1. Do you like talking on the phone? Why or why not?
Not usually. I prefer to talk in person if at all. I get too distracted talking on the phone, and don't pay close enough attention to the other person.
2. Who is the last person you talked to on the phone?
My daughter.
3. About how many telephones do you have at home?
Two cordless house phones, and one cell phone per occupant.
4. Have you encountered anyone who has really bad phone manners? What happened?
All the time. Of course, phone manners are cultural. To me the worst phone manners are when a machine calls me and then puts me on hold! (like MCI or some other mega corps).
5. Would you rather pick up the phone and call someone or write them an e-mail or a letter? Why or why not?
It depends on what needs to be said. At work I have to call lots of people and talk to them about sensitive stuff, and frankly, it wears me out. You try making several phone calls to people to tell them that they have a social disease and need to come in with their partner(s) for treatment!
I prefer to communicate with my friends via email or in person. The phone is just a tool to arrange the in person stuff.
