DH changed home phone to office phone w/o asking me

I think a couple things bug me about this: obviously not asking first is wrong. He doesn't usually do things without talking to me about it. He just didn't think this would be a big deal.

The other thing that bugs me is that I give out this number as my personal number. So, if someone (doctor, dentist, potential jobs, friends, whatev) call, the message they'll hear is "This is DH with the blah blah company."

Anywho, we reached an agreement. He already had business cards printed up with our home number on them (), so we're just going to use the pre-recorded message that where the auto voice says "you've reached 555-5555."

Thanks for your input.

Neither of us used the phone much so it wasn't an issue.

If I were your husband, though, I would change the listing so it was in his name - it seems weird to me that he could call people from his 'office line' and it would come up under your name.
I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.
Personal life and business shouldn't mix.

You can bet that if I had a company willing to pay for a separate line, I would be taking them up on it.
