If you are at a really good point in a book and the phone rings or the door bell rings, do you stop reading or let the phone or door bell go unanswered?
Honestly? If my phone is sitting beside me, I'd check who was calling and then decide whether I was going to answer it. Some people really like to talk and I just don't, especially if I'm in the middle of a book!
If there is a knock at the door, I'd debate whether or not they knew I was in and would probably go to answer it so slowly they'd hopefully be gone by the time I got there! lol.
The only time I'd jump up to answer the door would be if I was expecting someone or something, like a parcel, but I wouldn't be happy about it.
What about you? What would you do?
