    Spanking Good Or Bad

    (I wrote this paper in college. I was estranged from the friend at the time and needed a topic for class. I remember the horrific experiences while in this relationship as friends with children..  We regained our friendship off and on through the years.  For many serious...

    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...

    Not A Phone Talker...

    I'm not a phone person. If someone needs to contact me they can Facebook me or chat me or something. Hell they'd even have a better time texting me lol.

    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...

    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 ...

    I Hate Answering the Phone!

    And I never listen to my voicemails! I hate how you have to drop everything and switch modes instantly when the phone rings. I mean, no one is ever just sitting around waiting for the phone to ring... are they? People are always asking me why I sound so mad on the...

    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 Never Answer the Home Phone...

    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...

    Only Phone I Pick Up Is My Mobile

    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.

    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...
