However, I hate the phone. I hate it. I hate talking on the phone. I hate calling people on the phone. I just do. I also hate the way the phone wants to rule over me like a despot. It is a despot I overthrew years ago. Now I think of it more as a pitiful servant. Because of that I spend good portions of everyday not knowing where my phone is. Because of that I am often asked "Why didn't you answer your phone?" or by the more persistent "Why don't you answer your phone?"
These questions aren't new to me. I wrote a post answering them years ago. They have been popping up with an increased frequency lately so I thought I would throw these answers back out again for any who may be wondering, "Does she ever answer the phone?"
The answer is I do. But I wouldn't count on it. For an answer somewhat dated but in greater detail see below:
