Phone Sense 2
Ah more Phone Sense.

This one is an easy one providing you remember the golden rules that come with it.

In this ideal world of ours, it would be nice if some people simply ran a check list through their heads before they actually spoke to the person on the other end of the phone.
How many times have you answered a land line phone only for the person ringing you to ask where you are ????????
Now sometimes the sheer madness of the question will throw you and you will tell them. But take a step back and have a think about the lunacy of the question. They know what number they have called, they know where that phone is they know where you are.

When faced with this situation it's always best to try and calm yourself down by trying to confuse the person on the other end of the phone. Tell them you are at the Train Station or in a Pub. If you think you can get away with it try telling them you are in Spain. Then when they say "but I've rung you at home/work", simply lose your rag with them. Making sure to point out just what a stupid thing it was to ask.

Sometimes this question may be asked by an irrate female, your late for something and she is being ironic. If your faced with this situation, simply apologise, this is not the time to question her madness. If she is already in that kind of mood you will never win.
