Does your guy get mad when you're talking to someone else while you're on the phone with him?

I don't mean long conversations but sometimes my mom butts in and talks to me while I'm on the phone with him and he gets angry/upset and he hung up with me today because of it.

I think that's normal for anyone. I get annoyed when my friends and family start talking to someone else randomly while I'm on the phone with them.

Master isn't upset with it - he finds it fascinating to hear what's going on and just waits until whatever-it-is is cleared up. He's not close to his family, so my close family is interesting to him. And the fact that he's secure enough to know that I always get back to him.

Mad, no. Annoyed, yes, because it's usually our kid that's asking some random questions that could have waited. I get annoyed too if I'm talking with someone and they're carrying on another conversation with someone.

Not really.. I think that's a little ridiculous. I get annoyed when he completely ignores me for some reason, but I never really do that to him, so idk if it would upset him.

He used to be ok with it because my mom butts in A LOT.. and i always pick up the conversation again but lately he's been like "nope.. not having it" and hangs up. lol

My mate can get a little annoyed with it but for the most part he's ok. It really depends on his mood that day I guess.

I think it's rude for people to interrupt phone conversations. Unless their input is specifically requested, they can wait until I get off the phone to ask me whatever question is burning a hole in their soul; providing it's not an emergency, that is..

Yeah after he hung up with me over it my mom was like "that's a total red flag. I don't like him."

Personally, I think your mother is in the wrong here. I mean, granted it was immature and impolite of him to hang up on you, but if it's a pertinent conversation and he keeps being interrupted then I can definitely understand his frustration. Especially if your mother is commenting on the conversation itself.

Naw she just would start talking to me about something completely different and asking me questions.

My S.O doesn't get mad and if he did well he'd just have to suck it up because he does it to me all the time. Hanging up though - I think that's a bit of an over reaction.

It depends to me. If you guys are having a serious conversation and you stop that to have an in depth conversation with your mom, that's a little rude. But if you and he are just kinda shooting the shit and she asks you a quick question and he flips, that's a little over reacting.

My husband doesn't get mad if we're on the phone and I answer a question or something for someone else, but if that other conversation goes on for long enough, he'll often interrupt me to either finish our conversation or end it.

If I'm on the phone with someone, I'll ask whoever that's trying to interrupt my phone conversation to wait, it's rude to obstruct unless there's emergency involved.

Your guy has the right to be upset, but hanging up on you is a bit over.

I kinda agree with Sapphire Storm. Your mom is the one interrupting you, especially since her comments and questions are not related to your phone conversation.

If I'm on the phone and someone asks me a question, I will tell them I'm on the phone the first time. After that, I'll walk away or close a door. It's just plain rude to interrupt someone else when they're having a conversation. It's one of those things you're supposed to learn when you're a child.

It depends. I get annoyed at random conversations, with friends or room mates while she is on the phone with me, but if she is calling me on break at work and an alarm goes off a conversation related to that is completely understandable.

Even then it is mostly annoying because I don't get a "hold on one minute I have to tell X something" or any other notice, she just starts talking about something completely unrelated to what we were just talking about.
