Anyone else jump right out of your skin when you're asleep and the phone rings? It is comparable to a bucket of ice cold water being dumped on me, with a follow up dose of all-day heartburn. After a wake up like that there is no falling back asleep for me. I am seriously dragging a** today again, because BF's family cannot get it through their heads that it is rude to call at an hour when they know someone isn't awake. After eight years of us living together they have not caught on or do not care that we are not early risers. By all means if it is an emergency then call, but it NEVER has been. Of course he won't put his phone on silent, bob knows why! Vibrate wakes me up anyway. He falls back asleep at the drop of a hat so it doesn't bother him. I think I need to start calling them at 1, 2, and 3am just so they know what it feels like.

I know I'm tired, pissy, and pregnant and probably over-complainant. I'm really not looking forward to taking this final with three hours of sleep though. If they keep this crap up after the baby is born someone is going to get a serious verbal whipping from me

That is why I keep the phone downstairs, no one hears it if it rings. And since my hubby used to do night shift we get a lot of really late calls.
It's never been something I couldn't handle in the morning instead of at night. And yes, drives me nuts, door knocking, phone ringing, alarm going off. I just feel awful all day.

So sorry...I'm the same way. That jolt of adrenaline makes it impossible to just relax and carry on as usual.

We used to have issues with my MIL calling at crazy hours and we finally told her that she is not to call (unless it is an emergency) between 9pm and 9am. She didn't listen, so when we moved we didn't give her our new number for a few days. She finally figured out that we were serious about her respecting our wishes and now she behaves 99% of the time.

I'm sorry! I would be really annoyed too. Why are they calling? I would just turn off bfs phone if he isn't going to. I know thats mean but I hate being woken up. I also have that problem now with my landlords. They think its acceptable to call or bang on my door at 7 in the morning even though we have told them several times not to. I don't understand people.

It sucks your BF won't do this! How rude

I only get scared if I leave it on the counter because it vibrates before it rings and that buzzing / monster like sound scares me every time!!

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

I'm seriously such a pissy tired person, it is ridiculous. Yesterday it was to ask BF what time he had to go somewhere - and then to tell him he was lying because nobody would have an appointment at 8:30! Really? THREE different people called for that same reason. They constantly bug him, nag him, or put him down and they wonder why he doesn't want to answer their phone calls.

And just now one of them called his phone, and called my phone immediately after, and called his phone again. To ask what time he goes to work today. Hmm, I don't know, maybe the same time he has gone to work EVERY DAY BUT SATURDAY for the past YEAR. Seriously people!

That's another thing that does it to me, someone at the door. I'll be awake as awake can be and he'll still be stone cold asleep. It amazes me!

My FIL was terrible. Called Dh's phone all hours of the day and night. Even when he knew Dh would be sleeping. It was usually to talk about video games. Dh had to finally just do it to him to get him to stop. And trust me do not interrupt my sleep without a dang good reason.

To talk about video games so late? I would not be happy about that, especially if it woke me up!

My Mom has a habit of calling really early, like 8 am, and Drake usually stays up until early morning so 8 am is like the early middle of the night to us. I tell her everytime and it kinda ticks me.
