  •  And another thing... (4+ / 0-)

    ... speaker phone may be the best thing since sliced bread for certain communications... BUT, when one is calling one's BFF and BFF now has the habit of using speaker phone, and BFFs hubby is right there..., I start seething.  Since I moved away we only speak twice a year; I call her on her birthday and she calls me on my birthday.  What we talk about, even if it's only weather, is none of her hubby's f#cking business!  I quit telling her anything confidential many years ago because I knew she'd tell her hubby.  When she was married to hubby #1 I never worried she'd tell him anything (and phones at that time didn't have speakers), but it's a totally different story with hubby #2.  Grrrrrrrr....

    •  My daughter does that when she (6+ / 0-)

      has friends over it drives me crazy. And then asks if said friend can spend the night. Here's my answer "are you in the bathroom? It sounds like you are in a bubble, there's an echo I can't understand you or like you're talking under water. What?"

      •  When we talked on my b'day... (4+ / 0-)

        ... this year there was so much static on the line I just asked her to turn off the speaker phone and then I could understand her.  When I called on her b'day (which is after mine), there was static again, and I'll be damned if we weren't cut off!  [That's enough to wonder if NSA was eavesdropping.]  I called back, but there was so much static I cut the conversation short.

        If we're going to talk, it's much easier if I don't have to continually say "What?  What?  What?"  Repetition makes me nutz, too.

        Still..., I don't get the fetish for speaker phone.
