Do you doodle when you are talking on the phone?
If I am on the phone talking (or especially on hold) I will doodle constantly. Is that weird? Am I the only one?
I don't doodle, but I can't sit still when I'm on the phone, so I end up walking around my whole house, especially if I happen to be talking to my Dad haha! If I'm on hold, I'll often mumble and grumble, stopping just as the operator comes back on the line.
Not weird. I do it and I know it's fun and creative. In fact, I've heard of studies that support the creative aspects of doodling.
I sometimes draw silly pictures or write some of the words or numbers down from the conversation.
Sometimes I doodle, sometimes I walk around or pace the room, sometimes I play little games like word searches, etc (while I put the person on speaker phone), sometimes I play with something as little as a string, running it between my fingers, and sometimes, very rarely, I do nothing but pay attention to the conversation....LOL!!
yes, sometimes I doodle and sometimes I walk around the house aimlessly, depending on what the conversation is about.
I always doodle when I am talking on the telephone. Usually my doodles are of flowers or little matchstick men. My friends at work laugh at me all the time because of my little works of art. One of my little doodles is on the notice board in the staff room - its a rabbit drinking a cup of tea!
Doodle....twirl my hair, fart...hope no one hears it......and oh, I will say it.....sit on the toilet! Hope no one hears it.....C'mon people....you know you've done it too!
I don't make a habit of it but sometimes duty calls.....especially when your on hold with no live body and then all of a sudden........a person from another country! Hope it's not diarreah...ha ha, rattle that bag of chips! Only rutley will answer with the real truth!

I was watching a documentary on TV on how texting has completely replaced good old fashioned face to face communication. Apparently we have all become zombies. Especially our teens. Can you believe over 85% of teens are completely useless in communicating face to face with one another and depend...

Do you talk with yourself?I know it sounds weird but from my childhood I have a habit of talking to myself. I often explain things to myself and help myself in difficult situations. One of the things that I commonly say is that I am a good friend of myself so even if no one cares about me, there...

How do you feel about using cell phones in restaurants?As long as the person you're eating with is okay with it, I don't see how it's different from talking to someone next to you, as in it's none of a stranger's business!
