    I Never Answer the Home Phone...

    Because nobody calls me there. Everybody that want's to talk to me knows to call my cell. That's the only phone I'll answer.

    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...

    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...

    It Drives Me Insane

    My aunt is driving me to the brink of insanity. She calls every day...if I don't pick up - then 2-3 times a day. No matter how much I say I am busy, it makes her try harder to get me. Now I dont pick up at all, have removed voicemail and if she calls on my cell, I just reply by e...

    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...

    Hello???

    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...

    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.

    Only Phone I Pick Up Is My Mobile
