Poll #635079 a (hopefully) stupid question

You're in a small shop conducting one-on-one business. Your phone rings. You...

shut off the ringer. They'll either leave a message or call back.

answer, but tell the caller you're busy and will call them back later, hanging up as soon as possible.
4(44.4%)
answer (possibly making excuses), and stand there talking on the phone for as long as it takes.
0(0.0%)
answer (possibly making excuses), and exit the shop, having your phone conversation just outside the door.
0(0.0%)
do any of the above or something else, depending on who's calling (please elaborate in comments).

Somewhat-related: Why is it that it can go days, nay, weeks, without anyone coming in at lunch, and then when I start my period and it is absolutely imperative that I eat promptly if you don't want to come in and find me passed out on the floor, I get rushed as soon as I get back with food?

This is why you cram food into your mouth in the car on your way back to work so you don't have to eat at your desk.

shut off the ringer. They'll either leave a message or call back.: Most of the time

answer, but tell the caller you're busy and will call them back later, hanging up as soon as possible.: if I was expecting the call, but can't talk right now.

answer (possibly making excuses), and stand there talking on the phone for as long as it takes.: Rarely, but if it's someone I haven't heard from in a zillion years, calling out of the blue. Or if my house is on fire.

answer (possibly making excuses), and exit the shop, having your phone conversation just outside the door.: A more likely reaction to the previous situation, or if something urgent and private comes up.

My phone rings so rarely that I almost always answer it. Having said that though, I tend to look to see who's calling to check whether it's urgent first... Dean'll ring back. :-)
