    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.

    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.

    Phones annoy me too, that's why I've not had one (a mobile) for about a year now.

    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'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.

    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.
