Does it annoy you so much when the phone rings that you just HAVE to answer it?

Or does it not bother you, and you can let it ring out?

This is something that DOES drive me absolutely crazy.
Even when I am in a store, like Myer, I have a strong impulse to answer the ringing phone.

Not sure why I would have that reaction and even why it is so annoying!

But definitely, YES, it does annoy me to hear a phone ringing and not answer it and I have a problem not to answer it for whatever reason.

No I am not utterly compelled to answer the phone! If whoever it is really wants to speak to me,they will try again! Funnily enough,my sone rang from interstate this morning and after we said our farewells,I went to use the loo.as soon as I sat down,the phone rang again.There was NO way I could stop what I was doing just to answer the phone!!!!!! It turned out to be my son again,and sure enough,in a few more minutes he RANG AGAIN!!!!
No, I'm not compelled to answer a ringing phone.

I keep my mobile in my bag on the back seat when I am driving and have no trouble at all ignoring it until I have reached my destination.

The exception would be the work 'phone since it would be inapproriate not to answer that when it rang. But if I was mid converstaion with someone, it wouldn't bother me to let it go to voicemail, which I have permanently set.
I've no reason to let the phone ring out, and it does bother me a tad.

This is not something that bothers me. I think it would only bother me if the person had a really annoying ringtone
by AJ
I HAVE to get it.

I go a tad nuts if not.

Could be someone important!!
Yeah, right, jonaj! Lol!
HM could always leave a message!

No not really, can turne out. If it was in my house well..obviously I don't want to answer it at the time so it wouldn't annoy me either.

Doesn't bother me, I can just put the phone on mute.
does not bother me as the answering machine is on.
Used to. But now, couldn't give a whatsit!

Can do *10# & I'll find out, except if private call.

Whomsoever can just phone back until they get me if it's important!
Yes, I hate not answering a ringing phone, not that our phones ring very often at all. The landline, about once a month & the mobile may ring once a week!
