D-Anger Management!

Yaahaa! Howdy guys? Looks like I've been making alot of people sad from my recent posts. So I wanted to put back that smile on your faces :). Howzat mateys? Ok so here I go.

Just the other day, after a long day at work, I went home in the pouring rain and mind-numbingly cold weather...had a shower, changed into my pyjama shorts & T, served some nice food and sat down on the couch to eat...AND THE PHONE RINGS! *rolling eyes*. Dont you hate it when that happens? I mean the landline. I absolutely loathe it when the home phone rings (whether I'm tired or not!). And it rings all the time as if our home is some Emergency Helpline! I sometimes feel like breaking the phone into pieces. Sometimes I feel like taking it off the wall and throwing it in the bin. And at other times I feel like reducing the ring-volume to 0 for good. Worse, sometimes I feel like not having a phone at all - disconnecting it for life! Seriously, some people should know not to ring at dinner time and bed time. Sometimes our phone rings when we are fast asleep, around 2am? Who could this be? Some Dope who has no idea what the time is ofcourse! One day I ran to get the phone (half asleep) and nearly killed myself hitting my head in the wall (apparently I was walking into a wall). Worse, it was one of mum's friends from Sri Lanka and she goes 'How are you darling haha! When are you coming to your Motherland?'. urrrrrrrrg? Aunty, now do you honestly think this is a time to discuss Patriotism? I'm half asleep, nearly killed and trying hard not to be rude! And both my mum and sis always expect me to answer the phone. Talk about being a slave of bossy people! Worse, if it's one of mum's friends or my aunts/uncles, they start chatting with me saying 'aww Keshi how are you..how's work..tell me what happened to that, this, you, me, aunt, uncle, dinner, car, boyfriend, marriage, eggplant, petrol, sarees, Bin Laden etc etc etc. And no I'm not a girl who likes talking on the phone for too long. For me, a phone means a device that allows you to pass a message, and QUICKLY would be much appreciated! I wanna end this home phone drama without shooting anyone or burning down the house or electrocuting myself to death or even going to jail. Got any tips guys? And do share with me your phone dramas please. :)

Blank on this one.But yes phones are meant to pass massage quickly.
Mobile to Mobile:
1 Miss call ...means Hi
2 Miss Calls ...means missing U
3 Miss Calls ... call back. :P

vishesh said...

lol,since everyone in my house a mobile,we even stopped using the intercom :) the phone rings in all the floors and just shuts up :D

Nirmal's Blog said...

heheh got an idea...

u can easily find a topic in net as how talking on ur phone causes damage to ur brain....

make ur mom and sis read this one...after few days when u attend a call just act as if u suffering from a headache....continue this twice or thrice...then let them know u cant attend phone from nw onwards..

but dont act to hard ...otherwise u will end in a bed for ur brain scan....lol...

"aww Keshi how are you..how's work..tell me what happened to that, this, you, me, aunt, uncle, dinner, car, boyfriend, marriage, eggplant, petrol, sarees, Bin Laden etc etc etc"

that was fun. i don't have a landline in my flat. y do bachelors need a land phone except to raise a hint of suspicion in the parents when they call at midnight n no one answers it or if some girl answers their call? but hey, i do have a stupid phone at office which keeps on ringing as if it's the 911.
i don't know whether this can b of much help but whenever i work late or am drowning myself in coding something, i just disconnect it frm the plug. i reconnect it when i leave the office.

Nirmal's Blog said...

and when i dont feel like attending my call i just dont pick that call and later sms them i was busy...

and call them back when i m in a mood to attend them....

in this way its not harsh too...

Keshi said...

Tarun so u miss most of ur calls?

Great tip tnxx! LOL!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

hahahaha Vish nice idea!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Nirmal sadly my mum dun believe in those researches LOL!

**but dont act to hard ...otherwise u will end in a bed for ur brain scan

ROFL!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Satish!

**when they call at midnight n no one answers it or if some girl answers their call?

is this the real Satish that we dun know of ha? ;-)



** i do have a stupid phone at office which keeps on ringing as if it's the 911.

it must be the same ppl who call me then. LOL!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Nirmal I wish I cud be like u..sometimes I ans the phone when I really wanna tell em off. And that makes me more angry. why do I do that to myself!

tats because u r a sexy lady with a kind heart...

Donn said...

You can put on a heavy fake Russian accent, or wahtever you feel like, and swear like a f*cking sailor on crack!
"Vhy da fvock you fonead me you fvocker at eating timesky?"
or

I'll pretend that I'm having sex (pant pant moan) and say that now is not a good time...
"OOH GAWD OH GAWD!"

another is the timeless
"Who is this? This is Detective Malarky and we are presently investigating a crime scene..what is your relationship to the deceased?
in that case I need you to get off of the line NOW!"

