A friendly suggestion: When attending a conference call with 120 other individuals, it is a good idea to put your telephone receiver on Mute. Particularly if the host of the conference has already asked you to put your phone on mute no less than six times during the first fifteen minutes of the call.
I may not be getting much action lately, but that does not mean I want to hear your heavy breathing in my ear. That bristling you do not hear right now? (You know--because I actually put my phone on mute?) That's the sound of the hairs on the back of my neck standing up with every breath you exhale.
Hmm. It seems maybe I could have come up with a full list of five phone-related annoyances after all.
