Random thought of the day

I really need to get my basement sound proofed.

My "office" is down in the basement.

Occasionally when I'm on the phone with a client the dogs will bark, but they are upstairs so it's a bit muffled.

Today howerever, I was on a conference call and I had my phone on speaker so that I could surf the web work at the same time when someone upstairs flushed a toilet and the sound of rushing water coming through the pipes was very loud!

Everyone on the call asked if I was OK.

Once while taking a conference call at home, Daisy got a serious attack of the barkies. Instead of just shoving her out the door and onto the deck, I tried to hide from the noise. I ended up huddled in the back of the closet, trying to muffle the phone with my hand. The vp who placed the call kept asking whose dog it was, but I didn't say a word. For the next conf call, I made sure I was in the office. Sure enough, somebody else's dog got the barkies. LOL

I now have a phone with a mute button.

Are you sure you weren't really seated on the throne with a cordless? I have been guilty of such crimes!

VC always SLAMS HER DOOR when Daisy and Rosie go at it. Which would seem to defeat the purpose...

Hopefully they didn't think it was you who had flushed. haha

Now see, if you were a guy, you would've just said, "My bad, too many brats and beers last night." :D That's the real beauty of being a guy. The world is your urinal and noises associated with bodily noises aren't embarrassing, they're hilarious!!
