Pick up the phone!


Dear Hillary,

My wife never hears the phone when I ring her up.  It is always left in the car, or at the bottom of her handbag and she doesn’t hear it.  Have you any suggestions?


Dear Mark,

Buy her one of those lanyards that goes around her neck and the phone hangs from that.  I take it you have checked to make sure the ring tone is turned up as well.  Of course, she might be ignoring you, and in that case, nothing will work!

    You could buy her a circular had bag hanger and hang the phone on the inside of her handbag strap. She won’t have to dig for the phone and it will be high enough in her purse she’ll be able to hear it. You can cases for her phone that feature a loop and use one of those as well.
