What is it about hot water that attracts
the incessant ringing of the phone?
Have you ever noticed that all can be quiet
till that longed for cuppa is about to be poured,
or the tub is hot and foamy, 
just crying out for your aching body 
to soak in it's depth?
And what is more attractive to the jangling monster
than a freshly mopped floor,
preferably one on which you've lavished
lovely hot suds.. and have just stepped over..
always to the opposite side to the phone!

Surely then, it is only drawing a logical conclusion
to say that hot water is attracted to the telephone!
