I just tell them I'm not good at guessing games, I don't know who they are...it's my phone, I'm allowed to be a rude as I like on it, the person calling better be polite.

I hate robo-calls. "Hello?" No one answers me, I hang up. Hate robo-calls.

I have a landline but hardly ever get any calls on it. I have it because it's included in my package deal through Verizon internet. I'm glad to have it though, just in case something happens to my cellphone and I need to reach someone.

The last time I got a call on my landline was several weeks ago, someone called to remind me I was late to volunteer at a charity. They left a message. I called them back and told them they reached a wrong number. Everyone who knows me knows to call my cell. A couple of times a year I might get a hang up on my messaging, but I don't pay it any mind. If it's important, they'll leave a message.

I used to run to the phone every time it rang when my parents were still alive and when I was employed. Now the telephone is for my convenience. I check my messages when it is convenient for me, similar to sitting down and reading my mail. The few people that know me understand how I do things and the rest of the world really doesn't matter.

We have a landline and I use caller-ID to decided if I want to answer. DH likes to answer and argue with the people. Our phone service is through out cable company so caller-ID comes up on the TV screen. I love that. If you are on the phone, it even shows who it is when another caller beeps in.

I can't understand why I get so many telemarketing calls on my cell phone. It started day one when I got the new number.

My DIL never answers her phone. She looks at it to see who it is then lets it go to VM. I don't like that, because I don't call to chat. I usually need to tell or ask her something that I need answered right away. Even if I leave a message, she doesn't listen to it until she "has time."

I am beginning to think the world is going to hell in a hand basket. I need to find a cause to be traumatized by. I wonder what it will get me.

You say traumatized, I say standing up for injustice.

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."

- Martin Niemöller (1892–1984), a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

I'm kinda the same way, but that's because my mom tends to call while I'm eating or preparing dinner. After that she usually texts me if she needs something. When I hear the text come in, I can yell at my phone and say "OK Google Now, What's Up" and it will read me my text, comes in handy when I have my hands in raw meat.
