    Phones

    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...

    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.

    Ever Since My Grandfather Died

    My grandfather was in the hospital and was not doing well. I was away at college and every time the phone rang I was scared it was going to be "that" phone call, my parents saying he was dead. Eventually I did get that phone call. Now, 9 years later my heart still skips...

    Only Phone I Pick Up Is My Mobile

    I will never answer the home phone as people who wanna reach me know to call my mobile. Even if the call is for me I will insist they call on the mobile as my eavesdropping family listen in on the calls. Mainly the calls that come through on the home phone are sales calls, the...

    Why I Chose Not To Answer My Phone.
