    Regarding Sherri’s question about multi-tasking and being on the phone. I actually am a great multi-tasker while talking on the phone. Obviously, however, if someone is talking about something major or urgent, I won’t multi-task. On the other hand, if it’s just basic chit-chat, there’s nothing wrong with the ability to engage in a conversation while doing dishes, for instance. (And think about people have jobs where they have to take phone calls. They have to multi-task all the time!) Henry, women love to talk on the phone and have been doing it since childhood, therefore, we do have the special ability to be able to talk and multi-task with activities that don’t require much brain activity. No one is doing brain surgery while handling a phone call.
    What is annoying, however, are mothers that constantly pepper a phone conversation with talking to their children (“put that down!” “what did you say”)– and you think that they are talking to you instead. Now, to me THAT is rude, although I do give mothers a ‘pass’ or I end the call until another time. I believe that if you are talking to someone on the phone, you should talk to only one person, not two or three!!!
    And don’t get me started on call-waiting. That is another rude habit that many women employ… “Oops, my other line is ringing, let me put you on hold!”
