PHS – Phantom Headset Syndrome

tsrgrrlMy first day of being on the phone all day. Not perfect by a longshot but not all bad. One thing (which I had forgotten from the telemarketing days) is Phantom Headset Syndrome: the feeling of still wearing your phone headset hours after you have removed it, packed it away, taken the bus home, had dinner and thought about going to bed. Why does this happen? It is so odd. I feel like my ears are covered with foam pads and the wire cage/ gear is still on the sides of my head. I even feel the top bar. But, it’s not there. I took it off many many hours ago. I hope PHS doesn’t last very long.