Satish Bolla said...

@keshi
no buddy. i jus wrote "gal" part for the fun of it. but surely if my parents call at midnight n no one answers it, they panic. right??

and coming to the callers part, does ur callers too speak arabic?? ;)

Hammer said...

There are a lot of weekend getaways between mumbai and pune where none of these telephone subscribers have entered yet. You are totally disconnected from the world when you are there ( until and unless they decide to send you a letter through mail or call you into one of those 10 odd public telephones which i am sure they wont.) you are away from the annoying rrring rrrings there and what a relief that is!

Nirmal wut did SEXY hv to do with that? LOL!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

**"Vhy da fvock you fonead me you fvocker at eating timesky?"

hahaha I cant stop laffing!!



**"OOH GAWD OH GAWD!"

LOL but I cant do that without my mum n sis fainting!




ROFL I love the last one!!!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

I know Satish :) I was only teasing ya hehe.



**and coming to the callers part, does ur callers too speak arabic??

thank God NO! But we hv alot of Indian Call Centre guys calling us introducing themselves as Sean, James, Warren etc but speaking with a very thick Indian accent LOL!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Hey Hammer ;-)

**There are a lot of weekend getaways between mumbai and pune where none of these telephone subscribers have entered yet

♥bμşγ-ŵŗϊŧēŕ♥ said...

My of My, we are sure different here! I LOVE talking over the phone. Prefer the Landline phone. I talk for like a minimum 4 hours per day with like a zillion people. Lol. Its gets on my mum's nerves so much..hehe.
But yea, even i do have these really short phases where i dont feel like talkin to a certain someone and that's when the convo goes like this:
person: heyyy hi!
me: *oh damn not now* oh hey hello.
person: ssup?!!!
me: i was just thinkin of going to the bathroom.
person: oohhh, yuhikes, alright, i'll call you laters. bbye!
me: *phew* yea ta-daa.
:D
you should try that, tis a real and simple and practical excuse. always worlks.

oh yea, i also find it so much fun talkin to my mum's or dad's friends. in my house, tis me who usually answers the phone, so if it happens to be one of the aunties or uncles, i chit chat with em for a while and then pass the phone over. hehe.

:)

Keshi.

Keshi said...

'yeah I'll be seeing a doc and wont be able to attend to any calls until my Proctologist is off my arse, so please dun call ok'


Keshi.

the stygian sailor said...

then you get to hear the sweet tone of the disconnected line

Sweetstickychewy said...

Hmmm..i am not much of a phone person too. but i see myself turning into one..Whoops! lol...

I usually pick up all my calls no matter what. Unless i am busy or away from it.

My friends get mad at me cause i always miss their calls cause i have a habit of putting my phone on silent mode almost all the time.

I just don't really having the sound sound out. irritated. =)

T.C gurl!:D

maverick said...

well sometimes...when ppl call up for my dad n go on like "hello..can i speak to mr abc(abc being the surname)..and then i go like...yeah this is mr abc...whats the call about....

Casperbaba said...

Jeevan said...

Gifted phone cell phone, being with us every minute and seconds living in this world. This landline drama stops 2years before we shifted home, where then the cell phone replaced that and what really irritate are the banking calls and calls from cell phone service. It has no time, they call whenever and we rush to receive, shits!

Die Muräne said...

My phone doesn't rings so much. Maybe because most of my friends know that I won't pick it up anyways, hahaha :)

On my display I can see the number which is calling. So it's easy to decide if I pick it up or not.

When you don't pick up the phone, do you think you could miss something important?

Iceman said...

stay unconnected like me...
would u believe if i tell u i don't have a cell phone these days?

I used to have one a couple of years ago... I don't have one for the past 2 years now... And trust me.. its a privilege!

τ ħ€ ĐάЎđяёάmёя said...

phone...

:O

i never ring them back..so my phone buzz a lot less :P

though dad's fone buzz a lot..and he never told me to pick up :P

but i do have fone dramas..
one of my frnd vidhi is so annoyed that wenever she calls ..she finds my fone switched off :P and everytime she shouts on my blog shout box

once a guy range me up in his morning and mt 3 am time...i was so pissed off that i said hello and said dont dare to call back till his nite :P
he neva call me back :D

Satanic Angel said...

lol! am very much a phone person i can talk on the phone for hrs together but yes the landline IS irritating at times coz yu have to attend the call w/o knowing who it is and then sometimes I almost faint wen i hear my aunt's voice coz she's SO SO long winded..she goes on n on n ON. You could yu know wen the phh rings, pick it up n say "Hey i'd like to order a cheese-burst pepperoni pizza" the other person wud prolly go HUH? then yu cud say oh am sorry guess I got the worng no. :p

Nora said...

