Do you answer your phone?

I answer my phone only for four people: my mom, my husband, my kids' school, and my best friend. I don't answer for any other friend, family member, or a number I don't know. My car insurance company calls me constantly and it gets annoying. They normally call for no reason, usually just with offers and bullshit. I've told them before that I do not answer my phone. If I need you, I'll call you.

Do you answer your phone every time it rings or do you screen your calls?

I do look to see who's calling, but normally I answer for anyone that I know. If I don't know the number though I won't answer, they can leave a message.

I don't answer my phone for anyone at all. It goes to voice mail and if I want to talk I will call them later.

I answer for my child, husband, mother, and the school as well.  If I don't recognize the number, I don't answer.

Only if I know them & want/can talk. I always answer if DH calls. My dad calls about 5 times a day, usually I answer but sometimes it's just too much.
