It's a wonder I don't go (completely) insane

Jane has a tendency to talk on the phone VERY LOUDLY, so that everyone can hear her business. PartnerInCrime, who works in an office with a door, can hear her on the phone and loves to email me saying "Keep it down out there!!!". Ha ha ha. Just now, SilentHusband called to boast about the fact that it's a beautiful day and he's not at work. During the course of our phone conversation, Jane decided to make a phone call of her own. Keep in mind, she is a cube partition away from me.

Jane: HELLO?

SilentHusband: Is that your boss?

Me: No.

Jane: HI! IT'S JANE FROM BLOGCOMPANY!!!

SilentHusband: Hi Jane...

(SilentHusband and I continue talking)

Jane: OH! DO YOU WANT ME TO CALL YOU BACK AFTER LUNCH HOUR?!

SilentHusband: Yes, actually. This is a bad time.

Jane: OK, WELL I JUST WANTED TO ASK YOU TO ADD SOME MORE BAGELS, AND SOME TOMATOES AND ONIONS..... (pause) THE RED ONIONS!

SilentHusband: Oh yes, the red onions! They're very good. Give you gas though.

Jane: OK, THANKKEWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

SilentHusband: How do you put up with that all day?

By knowing that I can come home and bitch to you about it my dear. Aren't you lucky?

I have a girl like that at the volcanoes. She actually makes and receives phone calls on her cell phone at work. Its like, at least on the office phone, you can feign innocence, but she actually pulls out her cellphone and then talks about everything under the sun, but nothing about what's in the volcano (aka AT WORK). Ugh. Makes me want to launch her into the stratosphere... like the sulfer that appeared there after Krakatoa!
