I know most people are very attached to their cell phones. Much more so than the old land line phones. I'm not really either of those. I have a friend or two I talk to every day on the phone and sometimes Mr. Skittles will call from his cell, but that's about it.
My phone rarely rings. Except for the dreaded telemarketers. I stopped answering their calls after a brief run of fun talking with them. You may remember those posts. What I don't think I've written about before is that I used to be one of them. A telemarketer.
I tried my hand once at calling elderly people trying to sell them windows. I pictured the old people sitting there maybe waiting to hear some birth announcements about new great grandchildren or something and instead they got me. And I was not supposed to take no for an answer.
I worked there a day and a half. I couldn't do that.
Another time I did phone work was when I was trying to get people to keep track of their radio listening habits. Kind of like the Nielson ratings for tv. I did that for a few months.
These days I'll make an appointment or call for pizza. Like I said near the top, I call a friend or two. On my home phone. My cell sits silently on my desk. I take if/when I go out in my car in case I have car trouble. Too bad too cuz I like my ring tone. Tiny Dancer.
What's your ring tone?
