    Land Line? It Collects Dust.

    Like everyone here, I have a cell phone. I also have a land line. The land line is used maybe once a week. It is my "official" number. When it rings I usually ignore it. The message will eventually be heard, but the caller ID screens calls. It is my phone, my home and my...

    No Thank You Sir.

     It's not that I don't like you. It's that at heart I don't like phones, I don't like talking. I don't mind typing to you becuase I don't have to speak. :) and I can use the delete button. I'll text you. But unless I feel like talking (which isn't often...

    I'm always paged at work. Every friggin 5 minutes, I get a page over the intercom to pick up line 101 or 102, etc. I'm always busy, so i have to stop what I'm doing and answer the damn thing. As a result, I hardly ever answer the phone when I'm home. Not that anyone really calls...

    Love Caller Id

    I love caller ID. When the phone rings if I'm busy or don't feel like talking I don't have to answer. Leave me a message and I'll call you back. On the land line it's almost always telemarketers anyway.

    I hate talking on the phone. Guilty as charged. Never was a big fan of this invention. LOL Most of the time it only rings when somebody needs me to do something for them. UGH. It's not like I don't already have enough things to do here at home. It's really annoying when I hear...

    Hardly Ever Do.

    I only answer for certain people.  If I don't know the number, I don't answer the phone.  If it's important they'll leave  a message.  I prefer texts above all else.

    Its My Phone, Not Yours.

    When my phone rings, the first thing I do is look at the caller ID. If I do not recognize the caller as a friend, I do not answer the phone. I pay the bill for that phone and it is installed in my home FOR MY CONVENIENCE. If the I recognize the ID as a telemarketer, I do not...

    "I Don't Answer the Phone When I Don't Want Too"

    I never answer the phone, unless I want to.  I'm just so grateful for the invention of caller id.  I have 2 people that are my friends, but not my best friends.  They are really rather annoying.  They are the 2 people who also chomp and chew in my ear, all the...

    Which Is Always

     Yesterday, the phone on my nightstand rang every thirty minutes, between the hours of 9am and noon. I, of course, had only just gone to bed around 4am. In my sleep-haze I must have tried to find the off switch and, failing that, thrown the phone into a box full of packing...

    No More Phone

    I had gotten so fed up with the unwanted phone calls I was getting that I had my phone cut off. For many months I used my answering machine to screen my calls but I was still getting 2 out of 3 that were unwanted.  So, I was having to clean out my voice  mail everyday...
