Hang up on someone (phone)

I turn on phone at first call generally. I speak faster than normal on phone. I want to talk only about main, important facts. I want to turn the phone off as soon as possible. When someone talk about worthless, unimportant things i really can't wait and turn the phone off.
I hang up on someone unconsciously too much. Lots of people complain me about that.
I think that's because of my anxiety or impulsivity.
What about you?
Do you hang up on people too much?

Re: Hang up on someone (phone)

No -- the only people I hang up on are telemarketers, and then only after I've asked to be removed from their marketing lists and told them I wasn't interested.

But then, I don't usually answer the phone at all unless I know who's calling (I let the answering machine screen calls), and I only have extended phone conversations with very few people.

Can't Hang Up 'Cuz I Don't Answer in the First Place

For the past 10 years I have been "phone-phobic." I rarely call anyone or pick up--unless at gunpoint--let alone listen to messages or call back. With friends or family I feel terrible; with everyone else I have saved myself a lot of trouble. (Of course, I also cause myself plenty of trouble. I have even paid people to sit with me while I make a few unavoidable phone calls.).

But lately I have been improving. I am starting to pick up voluntarily now and then, and occasionally call back (though I still never listen to messages). I still would rather just take care of business and not socialize much on the phone. I tend to feel like a prisoner of the caller until I can end it. I can see the day is coming when, just like OP, I will probably feel like hanging up.

At least that part I know how to do...the trick is to hang up while YOU are speaking. No one will ever guess it's on purpose.

Re: Hang up on someone (phone)

I struggle to deal with talking on the phone. I only phone if I absolutely have to.
