{April 5, 2011}   Why I hate phones….

Just got off the phone with my newlywed niece. It had been too long since we had a nice chat and it was nice to get to talk to her for awhile.

Funny how I can enjoy a good chat on the phone sometimes when I have such a hatred for talking on the phone usually. I guess it’s different when I am talking to someone I haven’t had the chance to talk with in a long time. I don’t know….

I’ve just always hated talking on the phone. My husband gets frustrated with me sometimes when it comes to needing to make a phone call and I beg him to do it for me. My mom is the same way, th0ugh. There’s just something about speaking on the phone that I hate.

I also feel bad for hating it because then I wonder if all my friends who do call me EVER are going to think, So…she hates talking to me?! NO! That’s not true. In person, I could talk for hours to a friend and if we are texting or messaging or the computer, no problem. There’s just something about the phone. It’s a little better now that my cell has a speaker phone because I can set it down and do other things while I am talking. Maybe that is more what the problem is. I hate having to hold the dumb phone to my ear and feel like I am being incredibly idle. Even watching TV, I will find myself doing something with my hands.

Has anyone ever held the phone to their ear long enough where their ear gets sore? That happens to me a lot….maybe that could be why I have such a dislike for talking on the phone. Don’t get me wrong…when it comes to family that live far away and friends I haven’t heard from in a long time, I love getting to hear from them and I will gladly accept the phone call. But if I had a choice, I would always pick in person. I’m sure the family and friends would rather see me in person as well. Until then, I will just deal with my dread of the phone and be thankful that I have a way to talk to them at all!

Putting it in perspective like that helps……

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
