I'm not the most talkative person out there. When having a conversation with someone I normally just sit there and listen while nodding my head. When you are in a phone call you are stuck there with there person blabbing and blabbing in your ear. Then there are those awkward silences when you don't know what to say. I always struggle with telling someone that I have to get off the phone too. It's like "Welllll, I'm gonna go take a shower." That's my typical excuse. I'd much rather text. At least with texting you don't have to respond back right away or you can take a few moments to come up with a decent response so you don't have to just keep saying, "uh huh" over and over again.
