Thread: So if someone else answers your cellphone...

  1. #1

    Default So if someone else answers your cellphone...

    Would it bother you? Mine was across the house and someone else answered it. They handed it to me with a girl I've been avoiding for years on the other line. I was upset and nobody understood why.

    If you forgot your phone at home, were in the shower, were busy hunting for wabbits, or whatever, and someone answered your phone, would you be upset? (This isn't a particular worried/emergency situation, just casual pick it up and say "Hello, Kyle's phone" sort of deal.) I am very picky about peeps touching my stuff.

    I don't really mind if they just pick it up and give it to me. I get annoyed if people read my messages. Not because I have stuff to hide but because it's personal!
    If I turn my back I'm defenceless, and to go blindly seems senseless.

    I wouldn't want them to do that, no. Maybe if they knew the person who was calling and such. I don't much like people using my cellphone in the first place. Cellphones are so personal these days! Someone playing with your cellphone is like having someone start to fiddle with your nipples uninvited.

    My father once read my text messages.


    He said he'll never do it again.

    No.




    It should not be done. Not unless permission is given first.

    I don't like it when people touch my stuff without my permission.

    For most people, I would not want them to answer my phone, or mess with it at all when I'm not around.

    Yeah I'd be annoyed, just let that go to voicemail son, that's what it's for. If it's that important they'll just leave a message.

    Well, if the person who picked it up knew the person calling, I would have no problem. Otherwise, I don't think that I would really care, even though my cell phone is always in my pocket and it's on silent all the time anyways, so it would be hard for others to even pick it up unless they were watching the phone. It's never happened to me.

    If they knew the person sure, otherwise, no. Also, wouldn't want them reading my texts. Plus, they'd regret it if they did anyways. :P

    Good example of why people shouldn't touch your phone.

    I wouldn't answer another person's phone unless I got permission, and I'd expect the same from others.

    Incidentally if I saw that a person I didn't want to talk to was on the other line I'd hang up the phone. I've actually done that a few times. =)
