The other night Chris was on the phone for well over an hour. No it wasn’t one phone call, I think it was about three phone conversations. Our phone just kept ringing all night.
He talks so loud when he’s on the phone it’s hard to concentrate on anything and forget watching TV … unless you turn it up quite loud you can’t hear it as he talks louder to compensate. Sometimes I wonder if he’s got a hearing problem.
Before we had a DLP TV we used to have a Sony Trinitron and when Chris would get on the phone and start talking loud while I was trying to watch a tv program (remember this was long before we had a PVR that would let us pause or record a show) I’d sometimes just switch the TV to the captioning service and read the close captions if the station or channel provide them for that program. At least I could still follow the program!
Do any of you have that problem? Someone at home that talks so loud you can barely do anything in the same room if they are on the phone or talking to someone in person?
