    Please tell me I'm not the only one. Riding with the roof open, I answer a call from my wife. Too noisy so I instinctively click the right scroll wheel to close the roof. As I click the wheel my brain realizes that I'm about to disconnect the call... but it's too late. :eek:

    And here I thought this thread was going to be about spousal obsessions...

    If you hang up on your significant other, I would recommend calling back to apologize. It's perfectly acceptable, however, to hang up on bill collectors and folks soliciting donations.

    ...or just adjust the audio volume with the left hand scroll wheel under v.8.0 and let your Tesla hang up for you...

    You are all so lucky that your wives still speak with you. Clearly you haven't owned and talked about your Tesla as long as I have.

    ...it's a little easier when your wife also drives a Tesla (see my sig below)...

    Mine does, but for her it's just a car, not a new way of looking at life. :)

    Usually my wife hangs up on me. Especially if Tesla's bluetooth is being wonky and causing problems with the connection.

    Good one, I'll have to remember that excuse the next time I need to get off the phone with my wife.

    That sounds unacceptable to me. If you owe money, it seems to me that at the very least you owe an explanation as to when you will pay.

    Your survey needs a third option "more than once" <g>
    I'm not dumb. This is bad UI. When a button does one thing nearly all the time, to map it to another thing just when you need it to do that one thing is bad UI design. Make me push the bottom button for Bluetooth functionality, just like I do when driving.
