Do you screen your calls

Do you screen calls on your at home days? I have one friend who is great in small doses but always rings on my work-at-home day and ties up an hour of work time. So I screen my calls and pick and choose who I talk to. Anyone else? Who are you avoiding?

  • yup I screen all my calls, just cuz it rings doesn't mean I need to answer it.

  • No. I have a home business, so lots of numbers I don't know come up on my phone. The only ones I don't answer are ones that are obviously marketers like 1800Search or USA ADS - those I don't answer. But anything that has a real person's name, I answer.

  • I get way too many calls from organizations wanting donations. So I screen all calls and only pick up when it's someone I know. If I'm unsure I let the machine get it.

  • Yup. If its from a number I dont recognize or it comes up "0" I don't bother answering. If it ends up being some I know I would hope they would leave a message.

  • I screen. Sometimes I'm not in the mood to talk to my mom - so sometimes when she calls I don't answer. I won't answer a number I don't recognize, or an "unavailable" or "unknown" number. I never answer my phone without looking who's calling. If it's important, they can leave a message.

  • Anyone i want to talk to has my cell #, so they call that. Even then, i agree with anon:49, just cuz it rings doesn't mean i'm gonna answer it. That's what voice mail/ans machines are for!

  • Heck yeah, I screen. Very few people make it through the screen. I don't like talking on the phone.

  • I always do.
