There are rules for calling me at work. The thing is, no matter what, if my phone rings, I have to answer it. That's not a preference or an opinion, it's a requirement of my job. So when it rings, I have to drop whatever I'm doing and answer the phone. If I'm troubleshooting a problem, and I'm five steps into solving the problem, I still have to quit working on that issue to answer the phone. When I get off the call, I go back to the problem I was working on, but I've lost my place. I've lost momentum. So I start again, and if I'm lucky, I can start at step two or step three and work my way back to step five and beyond. Either way, I lose a lot of time and productivity, and that's just infuriating if the phone call I dropped everything to answer ISN'T business related.

So the rules are that my wife can only call me if someone is in the hospital, or if someone is at the door about to turn something (electricity, water, phone, ect) off. Anything else can wait until I get home. She breaks these rules frequently and it never fails to send me into a rage, especially when I've gotten into trouble at work because she called. (It's not as big a problem since we reached a compromise; she can Text me anytime, but understand I may not recieve it or be able to reply in a timely manner. And asking when I'm going to get home is off-limits because I don't know. I never know, and If I'm running late, asking and answering that question will only make me EVEN MORE LATE)

I imagine Chloe is just as inconsiderate as Joanie is being, but Steve has a point. When Chloe calls, it's way more likely to be life and death....
