Back in pseudo-geek mode. Is that my shelter, perhaps?
Over the last few years, I have successfully managed to change my working life so that I am no longer plagued by incessant cell phone calls. Quitting my jobs, starting new companies with me doing virtually no day-to-day fronting, moving a couple of thousand miles, and changing all my phone numbers seem to have done the trick. Not that I did all that to stop the phone from beeping. No, that was just a pleasant side effect.
But that has not cut down on annoying beep-beep interruptions when I am talking to other people, face to face. No, now it is just their phones beeping twice as much. So what to do?
Put on the ring.
