I Never Pick Up the Phone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 108 People

    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.

    What Do You Expect After 40 Hours?

      Once more I will admi that the majority of humanity just confuse the tarnation out of me. So I am sitting there in a small cubicle that I cannot comfortably stretch out in, eyes squinting at the screen while having my ear chain to the desk as I hear cussing...

    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...

    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...

    I Never Answer the Home Phone...

    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...

    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...

    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...
