Manic Monday #160

Manic Monday #160
By Fleur de Lisa
Do you screen your phone calls? Nope. At home I don't have any way to do this (no caller ID) but even at work and on my cell where I could do this, I don't. I was raised to think that if your phone rings you should answer it (and you'd want to talk to the person on the other end).... Of course, that was before telemarketers outnumbered friends.

When was the last time you lost your temper? Hmm...not sure. I am pretty angry over the whole financial meltdown/loss of retirement savings /greed scenario that has been playing out of late. Who really needs or deserves a bonus of $6.5 million?? As a result, I've wanted to yell out the line from the movie Network: "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!" and I suspect if I did it in a public place, I'd have lots of people joining in.

When you're lost, do you ask for directions? Of course, isn't that the SENSIBLE thing to do...unless you have access to map quest or GPS?

I only screen calls that I don't know the area code of...usually a telemarketer. But I answer all the unknown/private numbers...I can always hang up!

I lost my temper today because I got put on hold 4 different times and in the end...the call got disconnected. I got mad and just got over it.

I always get I'm not afraid to ask for directions :) It's so much easier/faster that way!

Pretty much always screen - but we have special rings for those we know & anyone in our phone's memory comes up on the screen with their we only don't answer telemarketers..
oh - and let it ring during matter who it is :)

Temper - gets lost everyday - but it stays inside & I always find it quickly :)

Lost...rarely go anywhere I don't already know :P
