This what I hate the most while I talking on the phone. At my part - time job, my main purpose is to take order from customers from the phone, and while I was on the phone, I simply hate my co - workers or whoever is around me talking loudly, or interrupted me. That really annoyed me and irritated me. It just happen more than dozen times. I meant to talk to my manager about it, because once I got the order wrong, I am the one who is at fault. At home, I hate it when I was calling the service and my mom just talking so loud at the background. Makes me unable to hear what the other side explaining something to me. So, be advised, do not interrupt people's conversation while he/she is on the phone, that is rude.

hi, of course its really annoying if you are talking to someone through phone,because i cant fully understand our conversation,even in the work,it will interrupt you for sure,so that when i have a call or i will call to other i will go to the place where i dont hear anything.

Yes, i don't like any distraction while i am on the phone, too. Because distraction sometimes can cause us to speak and give wrong details to the receiver, if we are need to pass some important information. That's why when i am at work, i always prefer to talk to my client only when all my colleagues are busy with their own works. So, i can close my door and have a nice conversation. Because if i order wrong goods and stated down wrong info from my client, my boss wouldn't be happy with it. Besides that, when at home i prefer to talk in another room, free from any distraction.

That is a definite distraction. I can't stand that either. At home I go into another room to talk on the phone so that I do not have to hear anyone talking or the TV. At work, I used to get real annoyed. If a co-worker walked in saying something, I would give them a dirty look, they usually knew from my expression.

That gets on my nerves really bad too. I hate it when I am on the phone and people do stuff like that. They just have no respect.

I really hate it when i'm on the phone with my student having online classes and my husband would just suddenly shout at the top of his lungs. As if he doesn't know that i'm having classes. Several times i told them never to do that since it's really distracting but i guess they just forget it most of the time. I also hate my neighbors talking so loud and not closing their doors when they know that i'm having classes and i even talk loud just to let them hear that! I really hate inconsiderate people.
