Gatsby gets so many phone calls to talk about business outside of the Egg. This says that even though he appears to be a very laied back man he is really acctruly hard working. And it also says that he is a very important man in society and their are many people depending on his opinion.

It seems to me that Gatsby is a very popular man. I do not know enough about Gatsby and his job to make an assumption that the calls are related to his job. I believe that the people calling are ones who are calling about the parties that Gatsby throws.

Gatsby get all those phone calls because they pertain to work. What most people don't know about Gatsby is that he is a very hard working man and is always working. Many people know Gatsby and his ranking in stature is much higher than most people. he is also more commonly known than most people.

Gatsby got many phone calls about business outside of the Egg. He acts like he does not put much effort into his job, but he works very hard for what he has.

Gatsby gets a lot of phone calls from buisness clients and piers. They are all long distance and far from New York. This shows that Gatsby is a hard working man and he is very busy with his work. i also thought that the calls were very mysterious coming from long distance all the time.

Gatsby gets so many phone calls for buisness. He is working, even though it seems that he just has all the money he needs. He is still trying to make a living, and he needs to take care of his job.

I presume that all the calls Gatsby is receiving are social calls. He doesn't seem to be a hard working man nor do i know much of his job to say anything.

The exact reason why Gatsby gets so many phone calls isnt stated, but i assume that they are about his job or a party he could be throwing in the future.
