And exactly how is a request...which includes the word please..."very rude"? Is it the case that you are the queen of your environment and no one may suggest a thing, without being very rude...to her highness? I am bold, yes? Impertinent.
It seems these days a lot of women want things entirely 100% their own way...i.e. they have lost most of their manners...if they ever had any.
Plus...phone is part of my body...that's like asking me to remove my leg. How dare you.
No matter what the man wants - an uninterrupted conversation would be nice
- it doesn't count. Better to have interruptions.
Better to act like the phone is your life-line. All men are so very dangerous
. You just never know when one will flip out and go axe-crazy
on ya. Or you may need to phone urgently...for a pizza. If a woman needed often defribrillated - she's gotta get the paramedics there pronto, quite often, to stabilize her heart...then I'd grant she had a valid excuse. Without phone...death.
Why do I leave my phone mostly unplugged? Because...2 and 3 are the same number. That's why.
Good thing we're not dating, huh.
