I can't stand it when someone calls me on a cellphone, and I'm in the middle of something, so I tell them that I'll call them back in 5 or 10 minutes and then when I call them back they don't answer. I just don't fucking get it. If you wanted to talk to me 5 minutes ago then why the fuck do you not want to talk to me now ? This highly infuriates me.

Maybe THEY can't talk to YOU now because THEY are busy. They called you when they had the time. Not everybody revolves their entire life around your schedule. Just maybe you're not the only person they need to talk to today, and when you called back, they were taking care of some other business.

You aren't the only person in the world, you know.

If you are in the middle of something, don't even answer the phone.

My wife will ring the bell off a phone and leave no message. She will do it over and over and over. Man that drives me nuts.

I could see if I called them back an hour later. But 5 or 10 minutes ? Why even bother calling me if you can't talk 5 or 10 minutes later ?

because they wanted and/or were available to talk THEN.

Not 5 or 10 minutes from then when you were available.
