I made a new rule a while back... I don't answer the phone when I'm on my way out of the house.
Never fails, I mean to bring something to a party... or something I'm supposed to return to store on that side of town... and if I'm talking on the phone, I ALWAYS forget something I'm supposed to bring with me. So finally it's a rule... no answering the phone.
Which leads me to...
Am I the only one who gets annoyed when you're on your way to meet someone, or on your way to an event... and the person you're meeting keeps calling your cell phone while you're driving there?
Maybe it's just me, but it's so annoying. Perhaps it's because, hey.. I'm going to see you in two freaking minutes! Keep your pants on!
Maybe it's because I can remember when we couldn't reach people instantly, and if you said you were going to be there, you were going to be there. I guess it makes me feel like they're doubting my commitment to the commitment.
Sort of makes me think of why I'm a cat person, not a dog person. The person who needs to know you're on your way is needy, like a dog. I prefer those who chill out and wait, like a cat.
Just a thought I've been sitting on today.
