Default Annoying Inmates (in the background on the phone)

This is something that irritates the stuff out of me! When my man calls I'm expectin to be able to talk to him and hear how his day went, tell him about mine and conversate. BUT EVERYTIME he calls me another inmate decided he has something soooooooooooooooooooooo important that he has to say to him. Rarely is there a conversation without another inmate butting in. He tells them most of the time that he is tlaking to wifey and he will get at them later. But these men have alllll the time in the world to talk to one another why do they feel they gotta do it when they see a man is on the phone?! What is so important?!

I don't have to deal with it too much. Tyrone has made it clear to the other inmates to leave him alone when he is on the phone. He doesn't interrupt their phone calls so he expects them to leave him alone during his. The only time he gets bothered by them is when it's something important.

LOL..that is so funny and SO true!
Yeah it annoys me too..someone is always stopping to say something to Justin..he normally just blows it off...but last night one of the guys was messing with him that he better get off the phone cuz count was in 5 minutes and Justin didnt hear shit I was saying and it really upset me. Also there is always some BIG mouth in the background screaming about something..its like people are on an expensive phone call stfu!

lol! this happens to me too. My husband gets interrupted often, but it's by a CO usually, the other inmates are cool and leave him alone while he's talkin. we get to spend an hour on the phone everyday now, so they just butt right in. it annoys me. then he comes back saying "these dumb muther 'efers...I got all day in here and they pick now to tell me this?"

LOL that pisses me off no matter who Im talking to. If anyone calls me and then decides to talk to someone else in the background I tell them they can either talk to me or talk to the person in the background and if they dont stop I just hang up. Its ten times worse when its my boyfriend though because phone calls from him mean alot to me and I want to talk to him not listen to him talk to someone else in the background. I threaten to hang up on him when he does that although Ive never hung up on him (while he was in prison) and I most likely wouldnt it usually works.

Damn you hit the nail on the head with this one it's annoying it makes me want to go off on him I stay calm. What is it with that? Ohh if that was me have third conversation he starts talking... You know. They got to stick together, I know that just not when they see a man is having a one on one conversation with his lady:0). You feel me? Much respect...

yeah...that annoys the hell outta me too, but he tells them that he is on the phone and leave him alone for awhile, but one thing I think was pretty cute was everynight when he would call, he would have a group of guys who would follow him to the phone just to ask me what I had made for dinner that night, peopel would come up to him and say...so what is she cooking tonight...I just thought that was funny!

We don't really go through that but I always wondered why the phones are where they are. They must be near a common area and when everyone is out you can't hear for all the yelling and commotion in the background - we have a lot of "sorry babe, I didn't hear you, can you say it again." Or he says he has his finger shoved so far in his ear just to be able to hear.

LOL..happens to us all the time..so irritating. He usually answers quick and then tells them to wait till he's off the phone. But if a group of them are making a bunch of noise in the background, he starts yelling at them. Telling them to show some respect. I tell him not to be so rude ( I don't want anyone getting mad at him and causing trouble, I just want him back asap) but he says it happens to each of them when they're on the phone so basically they all just yell at each other. Sometimes I'd love to be a fly on the wall in there lol.

People do sometimes and it used to really piss me off and i'd get an attitude with him but then i thought about how sometimes when i'm talking to him my friends/family around me will ask me things and I answer them so I try to be understanding. The more annoying thing is when he calls me during a game on tv and all the people are yelling so loud over the game i can barely hear him.

That is disrespectful, and I've had my share of complaining about it just like my husband will complain if people in my home are nagging on me for something during our conversations!
We only get 20 minutes two times a week and so there's a lot of subjects we need to get in before we're cut off. We don't have time for other peoples issues!

Yea the other guys yelling and being really loud in the background can be annoying but we can tune that out. What really gets to me is when my man will say "baby can you call so and so for my celly" and if i do than the person that i call will want me to sit there and pass messages to her man for her... sometimes i just want to scream " I"M PAYING GOOD MONEY TO TALK TO MY MAN AND MAYBE YOU SHOULD DO THE SAME!" then if I check TJ for even asking me to do that and wasting our phone time it ruins our whole conversation.... ***AH frustrations!!!***

People aren't usually trying to talk to him but the background noise is always so loud. It's really a pain in the ass....especially when we're having one of "Those" conversations and I'm trying to ..... well, you know
