I hate 9:05  
Just so people know I'm not whining about "oh, 9:05 that's so late," you should know that I feel sick if I get up earlier than about 9. Since I'm also recently unemployed my schedue has been rotating later as well.

Anyway, I'm really starting to hate 9:05. EVERYONE seems to phone me then. This morning is was Mr. Hangup. More often than not it's stupid illegal debt cancelation recording. But yesterday it was my Step-father telling me he was coming to visit, so I can't even just ignore calls at that time or some other solution. A few days ago it was my Ex from high school who phoned 9:05, though he was greeted with a constant stream of "Don't phone me so early" or something. I can't quite remember what I said.

So this morning I thought "I'll just go back to sleep since I didn't have to talk to Mr. Hangup." But it didn't work. Especailly with having gotten up at 9:05 yesterday to give directions.

Also because it's morning and because of an incedent with my neighbors, Mr. hangup makes me paranoid and makes me wonder if it's some person who just wants to get the naked person out of bed who can see into my house.
But I think that's more credit that I should really give myself but the half-out-of-bed paranoid feelings come up with the strangest ideas.

I hate Mr. Hangup and I hate 9:05.

Is there any reason...
you don't just turn off the ringer on your phones?

Re: Is there any reason...
Two reasons:

1) Sometimes people like my step-father phone, or contractors where I really do have to answer the phone.
2) I'd never remember to turn them back on.

Two reasons:

1) I'd never hear it because I hate having my cellphone on ring

2) I forget to keep my battery charged.

is there a reason not to just never have the ringer on and have the answering machine get it? then you can pick it up if you're awake and it's someone you need to talk to.
or at least, have no ringers near your bedroom so it can ring downstairs and you'll hear it if you're awake but not if you're asleep?
(you've probably considered all these, but... i feel like trying to be helpful :}

I'm really happy with the solution we implemented
to that problem. We keep all of our phones
upstairs with their ringers off, but we
have a computer listening to the line and
sending zephyrs when the phone rings.
It also sends callerid information and
keeps a call log.

This means that when I'm likely to want to
answer the phone, I'll be able to, but I won't
be woken up when stupid people call me at 9:05.
