Does anyone else hate them as much as me? They have to be the rudest invention of all time. If I knocked on your window and said "ANSWER ME! ANSWER ME" you would be p****d but that's pretty much what a phone does.

Plus I need to use them all the time for work (of course I'm glad to have work but still...)

If there was one object I could remove from human history without affecting anything else, it would be the telephone.
 
Well...I think they're handy. I ussualy IM though.
 
I cant stand them! I actually have a bad habit of breaking them when i am drunk because they annoy me so much. My ex once bought me a phone after i was thrown in a pool with my phone in my pocket, It annoyed her so much that she couldnt contact me every 2 seconds. i Fn hate phones.

Ever snapped a slide phone in half? great feeling. currently phoneless because of that.
 
Somebodies parents were obviously murdered by a telephone...
 
Phones annoy me too, that's why I've not had one (a mobile) for about a year now.
 
You people still using your feet to power your cars made from wood and rocks and ordering giant bronto ribs at the drive-in that tip it over?
 
I don't have a problem with phones per se, what I have a problem with is people that don't answer their phones. Between my mom, my dad and my best friend they've got about a 30% answer rate. I can almost guarantee when I call them I won't get anyone to answer.
 
I'm too dependant on mine. And that's using the internet.
 
I hate phones for a completely different reason in that I was born with a slight hearing loss and so having to deal with answering the phone can be a bit of an anxiety for me. I've had jobs where I would try my best in avoiding having to answer the phone and dealing with a soft talker. It's nerve-racking in missing things and having to try and get someone to speak up when needed. Gah.
 
I got my first smartphone recently. Its an HTC MyTouch. I'm still trying to figure out how to work this damn thing!

I'm kinda the same. I don't have a hearing problem, but I hate having to use the phone because I always fear that I won't hear or understand what the other person is saying. The only person I talk to on the phone is my mom, but in terms of a job, I keep looking for one that doesn't require me to do phone calls.

They all will at some point.
 
I really can't answer this , I couldn't say if I hate phones as much as yyou , becauseI am not you :)

Personally Phones are fine and they are apparently fairly intelligent today most are know as Smart !!!
 
I'm 50/50 on phones. I don't care for them, but I don't hate them either.
 
My parents recently upgraded with a cordless phone. Their old phone was one they used back in the 80's before I was born.
 
Let's see, spend 1 minute dialing to speak to my mom or 3 hours driving to talk to her... I like phones. They save me a LOT of time.
 
Telephones are to me
as
Bane is to Gotham.
