What do you do with your phone?

Found 17th Dec 2009
During the night?

Mine is right by my side in case I need to be contacted.

Same way as I leave the baby monitor on in case the little ones call out for some reason.

But if I need a good sleep I turn the phone to silent and respond soon as I wake.

What do you do with yours?

Nice thread here peeps : No trolling or bickering. Just chat and banter xx

Really that's awful? I've had the same problem.

You should report them to the police. Unless you're talking rubbish that is.

Judge people by how they treat others... that's what I say... If you see someone being unkind to someone else then avoid.

Of course it's another world to listen to senseless mindless gossip. That's just stupidity.

Yes your are bang on there - but unfortunately I only had half the story - the untrue half. Same person sent another poster on here texts also - the EXACT same texts word for word when they said they had collapsed.................was all very freaky and thats when we realised they were off their rocket.

I have learned big time from that massive mistake - there are some very unstable people out there.


Good luck with your thread - am off out to work now:-D Have fun everyone

Mine is always on too (just in case my grown up boys need me in the wee small hours lol) it sits next to the LO's baby monitor at night
What did we do without them eh?

Wow sounds like they may have been genuinely unwell!

Bit strange that people are sending one another each others texts and discussing someone else in such detail..... that'd worry me, its obsessive, paranoid behaviour, very judgemental. As you say, some strange people out there!

Have a lovely day sweets xxxx

I think things were simpler for sure. Now that we can contact each other no matter where or when; our (my) anxieties increase to match that!! If my boys are out late I stress until I either hear them come in or they text to say where they are :oops:

Yes that was a very silly mistake, you don't want nut jobs texting you at all times of the day and well done for keeping the text messages as its good evidence texts don't lie( unlike some) as that's the the advice I have given to MOP`s who have the same trouble, if it continues you need to let the OB know as its harrasment , and there are laws to prevent this sort of behaviour.

I hope the fool that has been texting you realises they need some professional help..

merry christmas :gift:

Keep my phone at bedside for alarm (Sweet child of Mine)

And handy if there's a power cut you can use the light from the screen to get to where your torch is without banging into furniture. :thumbsup:

My mobile phone is left downstairs, if anyone wants me they can use the landline in the night! Cant say I have ever had mobile calls in the middle of the night

Think i may spend my afternoon text harrasing you unless there is a good film on the movie channels. :-D

left on my shelf and on silent, its an arms reach away so in the morn when alarm starts vibrating and i can put it on snooze

im a pretty heavy sleeper but the vibrate pretty much wakes me so is good in the middle of the night if im desperatly needed.

Mine sits in the docking station beside my bed :-D

Mine is beside the bed and switched on as normal in case I'm called into work.

John

It's over the other side of the room with the alarm set so I have to get out of bed to turn it off.
