I try to be like that, but I usually have 3 or 4 people at work trying to ask me questions or do something all at the same time...It's gotten to be a habit to split conversations several ways...I don't like it, but I have to sometimes...
If I'm on the phone and another line rings, I won't answer the other line. Unless it's
something I know is important. Same thing for when people are in the office. If I'm
talking to someone in person, and the phone rings, I'll let the call go to voice mail. I
know I hate it when I talk to someone and they stop talking to take a phone call. To
me that's the same as saying "You're not important enough for my undivided attention,
hold on while I talk to someone that I feel is more important to you". I guess it all
comes from being taught as a child to not interrupt someone when they're speaking.
