Nothing pisses me off more than when I call my girlfriend and I'm telling her a story or answering a question and I pause or ask her a question and the line is dead. She stopped paying attention to me to answer or pay attention to someone else. It's not that she went away that pisses me off, it's that she doesn't say, "Hold on a sec," or something similarly informative. I understand if she's at work and someone needs her for a second or she's at home and her family asks her something but I don't like being in the middle of a story or conversation and realizing she hasn't been listening for the last 10 seconds. Then, I get to sit there and wait until she comes back. She's an amazing girlfriend and I love her to death. We'll probably be getting married in a few years and this is the only rude thing she does. It's the technological equivalent of walking away from someone at a party while they're talking to you.... No, scratch that.... it's the equivalent of walking away from a blind person who is talking to you and letting them figure out you've left and letting them wonder when you'll return. Rant complete.
