Argh!!! Just because there are two phones in the house does not mean that you have to answer it every time it rings...particularly if the phone range twice and it has been about 7 seconds since you last heard it ring. Don't you think that means that *I* answered it??? If it is for you, I will let you know. And while we are on the topic, please put the headset on your head before you answer the darn phone!! Noone wants to hear you scramble to get the headset on and the microphone up. It is irritating. Get it together. Please.
