Awkward...

One of my biggest worries is that my phone will accidentally answer while I'm driving in the car, singing along to the radio or talking to myself.  And the fear (sort of) came true last week...

On my lunch break the other day, I talked to Mr. BUB on the phone.  I was out running errands, and when we were done, I think I pressed 'end call' and set my phone down in the car.  I proceeded to talk to myself, other drivers, and random people as I drove.  I stopped at a light and picked up my phone to check my to-do list.  It was then I noticed that my phone never hung up.

I did what any sane person would do in this situation.  Muttered 'oh crap!' and hung it up as fast as I could.

Then I texted Mr. BUB.

Me: My phone didn't hang up...weird.  I hope you didn't hear me talking to myself.
Mr. BUB: What were you saying to yourself?
Me:  I don't even know...that's what worries me!
Mr. BUB:  Why were you talking to yourself?
Me:  I always do.
Mr. BUB: I never notice it much.
Me:  It's when I'm alone.
Mr. BUB:  I talk to myself when I play video games.
Me:  I don't think it's considered talking to yourself when you're yelling...

I spent the whole conversation cringing and waiting for him to admit he'd heard it all.  He never did.

All I can say is this- at least I wasn't singing along to the radio.  That would have been much worse.

My old work partner used to pocket dial me at least once a week. I always hoped to overhear something juicy, but alas, it was always muffled pocket noises.

Nevertheless, I think Mr BUB would have gotten a good laugh out of your ramblings!

I worry about this too; but then it also makes me wonder, why didn't the other person end the call too???

Hahaha this is one of my fears too! So I normally make sure the radio is loud enough to drown out my singing!

Sarah said...

I'm so scared of this happening! I talk to myself too, so I'm always afraid someone is going to hear my stupid self-conversations.

We just got a new car with bluetooth. Now I am going to be totally paranoid about not hanging up properly! Or maybe just prepared/cautious.

OMG! That is hilarious :)

Amy Lynn said...

Too funny! Been there, done that. I always wonder why the other person does not hang up though.. I mean I guess if I was on the receiving end, I might listen as well. Least it was just your husband and not your boss or a disliked relative. ;)

Cat said...

Haha at least it was your husband and not your boss!!

Jules said...

could have been much worse- you could have been talking about someone, who was on the other line listening! that's always my fear with phones around.

I always sing in the car and when the phone rings it’s a little slow to answer, so I just keep on singing until someone says hello? They almost always get an earful! I’m paranoid that when I hang up after a conversation and start talking crap about them that it didn’t hang up. Hahaha!

I totally would do something like this! I have the same fear. My hubs does the exact same thing yours does (talk/yell when playing video games!)

Michelle said...

I always talk to myself and sing when I'm alone in the car! Luckily, no one heard you though! :) Just in case ;)

Rebekah said...

I always talk to myself in the car. Isn't that normal?? One time I didn't hang up and Dylan listened the entire time I was singing. Talk about embarrassing!

Katie said...

Ha! This is great. At least it was the hubs & not someone else ;)

Cole said...

Heeheehee! I suppose that if someone is going to hear a running commentary of traffic, stream of thought, etc - your hubby would be the best case scenario!

Katie said...

LOL- I'm TERRIFIED of accidentally dialing someone or not hanging up and they hear me singing along! I also talk to myself all the time!!! In fact, just this morning my coworker asked if it was me or the other girl who sometimes sits at my desk - and she said "I usually know when it's you because you talk to yourself all the time" The funny thing is though, the other girl who sometimes sits here ALWAYS talks to herself too! That's part of the reason we get along so well! LOL I work pretty much alone, so when you have nobody else to talk to, you just get used to talking to yourself and thinking nothing of it - until someone overhears you and thinks youre a nutjob! LOL

hehe this is hilarious! I like to pretend I have a blue tooth when other people catch me talking to myself in the car lol

I would never want anyone to hear what I belt out in my car when I'm alone :) Good thing the phone did actually hang up!

Katie said...

Omg-- I have this same fear!!! Lol. And that's true-- yelling at the tv/video game isn't quite the same...

Miss Lindsay said...

Haha!! This is one of my fears too... and I have the WORST singing voice.

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

I always get scared that when I'm talking about someone, I'll accidently dial them and they'll hear! lol