Sweetheart, Ithink you need an answering machine! :)

Nora

Preeti said...

Oh man! U touched the right chord! I HATE this too! Especially in my house, we have like some 5 godforsaken phones and just one cordless down...all of it rings and its sooo fuckin loud u just wanna bang it against the wall when it does...and to top it all when the cordless dies off half the way, i need to climb up to get the other phone..it sucks havin a house with 2 floors! MAN!

*~*Sameera*~* said...

Awww poor you :P

I hate it when someone calls(mobile or landline) when I am eating or sleeping.And in the latter case,I get really rude or just hang up!

You have to answer the phone always at home?So unfair!!!

Hugsss!

Cinder-Single said...

Oh Keshi, I cannot give you any advice, I am always on the phone.

Alday Everyday~~

I am a Phone Whore also! haha!!!

You need a really dry raspy sleeping voice when you pick up or just turn the ringer off!! LOL!!

Have a great Day!

mayz said...

oh i neva pick my home ph...coz i kno it wud neva b for me...so i turn a deaf ear...even my parents kno i wont pick it...so they dnt even temme to

hv a great day darling

Akshay said...

I guess people have really stopped caring about the poor landline at my place....It is in one corner of the house and nobody bothers to answer it.... though my mom uses it sometimes to make calls..... but what you have described is funny (of course irritating too)....

Vrij said...

Try saying this...

" Hello.. hello... hello... Oh God, you must be that bloody sunnavabitch fucking asshole trying to act smart wid me again.. even after I told you last night that you moron are good for nothing in bed! If you dare to call back again.. i will have my neighbourhood whore call up your parents asking payment for my services of last week.. go to hell bastard!"

U can be sure, you wont hear from them again!

Jay said...

For some reason the phone seems to always ring when I am...

In the shower.
Taking a dump.
Cooking/eating dinner.
Or, a football game has just started.

It's amazing how often that happens. A lot of times I don't even answer. If it's an emergency they'll leave a message.

Hiren said...

lol ... try doing the same to those aunties ... call them at unearthly hours ... and ask them ... "its showing in news that its raining heavily in Sri Lanka .... is the rain really that heavy ??? :) or maybe ask them if they have taken the clothes put for drying on the terrace ... else they will get wet again :)"

Solitaire said...

Is there a need for landlines when we have cellphones now?

We had the same problem...exact same problem...phone rang and rang until someone answered only to find out its telemarketeers!

Got rid of the landline but a roommate did not want to invest in a cellphone.

Result: an instrument only close to her ears when she sleeps. When she is not at home, the ringer stays silent. :)

La vida Loca said...

I dont answer...Later I get the voice mail and decide to answer right away or not!

Beauty and the BEast said...

alrighty!! The conventional land line has now been replaced by mobiles.. but I remember when I was in junior college , they were the rage.

I remember this particular incident, where while studying for our exams, my friend and I got bored and bang in the thick of the night we decided to 'prank call' a random number (evil us, I know I know)! And so we did!

We called up a random number and told them that we were calling from the municipal corporation and that we were conducting an emergency survey. So could the person answering the phone please check and let us know if there was water in the tap.

The person actually put us on hold and came back a couple of minutes later, saying, yes, there was water in the tap!

We then said, "What did you expect would flow out of the tap- Coke?"

:l

Anu said...

How about just programming voice mail to pick it up, after 3 rings. That way ur mom and sis will have too many calls to return, and run for the phone the next time

Ria said...

Its like all of us r trying to redeem our true selves these days. Nice post gurl... :) I jus refuse to pick up the home phone coz i m busy wth my mobile phone most of the times!! Cant blame anybody coz its my guy who keeps calling me most of the times coz he doesnt live in Mumbai. But one thing tht irritates me to no end is when i m havin a nice sunday brunch at home and this courier guy appears from no where! I mean do they realise tht its lunch time....and ppl need some privacy..no! all they knw is to come at the wrong time...and here i m scurrying to the kitchen to wash my hands so tht i can sign on tht god damn piece of paper! Btw the 2nd pic is gud, u shud actually implement tht. :)

just mad said...

Hello !!! Hello !! Sorry, I can't hear you, can you please be a bit louder and audible .. hello, hello ( tack-tack-tack )

There seems to be some problem in the line, don't mistake me I will call you back, sorry about this ...

