I am not the worlds best at communiCATER WITH REGARDS TO keeping in touch with people I one of the few who dont like mobiles and will often read a text and forget all about it .
I must admit the digital age has made things so much easier for keeping in touch with people and younger people are amazed that we just made arrange ments and hoped for the best .
My memory is strange prob cos aspergic and remember weird dates and times but not to carry a mobile round or charge it before coming out , i wld not like to carry it about in my hand whilst walking about so have it in my rucksack sending me quite hysterical if it goes off , It went off other day in coffee shop ( my friends luckily and well lucky their was no visit to A and E with tea splashing allover the place and my friend claiming ” you should not have asked for such a big mug mug !!
I suppose life is easier with texts or just an answer machine on the land line as said to a friend u have no answer service and not on a mobile so cld not get through.
i suppose the modern way of keeping in touch frees u up for doing other thing , can answer emails texts at a time to suit you !!
I do love my tv progs and if in the middle of watching something with my mum will say if important they will leave a message or ring back their is no need to react Pavlov s dog when the phone rings although sods law the day u carry on with tv or reading end of book will be the most important call ever and u will re gret it for ever more such is life !
I am not good with people who just ring me text with trivial news if u got something to say out with it I dont like these phone calls that go on for ever with every bit of news and it ends with me taking the phone away from ear as the person on other side makes strange wahhhhhhh noise and then come back to it and they are none the wiser this is a difficult game to play though .
I find alot of answer phone messages boring so mine says if u leave an interesting message I will get back to you this leads to problem s if i generally forget to get back to them and i get comments like ” so my message not interesting then UMMM !!
I think everyone pet hate with phones is cold calling i have Often insisted gone on a long holiday and you are speaking to the maid or screamed ” cant u see I am obviously not busy or leave me alonnnnnnnnnnnne or go awayyyyyyyyyyy and then slammed the phone down this does not always work cos on an odd occasion the cold caller has c alled me back saying ” no need to be rude !!
so really let the phone ring dont hump out of a bath to get a call about your computer is not working or you need to get a funeral plan ummm ” I will be dead so not bothered !!! if someone really want to speak to u they will find a way
as Robert FROST says FREEDOM LIES IN BEING BOLD but you can’t beat Invictus I am the master of my fate i am the captain of my soul
