Over the last few months, I've started to realize that I hate the phone. I hate being called, and I hate having to call out. Calling someone now seems like intensely rude, hateful behavior -- "HEY, WHATEVER YOUR DOING, STOP IT AND PAY ATTENTION TO ME!!!!" Whatever I'm doing when they call, that's what I want to do. And if I call actual people, I assume that they have something they'd rather be doing (since they're in the middle of doing it) than talk to me. Having to call some business, and navigate phone trees, and wait for a customer service representative, is just Hell. As you may have guessed, at this point calling me is probably the worst way to get me to do something, like buy your product or contribute to your cause. Frankly, at this point I'd rather you just drop by. At least then you're making more of an effort than you're forcing me to make.
Is it just me, or are we all on the cusp of having our phones yanked out of the house?