You got to use this technique ;)

ishqia said...

hey! is that ur pic..
u resemble one of my ex-classmate..

telephones.. they hardly ring for me nowadays.. so no need to pick..

Sutta said...

Nobody calls me. Except the bank buggers and cell phone companies. Sigh!!

Tairebabs said...

am a bit of a cellphone addict but sometimes...just sometimes especially after a hard days work, I screen all incoming calls...uncle and aunty calls can only be answered in the morning when my tolerance level is good.

OMG you are so true about the ph! I also can't just chat on the ph .....so true! I can understand your frustration dear
I would prefer sms than making a call dont know why I feel I am in more control that way ;)

Luv n Hugz dear

Solitaire said...

@ Dawn

I prefer to SMS too!!!

maverick said...

@keshi...morning...howdy??busy day??

sid said...

I think I have been lucky in this regard....dont have a landline(blame it on excessively high rates!)..and a mobile helps to take only those calls which I want...But I can Imagine the "perfect timing" about which you are talking....back home, the phone always seems to ring at the wrong time...n unfortunately at such instances I seem to be the only person closest to the phone...n seconds of contemplating whether I should take the call or not..never helps..cos eventually I do have to take the call:-))

I answer the phone at work. It's part of my job. I hate it because it rings ALL the time.

When I get home the last thing I want to do is answer the phone. I rarely do.

Ghost Particle said...

//eggplant// katrika story ah? Aiyoo! I call grandma and always ask.. did you make manga pachadi today... (mango chutney to da rest of the world :P)

Ok im gonna be totally honest...I have a mobile line that I pay 80 bcuks a month but like use it once every 2 days. I send tonnes of sms thought. I dont like to set ring tones, ever anymore. Like you, I had the sound of anything from the phone except ppls voice.

The worst calls are numbers you dont know. I dont like to pick it, but my heart wont let. I pick it up, there goes my life. its either some idiot long lost chittapa's son, or some GUY. NO GIRLS?!@*^^#$*@%$ ever.

So there you go...I always say YES YES YES on the phone. and feel miserable the whole day after that, coz then ill b stuck in some improbable situation.

@Donn! ROTFL LMAO you are the master I am your subject. teach me more.


Miss you alot keshi...i dunno why...jst felt it :)

Cinderella. said...

Smsing is nice but when theres smth urgent to be conveyed you cant erall bank on it can ya ? I cant. I will make a call to be sure.

But yeah, there are times when your phone just wont quit ringing off the hook incessantly, all day long....aaaaarrrrgh !!!!!

Thats when you wanna throw it outta the window for good..lol ! And the next moment you realise, oh no, you cant !

I have thrown my phone about 3-4 tmes till date at some wall in the room, (after a fight), immediately getting up and trynna search the bits and pieces of it flown away after the impact. And then sit and join the pieces together, and waiting for the thing to ring again..

Its like, ring goddamn you, ring !!!!!!!!!!

And it does ! Bahahahaha....

Keshi said...

**as soon as it used to find me asleep, the idiot use to rang... one day i also killed myself as my feet actually stuck in the loose wire of phone

hahahaha! aww I didnt mean to laff at u but it was funny hehe.



**i said... do u wanna come for movie

hahahahaha too funny!


ur so like me Ankur! Cos whenever I get Marketing calls, I get so annoyed I just tell em off. Some ppl r polite and hang up when I tell em Im not interested but there r some wannabe-smartarses that dun seem to know what NO means.

One day this girl was telling me she's gonna give me cheaper rates to overseas calls and I said Im not interested. She wudnt hang up after so many times of saying NO, and she asked me 'maam why arent u interested in cheaper calls?'..then I told her 'its cos I like spending alot of money on calls' and I hung up on her.

When i was studying i had a friend who used to call me the day before exam and ask me answers to all exams questions on the phone. It was usually not less than 30. And since some subjects were in russian, some in german and some english, we were talking 3 languages and my parents and sister thought i was going mad :D

Asha said...

Me too! Hate long "chatting" on the phone too! If it's some sellers or fund raising stuff I just say "I am a baby sitter,lady of the house is not here!"!:D
It's tough to shut up family though. They yakk endless, mainly about the illness they have, how did they suffer etc! I hate it.
Have a great weekend sweetie, see you on Monday. Got cold virus when the weather turned 99F!:P

Macadamia The Nut said...

Niyara - Asian Rocxs said...

HUGS!

Princess Mia said...

babes i wud face the same thing every sat / sun back in syd, would just unplug the wire n sleep peacefully hehe

Solitaire said...

Keshi you up for me putting your question up on Short and Sweet today?

fingers said...

