I Never Pick Up the Phone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 104 People

    Hello???

    My house phone has become obsolete, because anyone who wants me, usually calls me on my cell phone. The only function my house phone serves at the present moment is to use the phone line for fax applications. I don't even want a house phone anymore because tele marketers ...

    Why I Chose Not To Answer My Phone.

    So many people are good about picking up the cell phone. I used to be really good at it, I then found out it was a complete waste of my valuable time. I would be better reached via e-mail. Research has found that after communicating with someone, you are so enclosed to your...

    Lol

    The truth is that I have talked so much over the phone when I was younger, that I now find this a waste of time. Also there are so many people out there who ONLY waste your time with nonsense and stupidity. So I cannot say I never pick up the phone...

    My Wonderful Telephone

    I have a wonderful telephone (black and violet, furry...it's just fabulous) but I never pick it up. I used to answer in a hurry just to know who was calling (thinking it was someone who had changed my day) but it was always someone advertising something or people who wanted to...

    Can I Be Honest?

    I never pick up the phone so that I can use, "I never pick up the phone" as an excuse with all those people I don't like to talk to. Tehe. I'm a terrible person.

    I never answer my land line right away.  I always let the answering machine pick it up, and if someone worthwhile starts leaving a message, I'll pick up.  Way too many telemarketers, credit card companies, political organizations and representatives from my Internet...

    I Hate Phones

    I hate phones.  I only have one because there are occasions when I need to call someone, so I'll use it then.  But when it rings I never pick it up. People who call me (and they're not returning a call I'm making) only call to bother me.  They need me to make...
