I Do Not Answer Numbers I Do Not Recognize

    Never

    I never answer numbers that I do recognize... I have a voice mail for a reason.I never answer calls that I do not know. I hate talking on the phone as of late so if its someone who I don't know the number for, I never answer the call.

    Not Anymore...

    Hell no. I'm too freakin' paranoid now. I had stalker issues once due to this... Then one day, many moons ago, a restricted number called and guess who it was! My father, who had somehow gotten a hold of my number! So now I no longer answer numbers I don't recognize or...

    I was filling up my car a little while ago and the numbers were BOTH even! Haha, this is the first. Sorry, but I'm OCD (about a lot of things) when it comes to numbers!
