I Hate Office Phones!


I don’t know why but I really do hate office phones and I came to the realization recently. I had to move offices recently and in my new office I didn’t have an office phone for over two weeks and I found that to be very relaxing, I really didn’t want a phone and I was enjoying the ability to get work done without something going off. Whoever needs me can find me on my cell phone, then they installed the phone from somewhere else in the company and gave me a number.

At that point I realized how much I hate office phones, and here are a few reasons:

  • The phones are so damn ugly with no ergonomics what so ever.
  • These phones get dirty so quickly and for some reason it doesn’t seem clean no matter what you do.
  • The phones with LCD screens have the weirdest abbreviations for the functions which leaves me clueless of what the hell it might do.
  • How many buttons does it take to reach the voice mail and the command rational for deleting makes no sense.
  • I don’t use 90% of the features that the phone has, its nearly impossible to even do something simple such as storing a name in a phone or something of that nature. The simple tasks are made so difficult that you want to smash your phone.

Just like Office Space I want to take a bat to my phone. I hate office phones!
