This Phone is Gonna be the Death of Me!!


Gah! I have been meaning to talk about this forEVER! Here is the sitch: this phone is the only working phone in the Brentwood Home. ..well semi working. I do not know how to unhook it either. It rings SUPER SUPER loud and I can't hear the other person, but they can here me. Also the only people who usually call this phone are telemarketers who ask amazingly personal questions and don't take no for an answer. We HATE answering this phone, and rarely do.. but when I answer it, I sound like the beastliest meanest woman alive! and i say " this phone doesn't work please call our cell phones" then I hang up. The reason for that is, when it rings it startles me, and the dog children go NUTS and are barking as loud as possible at the phone the whole time I am leaning awkwardly over that desk trying to speak into the mouth piece and have no idea who it is or if they can hear me and Erik is sitting comfortably in his leather chair in the background yelling for me to be quicker when answering and then for me to be "nicer" when answering.. so between him and the doggles and the possible telemarketer on the other end.. I sound super annoyed, because I am ! ha but please don't take it personally if you have been on the receiving end of that! and also please never call this phone again! Please always call our cells and if you don't have our numbers we will gladly provide them to you!

Haha.. Yeah the phone is very cool and I am impressed that it is still working. Unfortunatley when the phone was manufactured, back when horses pulled carriages, they left off the "ringer volume", which BTW is set to 5000. Please call our cell phones.. :)

Marty I have considered that about once a day!!! Especially when it rings at like 3am and scares the life out of all 4 of us!
