“Would you be happy if someone called in the middle of the night?”

I had a friend who had called me in the middle of the night today. I forgot to set my mobile phone in silent mode. I am so mad because I am trying to catch up with my lack of sleep lately. This friend of mine disturbed my inner peace. The only reason why he called me big time is to ask a favor. That is, he wanted to borrow my laptop. I think there is nothing wrong to ask a favor but he needs to be sensitive. Now, I am a bit sleepy and I need to have a power nap this afternoon. “What would you feel, guys?” Image Credit: unsplash.com

If someone would call me for things which could wait then I am bound to get mad. You friend could have wait till the morning and called you. I don't think it is the right thing to actually call someone in the middle of the night for unimportant things.

That's what I am having sentiments. It is a good thing that I was able to sleep this afternoon.

I wouldn't have talked to him but told him in very clear terms that it was insolent to call at night and asked him to call again during the day.

If just calling for no reason..no I would not be happy. I am not happy when anyone calls me at any time of the day not just in the middle of the night. I do not like anyone calling me

People should try to be considerate sometimes, how could you wake some up in the middle of the night just because you need a favor from the fellow, i don't think this is right I would be kinda infuriated if it was me I would not even answer the call

You are right. I had that second thought that I shouldn't answer it in the first place.

It so annoying and fuels the madness if the person thinks it is funny.

I received a call 15 minutes ago. And it's 11:24 pm now. I actually did not mind her calling me because it is my insurance that she's fixing. Maybe your friend has an urgent need of the laptop.

I do get some calls occasionally from other time zones. I tell them it is sleep time in my place and they apologize - siva

It is a good thing that they apologized. With this friend of mine, he thinks it is always a joke.

That would make me very grumpy indeed! First of all if the phone rang in the middle of the night I would be scared thinking it was an emergency or something, and second...I would hate the person interrupting my sleep.

There is always a point that it can be an emergency matter. I will feel anxious if it is a missed call. I am going to be worried.
