I almost never answer my phone. I have a very strict screening process.

I don't.  I'm not much of a phone person and if I'm busy, talking on the phone can wait.

I usually do just because DS is diabetic and we deal with several drs, the pharmacy, the school, etc. It's more trouble calling people back.

If it is inconvenient or I would be rude to those I'm with I don't answer. I have voice mail for a reason.

Nope.  Just because the phone rings doens't mean one has to answer it.  That's what voicemail is for.  If it's important enough, they'll leave a message.  I only answer if is family.  Anyone else can leave a message and I'll call back.  If no message, I guess it wasn't important in the fisrt place.

No, I screen my calls.  I'm not interested on lowering my interest rate on some random card or having a free security system installed so they can case my house.  If the call is important they can leave a message.  I'll answer the phone if I recognize the number.
