Default Do you draw when you're talking on the phone?

Do you doodle when you talk on the phone? Do you use your hands to make motions when you are trying to explain something to someone on the phone?

Sadly enough... I'm the same way.
if I were to try to type this while on the phone I'd be all behind on my calls.

I do that as well. Then people are like what the hell are you talking about? Same if I try to read something and talk on the phone.

I have a friend that can talk on 2 phones at the same time and not screw up. I dunno how the hell he does it.

I pace when I'm on the cell too.

When I'm at talking to a customer or someone about a bill or whatever, I write stuff down... sometimes I catch myself writing down something I'm telling them like my own SS# or phone #

LOL.. my wife want's to choke me at the house when I'm on the phone at home. I do laps around the house. When I'm at work and can't walk around I doodle like crazy.. I have pages of random <<simon(mike myers)voice>>drawrings at my desk.

I'll pace unless I am at work. For some reason I always sit and have no urge to pace around. My parents and some of my friends yell at me when I'm on the phone.

My mom doodles when she's on the phone sometimes. I don't. My habit talking on the phone is just to hold the receiver to tightly to my ear (hurts my ear).

I just avoid using the phone as much as possible. Luckily, my job doesn't require much time on the phone.

I don't have a cell phone either.

Me too. And the more into the conversation I am, the faster I pace. Thank God for cordless phones.

I pace when I talk on the phone, my coworkers said I looked like
a model tech support person. I told them I hate people.


when I talk to my mother in the car while driving, I may suddenly
go quiet as something on the road happens. some idiot pulls out
infront of someone else, so on and so forth. she's had to start
the conversation back up several times.


not to thread jack; but I won't say that I'm a careful driver. I'm an
alert driver, I'm an intermediate driver. I'm an enthusiastic driver.

My phone is right beside my computer, so i literally have to turn off my monitor and sit on my bed in order to pay attention to the call or I'll get sucked into OT.. DAMN YOU OT!!!

I like to take a nice big dump while I'm on the phone. It gets a great reaction

{sploosh}

caller: What was that?

me: Nothing, what were you saying?

{fah-lush}

caller: click...
