  • Yeah this annoys me too. Usually, I just answer, "Yeah, I was busy when the call came through." Most people are not nosy enough to ask busy doing what.
    If they were honestly, I would probably say me and my DH were having hot passionate sex, just to mess with them, that way they would not ask again, lol!

  • Yeah! :-) I always tell them, "I know I didn't pick up, why'd you keep trying? Didn't get the hint, huh?" It usually gets them to hush about it, especially if they called several times in a row.

  • nobody calls me except hubby when he's at work so...I don't really have that issue
    when he asks why I didn't answer-usually it was that I couldn't find the phone!

  • I hate when people say that to me. We try to eat supper every day at 5:00 p.m. Have been doing this for years. The neighbor lady will come over and knock on the front door and ask my why I didn't answer the phone!!
