    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.

    number, I won't call you back either, so why bother calling in the first place if you don't even have common curtisey? I actually wrote a longer story than this but my browser crashed and I lost it. Guess I should go back to writing off line and then copy/paste my stories here...
