to phone someones house unarranged at in the morning. Do you just phone whenever you feel the urge or would you wait until a specific time if it was there day off. I normally give a time of 11 o'clock beofre I will phone someone but there is always that fear they will be sleeping.

Well i wouldnt call someone very early in the morning.. but after 9.00 a.m its ok to call unless ofcourse its a holiday. and late nights is a bad time unless of course its an emmergency. for me late night means after 9.00 p.m.. its not neccessary tht they r asleep by then, but ppl like torelax n enjoy a bit after dinner. so it would be intruding to call them at tht time

That really depends on the person. If it's someone I don't know their morning routine I'll wait until 9 a.m. and call. My Mom and step-dad I call after 7 because I know they are up and ready to head out the door - catch them while I can. I miss my grandmother who passed away 4 years ago. She used to call me at 6 in the morning - she would always say she just wanted someone to talk to and knew I would be the only person in the family awake. I have always been an early bird.

No actually to tell a lie.my hubby does have a lay in when I am not here and I have phoned himon accasion where I got a neanderthal replying to the phone call.I got the message and hung up lol. Otherwise I usually7 wait till an appropriate time ofcourse.

People can call whenever they want, but they aren't going to ge me before 8 AM or after 8 PM unless there is some weird fluke. I flip off the cell once I've picked up the kids, and the phone is downstairs. The house is under strict instructions to not pick up the phone at all unless we knoe whose number it is, or if not know the voice once the machine comes on. I use the same rule for others except on the weekend, it would be 10 to 10 instead of 8 to 8.

Well I would NEVER phone someone after 9.00pm at night, unless it was a dire emergency. I guess that's because I get up at 5.00am for work, so I am normally asleep or just getting ready for bed at 9.00pm, and I think everyone else is too! In the mornings - well I'm wide awake and at work by 6.30am, though I normally leave it til 9.00am to ring someone just for a chat! Don't think I actualy know anyone who would still be asleep at 11.00am! All my friends are either at work, or they have kids, whch means they never get a lie in!!!!

I usually wait as you do unless the call is important and cant wait. If i know the person schedule like if they worked the night shift the night before or the grave yard shift i will most likely wait a little longer so they get there rest. You know alot of people are not that consider though. I dont know how many call me after i have worked the night shift and it is not important and early too really bugs me.
