I have a policy of never texting people between the hours of 9pm and 9am, unless I know for sure they will be awake. If it's urgent, then I wouldn't be sending a text, and if it isn't urgent then it can wait until the next day.


this is a good policy! actually any kind of communication that isn't an emergency should be limited to email between these hours. as someone who has had their fair share of actual emergency phone calls that ended up being really bad stuff, i freak the eff out when i hear my phone at off times. i got a spam phone call last night at 11:25, which woke me up and i got this horrible panic feeling in my stomach, and then i just got really pissed.


Oh man, I'm so with you on that. If my phone rings between about 10 pm and 8 am, I just assume that something horrible has happened and a family member is dead or in the hospital. I've always gotten that sinking feeling when I get calls at odd times, and then one time it was my mom calling to tell me that my dad had died in an accident. So late calls are NOT okay with me anymore at all.

If any native speakers of US English have a few minutes to spare (like, max. 5), I need a couple more people to take this survey so I can wrap up a project: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1672345/S ... ories-2014 Not for mobile devices! Some people have reported pictures or words cutting off. If you see that, it's a tech issue which survey gizmo couldn't resolve.

am i the only turkey who turns off the cell phone at night? my colleagues mostly seem to be vampires, so i get woken up by skype whooping in the middle of the night if i don't -- "are you up? do you have a minute?". And emails, and phone calls, and text messages (okay, i have a land line, that only close friends and family have, so maybe i'm just lucky to be able to)
now i am responsible for a help line during the world cup and i have sticky notes all over the place saying DON'T TURN OFF THE CELL PHONE. I'm sure I'm going to turn it off and miss something dreadful and important.

on a separate note....

I'm a bit nervous about today. A few weeks ago I had a job with an agency that was a disaaaaaaaster. Poor management and lack of communication when setting up the job led to a big mess and everyone left with egg on their face (not vegan, yes, i know). However, no matter how unhappy they were, i did my job the way i normally do, and the person who hired me had already worked with me and knew how I work. So, bla bla bla, they owe me money for this job.
Instead of doing it all via phone and email, which I figured would lead to me getting angry and telling them to go to hell (again) and losing the $3000 they owe me, I decided to do something different and scary: I said how about we all meet for coffee to discuss it. They were all sort of taken aback but liked the idea. Good, right? Except the owner will be going, and I know from skinny-around-town that she is a money grubbing nasty beast and all the trouble stemmed from her. So, scary as shiitake. But I feel kind of hopeful. This is something I wouldn't have had the guts to do a few years ago. Whether I get the money or not, I'm doing what's right.

Acting like an adult: it's scary. Hold me, PPK.

It's not just you, torque. I put my cell phone into airplane mode AND turn off notification sounds when I go to bed. (I don't actually turn it off in case I want to use it because it takes so long to start up again.) I've got friends in various time zones and while they don't text me (usually ever), I do get e-mail notifications. And my night owl partner likes to send me links or play wordfeud in the middle of the night so I also get notifications about that.

If it's something really important, my mom and dad both have my and my partner's landline numbers.

I have an app that automatically silences my phone at night and while I'm at work. Works like a charm! It's called Silent Time, but I'm sure there are others out there.

I sleep through notifications so it doesn't bother me at at all, so long as it's in silent mode. it's my clock and alarm too, so being on helps for that too :)

A friend of mine is going on a trip to Ibiza with her older cousin. She is 27, he is 41. This is her first trip ever and it's with the most irresponsible person I know. I'm stressing hard about it more and more as the date approaches. I'm sure everything will be just fine but I still can't stop worrying.

I love silent time. I don't have problems at night, but it saves my sanity at work. And you can set exceptions for certain phone numbers so they still ring.

I leave mine on Flight Mode so I can call 999 quickly if I wake up and the house is on fire (I work for the FS so I can be a bit OTT about it).

I have my phone in silent mode at night. If there's a real emergency my parents and siblings have my landline number. I don't switch it off because it is my back-up alarm (okay, it's my second back-up - I'm paranoid about oversleeping and being late for work).

Do you think it'd be a problem if I put my goal for the next year as "survive it" on my self evaluation at work? Because that's all I'm feeling right now.

This is a nice story. I like those little random, yet harmless, moments with strangers.

Amazing. You'd think someone with a tattoo of California on their face would know that. I'm curious about what happens to his ink if this ballot proposition goes through in November and divides California into 7 states.*

*it won't go through. It is ludicrous.

he'll need to get that shiitake fixed pronto! or maybe he'll want to keep it old school. i allllmost started a conversation with him about being from california, but decided against it. what if he just had the tattoo on his face to remind him how much he hates california?

I applied for a sort of promotion/change of role at work that I really, really want, but I'm worried I'm not qualified enough and have gone a bit anxious.

This made me laugh so bad that I am sure the neighbours heard me.

I used to have the do not disturb thingy on my phone because I used to get texts that used to disturb my delicate sleep enquiring how I was. I had to take it off then last year when my aunt died incase of any possible family emergencies. Unfortunately my aunts husband used to make the occasional how are you type phone call at 11pm in the night because he couldn't sleep and was upset and then would get upset because he would think I was angry at him over something when in actual fact it was because I was barely conscious because of medication I was on and I would be so out of it that I wouldn't have realised that I would have been on the phone for 10 minutes with him.

So I've done a bit of reading for college, done a bit of house work, made some pretty good soda bread and watched some TV. That totally means I should go for a nap right now right?
