Anyone else pace while they're on the phone?

It drives my wife absolutely nuts, but I seriously can't sit in one place when I'm on the phone. I walk from room to room as she rolls her eyes.

I've done this for as long as I can remember, and have no idea why.

Yep I pace too, but then again I hate wasting time just on the phone when I could be doing something else...I find it hard to stand still anyway though haha.

LOL, yes. My wife laughs and me for using my hands while talking on the phone too, like describing something. She’s asked me “do you think they saw that?” LOL

While I'm on the phone, I whittle on wood--with an extremely sharp, custom knife, made by a "Bob Montana," many years ago. I whittle figurines of known Deep State operatives.

Periodically I line them up in the "back 40," and do creative things with them.

I've always done that. Not sure why, but my dad does it as well. When I worked in an office, it drove my co-workers crazy.
 
Y'know, I had seen this thread earlier and thought, "nah, I don't do that", but I just realized that I totally do this when on conference calls at work.

I am also a pacer when I brush my teeth. I usually use the time to lock the vehicles for the night. Drives my wife nuts!

Yeah I pace otherwise I get really distracted, I worked from home today due to the smoke and was interviewing a candidate and found myself pacing. I plan most of my calls to family/friends when walking my dog nowadays, love my AirPods because of that.
