yes. yes yes yes. The only thing worse is calling and listening to voicemail, I can’t stand it. 

When people ask to contact me by phone, I tell them to email instead.

I hate it too.

I stopped answering my phone and my business phone.  I make everyone else answer it (at work)

I feel Interuppted, put on the spot, bored and anxious.

It causes me a lot of anxiety. The only person I actually call is my mom. Everyone else I text or email!!

YES. Especially when people send me an email or Facebook message saying “call me.” Sometimes a phone call is necessary, most of the times is not. This makes me irrationally cranky.

gotta say, I’m not a fan of texting either. Basically having to interrupt the flow of my activity to communicate upsets me. I guess I’m crossing my fingers for the day they develop telepathy for the average person. Not too much to ask, right?

@crayfish:  This exactly. My mom is basically the only person I talk to on the phone. Even Fiance, I could probably count the number of phone conversations we’ve had in all our time together (it would be less than 10).  Last month, my cell phone died and I had to call him to come pick me up and I had to psyche myself up before actually calling. It’s my fiancé, for goodness sake!

YES! I HATE TALKING ON THE PHONE. Most of the time I feel like the phone call was not that important.  Usually the person should just text or email!! I feel awkard and I hate that other people can hear my entire conversation.  Only time I enjoy talking on the phone is when my SO is away working and I get to hear his voice.  Other than that, DON’T CALL ME!! lol

I don’t like it either most of the time. I don’t mind talking to my stepdad or FH, but I’m a get to the point and end the conversation kind of person, and my stepdad is like that. My mom is ok too, but we mostly text.

Mostly I just get irritated at the thought of getting a phone call.

yes! I hate it! I tend to not answer my phone if it’s a friend that I know will talk my ear off. It’s funny because in HS I was ALWAYS on the phone! Now, no way. I coudn’t tell you the last time I had more than a 5 minute phone convo.

Me! Unless it is very specific people. Otherwise I dread it. Voicemails are the worst though. I refuse to listen to them. I’d rather just read it quickly and be done with it. Though I did spend 6 hours on the phone with my first boyfriend. I blame young love and no licenses!
