Do you screen your calls?

Do you let it go to voicemail? Do you actually answer the phone or just check messages?

  • I don't answer if its a number I don't recognize or if its a number that doesn't show up. I don't answer if its my inlaws (DH and I share a phone) or our landlord. I usually only answer if its my parents/sister/grandparents, lol. I have social anxiety and talking on the phone, for me, is tough if its with people I'm not close to. I can't even order a pizza or call to make appointments without having to work up the nerve first, haha.

  • I dont answer phone calls sometimes when I know who it is. And I hardly ever listen to voicemails it takes entirely too much time.

  • I have caller ID and I do screen my calls. If it is an unknown name/number or someone I don't feel like talking to then I let the answering machine pick it up. If it is someone I want to talk to then I will answer it.

  • I HAVE to answer the phone at work, but at home, I definitely screen my calls... I only pick up calls from friends, really. Doesn't help that I absolutely hate talking on the phone, heh.

  • All the the time. If I don't recognize the number I let it go to voicemail.

  • I have caller ID on our home phone and do screen our calls. I'm so sick of people calling wanting donations for all kinds of crap. On my cell I have different ring tones for most people so I don't even have to check the caller ID.
