Sorry.... but I don't do Phones!!! Try as I may...over these many many years of trying like heck to be a phone person... I just have never ever picked up the habit...believe me, I have tried.
I am pretty sure I am not the only one out there that feels this way...although we are probably pretty hard to track down..I mean, not using the phone and all to call in our opinions!
Even as a teenager (you remember them, the ones that adored being on the phones for hours upon hours talking to boyfriends and girlfriends saying absolutely nothing ...those teenagers) ...anyway...even when I was one of those...I was never one of those. My Mom said I hated the phone even then...GOD LORD, in thinking back..maybe I have one of those weird Phone Phobias...like 'Phonaphobiclacia' or 'Ringadeckaphobia' or 'Wrongnumberlocious' ... all I know is that phones and I don't agree very much...I am more of a 'in person' kinda gal.... although I do like the computer...but if it had a head phone...forgetaboutit.
It's not that I don't like who is at the other end of the receiver...I LOVE everyone and actually enjoy chatting at times...but most of the time...I truly believe the phone is out to get me....like it is a 'personal' thing!! You see...as I work at home...there is a phone... and it seems that always when I start to really get into work...it rings....I stop...I go to answer...and it is either someone selling something...or....they hang up. I got an answer machine...those that know about my little 'phone thing' always leave a message because they know when I work...I seldom answer the phone....others do not....yet the phone rings and rings and rings and rings...every 5 minutes with no messages left... Drives me Bazonko!!. I feel bad that I feel this way... but if I could I would rid myself of the plastic beast in a nanosecond... but alas that is not practical. We have 1 cell phone...just in case heading across the desert in 120 degree summer heat and our car breaks down...then those little suckers are handy dandy...but I could not tell you the number to save my soul and it is always off!!!
As I said...I am not a hater of people or chat, both are super dooper in my book... I just have an enormous dislike for the Phone Monster ....
Not sure why I chose to blog about this subject...other than I counted no less than 28 calls today...ALL hang ups!! GRRRRRRRRR.
Now you wait and see...when I sit down tonight in front of the TV with my glass of Zin and a good movie...guess what will happen....Yep! Phonezilla will attack .... it lays in wait for me!!!
