I work with 3 married guys, and I've noticed that their spouses call them at work a lot, like 5-6 times a day. Is this normal?
5-6 times a day is way too much...I'm surprised your workplace tolerates so many personal calls.Why? No worse than a smoker taking several breaks throughout the day.
My wife calls a few times a day, but it's usually for help (i.e. how do I fix this in Access), venting (i.e. X is pissing me off), to say goodnight to my daughter (I work late), and sometimes just to speak to an adult (she's a stay-at-home mom). What's the BFD?
I find it funny that this is a problem, given that many are surfing the web, and POSTING ON THIS FORUM, during their supposed work time.
Sounds like trust issues if the wife feels she needs to check on her hubby on an hourly basis.Married people talk to each other for all sorts of reasons other than "checking on" each other. Some of us just enjoy hearing our spouse's voice. (And yes, that works with email too; if you know each other well enough, you can "hear" the written words in the author's voice.)
