Top 7 Good Excuses your significant other uses for not answering your call

Top 7 Good Excuses your significant other uses for not answering your call

In the day and age of the cell phone era, it’s impossible to avoid the in-laws or that friend bursting to tell you all the he-said-she-said drama that took place last night. These are a few of the excuses that have been used for not answering when those not-so-besty’s or clingy Significant others call. So how do you know if your lover is “just not into you” or cheating when they are not answering your texts/calls? Below are some commonly used excuses….

Brake for Calls

The best reason for not answering a phone call is driving. Whether it is the commute to work, the mall, school or any of the myriad of places you run each day, it is dangerous to talk on the phone when you are behind the wheel. The one problem with this excuse is that pesky stalker, who drives past your house to see if you have come home yet. You might want to find some good excuses for not answering the doorbell.

The Rice Bowl

When all else fails, they use the excuse that they  answered your phone call  in the shower and the water flooded the keypad. They now have the plausible excuse that their phone is sitting in a bowl of rice with the battery out. A little hint: If they forward the call to voicemail—BUSTED. Of course, they might need to avoid all calls for a while if they use this excuse. Their mom might have their brother call because they are are not answering their calls. It would be a bad scenario explaining why their phone was in rice at 10 a.m. but working the same night.

The Dreaded Business Meeting

Corporate America brought about mute buttons, silent mode and calls forwarded to voicemail. Cell phone etiquette dictates that phones are inactive during business meetings with the boss or clients. You now have the perfect excuse for not answering the phone when your stalker calls to ask you out for the umpteenth time. Make certain that the times you use this excuse coincide with the times you are actually at work or should be at work.

One of the most obvious reasons you cannot answer the phone is because you are in the shower. Spice it up a bit with phrases like, “He wouldn’t let me grab the phone while we are both wet.” This translates to “I had more important things happening than worrying about why your boyfriend hates your cat.” If the call is from someone like your pastor or kid’s teacher, use the obvious excuse that the pipes are too loud when the water is running for you to hear the phone.

The Kids Locked My Phone

You knew those little tax deductions would come in handy sometime. Take advantage of the wacky behavior that kids eat, live and breathe on a daily basis. When the in-laws call to brag, or your mom calls to give you the “Why can’t you be more like …” speech, give a little grin and blame the kids for locking you out of your phone. The access code is easily changed when little fingers are pushing buttons or fingering the touch-screen. That sweet phone can play the latest karaoke version of Meat Loaf’s “Bat Out of Hell” till hell freezes over, but unless you know the new code, you cannot answer that call.
Bad Reception
They are at the club with their friends and the place has really bad reception so they’ll have t call you back.  This is a classic sign of cheating!
My Cell phone is Dead
Another classic sign of a cheater! They are usually up to something or in the middle of something.
I didn’t hear the phone
The radio was too loud, I didn’t want to be rude talking on the phone in front of the clerk etc. If it happens often, you should be concerned or get their hearing checked.
