I Never Pick Up the Phone

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    My Wonderful Telephone

    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...

    Why I Chose Not To Answer My Phone.