I couldn't agree with you more, Keshi.
Last year I cancelled my landline to stop people ringing up for a pointless chat every night. I only have the mobile now, so if they want to chat it costs a dollar a minute to waste my time. Strangely, most people can say whatever they have to say in 90 seconds when the cash register is running...

AmitL said...

ROFL.Keshi,we share the same ire for the phone...suggestion? do what I do-keep all the phones on silent,when you need peace and quiet.And, if that is not possible,give a few choice nice words to Mr. Bell for inventing this device:)

rantravereflect said...

n ya keep luring us al teh way wyd ya pics :)
nice one there!

Nirmal's Blog said...

hi..........hw r u...still calls troubling u...

SMM said...

Hey just stumbled on to your blog...anyway turn the tables on them,. Ask them how their kids are, how their girlfriend/ boyfriends are, ask the caller if he has a boyfriend/ she has a girlfriend, or how you heard that he had VD and whisper into the phone and ask whether its true that they are sleeping around with the next door neighbour's cute niece/ nephew and then scream 'Yes, I knew it' or just act rude and say 'Ok i'l tell ____ you called and just hang up without taking the person's name' and relay the msg that someone called. When asked who just say Told you someone' or act vague and say you forgot....Irritate the caller and the person to whom the msg is to be conveyed, you'l soon be out of your unofficial job as the receptionist of your house :P

Cheers

I love the back ground music!! Men at Work, right? Takes me back to high school. :)

Macadamia The Nut said...

Remember my previous post Keshi? Where my sis called me at an un-godly hour *shudder*.. The whole week and last I've been getting similar calls. The clan keeps forgetting what time it is here. You'd think they'd remember after SO lung at least.. BLEAGH!

But I'm guilty of the same in a way. I'm shit scared of 'things that go bump in the night', k? So on one visit home, I woke up at night feeling dreadfully thirsty. It was dark and I was scared to go get water on my own. :D SO clever me calls my landline from my cell phone. Hehe! Dad (he's my usual victim) wakes up and I hear him muttering curses as he goes to answer the phone.
Within seconds 'innocent' me is right beside him saying "who called? oh, hold on, lemme get some water before you go back to bed"
;)

SambY said...

well Keshi, I m a bachelor and living far off from my native place...so, I don't keep landline...
Thou I never mind talking on the phone incessantly...but for the people whom I don't want to talk, I simply pick up the phone and say Hello, Hello...Sir, I am not able to hear u...can u be bit louder plz??...and I switch off my mobile for a while...
now everyone in my house uses mobile...so, lesser use of landline...

Vest said...

Its perfectly simple take the phone off the hook when you dont want to hear it.
Or if you call telecom or your service provider, they can put a block on nuisance calls.

LIke calls from call centres in INDIA er er.

I have had several unsolicited calls from a hot babe from unclesamland, usually around early pm, she can sure lay it on thick, some of her suggestions and-or things she gets up to, I have never experienced within my lifetime of serious bouncing around in the boudoir.

tulipspeaks said...

i don't really hv problem with the landline coz well, i don't give my hse num to anyone and i don't chat with relatives :P

but i do hv problem with some ppl who call my mobile. i blv mobile phones are for OUR convenience and not for other's convenience. i hate it when some will not give up when i don't answer their calls. normally i take calls but u know, we do get busy and sometimes i can't pick it for a reason (lets say in meeting) but the other party keeps calling u over and over again. why can't they understand that im not answering the call coz im occupied with some important tasks? *sigh...

and now its time for a shameless self-promo. tulipspeaks has been nominated for 2 blogger awards:

Best Personal Blog
Most Popular Female Blog

Give me the best ranking, okie??!! :P

thanks hun!


ammu.

general_boy said...

Just plug the FAX machine into the socket and leave it there!

I got jack of idiot phone canvasers and "dinnerus interuptus" about 5 years ago. If they really really need me, AND they actually know me, they can call my mobile. Failing that... DON'T CALL ME!

aneri_masi said...

our landline is stricly meant for the telemarketers...you know when some of those online forms ask you for your phone number? And hence, if the ringer is on, we know its no one we know, so we never pick it up.

If the cell phones ring at odd hours, we don't pick it up.
My dad usually tries to give me a hard time if its too early in the morning for me when he calls and gets my voicemail. I used to feel guilty before, now I tell him you should sleep too!

Keshi said...

lol Vesty!

yes the telemarketers r bloody annoying!!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Ammu congrattz hun! Im soooo happy for ya. Will come ard to vote for the number one hunnypot in Blogville!

me too. I hate that. And sometimes I wanna smash my mobile too.


Keshi.

Keshi said...
