Do You Have Any "Talking on the Phone" Habits?

Do You Have Any "Talking on the Phone" Habits?

On Monday night's episode of The Hills, I couldn't help but notice that Lauren always has her fingers in her mouth when on the phone! Looks more like nail biting than anything else. . . maybe it helps her focus or something?! Camera shy?! I've definitely become more ADD in my later years while talking on the phone and can't say I have a "phone habit" since I'm usually pre-occupied with getting off the phone. Although my mom can attest to the fact that I can be overheard washing dishes on Sunday mornings while chatting with her — sorry mom! What about you? Do you have any quirky habits when gabbing on your phone?

I doodle if sitting down and pace if I'm not.

I'm usually walking/pacing and holding my hand to my ear if I'm wearing a headset as my Mom has trouble hearing me in it. Or I'm driving...I know, I know, not good but it's the reality of when I have time to do it.

I'm a doodler, but I also play solitaire on the computer or I'll do housework while I'm on the phone. Things like empty dishwasher or dust. Chores that can easily be done with one hand.

My mom and I look at websites while talking to each other on the phone. We'll often point each other to a site that we think is interesting while talking.

I doodle, but I usually twirl my hair more. I find myself doing that all the time; I guess it helps me concentrate or something. Also, if I'm near a mouse, I usually scroll the scroller thing. Kind of like a treadmill for my fingers?

I clean, too. But quiet cleaning, like dusting, Windexing. And if someone calls while I'm making dinner, I'll take the call but let them know I'll be chopping and stuff.

I pace. I can't seem to put my thoughts together if I'm not moving.

This is really weird, but if there is a hanger nearby, I have to play with it with my feet.

I pluck my eyebrows. It was something I discovered I could do with a hands-free set, and now it's what I do. Even my bf noticed the habit. At least there's nothing wrong with well groomed brows!

I walk around and pick up things/put away things or do dishes. I always call people while I walk home or I'm on my way home.

I like to doodle. When I surf the net on the phone I get quite because I am reading stuff. LOL :)

geek, I always wash dishes too! My mom will often call me out on it, but I'm like, listen, I have no dishwasher, and it's a totally mindless task. Perfect for multitasking. At least I'm not surfing the net!

I doodle. If I knew someone was surfing the 'net while on the phone, I'd say goodbye. I think that's very rude. Doodling & looking down are my habits. It helps keep my thoughts focused.
