Anita posted today about phones and her dislike of them. I just gotta chime in here. I HATE talking on the phone. No particular reason for it, I just can't stand it. E-mail me, IM me, write to me the old fashioned way, or don't bother. I just can't deal with talking on the phone. I never had that phase that all teenage girls are supposed to go through where they talk on the phone for hours about nothing. I have always disliked the phone. It's not some kind of phobia or anything. I just don't like it. I hate subscriptions where you can sign up online, but you have to call and talk to one of their sales guys to cancel. I hate calling a restaurant or store to find out their hours or get directions. I can not deal with telemarketers. It's so bad that both of the phones in our house are in some way disfunctional, and yet I feel no compulsion to replace either of them. They've been that way for a couple of years now. I have a cell phone that I can use when I need to, but I DO NOT use it as I am driving 80 mph down the highway.
Anyone else out there have some seemingly normal object/technology/whatever that just annoys them to no end? Or is it just me???
