Inspired by my roommate: If your phone rings while you're in the shower, do you get out to answer it?

That's what VM is for. Leave a msg or text me. Otherwise, it wasn't very important to you so no reason for it to be that important to me. I'll catch you later.

Unless it's my parents I ignore phone calls and just text a person back. It saves awkward conversations, "hey what you doin" "oh just sitting naked cause I just got out of the shower talking to you"
I don't want that conversation!

Who does it? I'm not a president of the world. Whatever it is it can wait 10 minutes.

I don't answer my phone ever but I have taken my phone into the shower with me to answer a text, not under the water though, obviously.

Only if I'm expecting an important call, but I usually no. I don't even answer it if I'm holding it in my hand!

Nah I stay in the shower and answer it cause I have a Galaxy S5 and it's waterproof. Plus usually it's a telemarketer and it's fun to make it awkward for them.

It's water resistant, not waterproof. Just wanted to point that out.

If I can tell by the ring that it's my wife, then yes. Otherwise, no.

Ha! The only thing I hate worse than talking on the phone is listening to voicemail ☺

Only if it's work, I'll answer. Otherwise, no. You can wait 30 minutes.

It is doubtful that I'll answer my phone even if I'm not in the shower. So when I am in the shower is out of the question.

On a side note, having a phone in the bathroom while showering isn't a good idea, unless you have some sort of waterproof case on it.

Any type of moisture can cause damage.

Hmmm. Maybe that explains the shortened life span of our cell phones since we moved to the PacNW... where it rains... a lot... & often. Plus we now spend 6-7 mths of the year on the Oregon Coast...

The phone may be important, but it is rarely urgent unless it rings twice from my mom or kids.

Nope, the shower is my "me" time and it doesn't even last that long.

This. Only from a particular ringtone or if it's two calls right in a row. That our 911

Not usually, unless I'm expecting a call but still trying to get a shower in.

I'll see who it is, but wait until I get out to call them back.

I'll get out to see who it is. If its someone that can wait I would get back in the shower. If its someone important then i would answer.

For some reason youtube doesn't! I usually pick a random playlist from there.

Not unless its someone that I think would like to hear me while I'm naked.

That pretty much lets them know you're naked. :-)

Mostly no. Rarely, yes. I have glass door to my shower so I leave the phone on the other side. If it's someone with my kids at the time I'm showering, I answer. If my kids are home, the phone doesn't even make it into the bathroom.

It's some friend. She's now talking to them on speaker phone while wrapped in a towel in the bathroom lol. I think her friend is having stress problems.

I'm a guy and I wouldn't get out of the shower to answer my phone. I'm not under the impression that I'm so important that someone needs to get a hold of me this second. People can wait, especially for five minutes.
