog.

Jerri Both addresses are added to both of my blogs now (actually three, my picture blog too LOL).

May I ask which is your main one so I can stick it in bloglines as well? I love bloglines. I always forget to check any blog not in it!

Ah, so that's why page ranking is important. I get it now. I thought it was just a contest. Here you're trying to make some cash on side!

That's okay. Hookers get cash on the side, and I pay them, so I guess I'll favorite you and maybe even link over. Cam I expect link love in return? I'll leave the money on the dresser.

Squirrel I thought I did that already. Thanks for the linkage and the heads up!

Todd Heh.Ten bux on PPP just today and I dont have to annoy anyone cus no one goes to Paint! thanks for the link, and of course I will link you! i should tell you, you are already on my bloglines, which is where I read from, but I will put you on my blogroll as well!

No, I totally get that. That makes complete sense.

I meant to tell you that someone once told me about a technique that they used to get off the phone when someone was talking to much. They would start a story and mid-sentence, they would disconnect. Then don't answer the phone when they call back. They will think something is wrong with your line. You can't ever do that to me, though. 'k?
