If your S/O is not home do you answer the phone??

I used to answer their calls however now I dont. My FIL has become slightly annoying with calling everyday to ask " hows it going" and then expecting me to do all the talking. Then their is my MIL ( her and FIL are no longer married) she only calls whhen she wants something or to call and tell lies to my kids. She will say shit like: "oh boys I can wait to come over again so we can just play and play" she gets them excited then never comes over. She has only seen our children 3 times since 2 days before last Christmas. Yeah sad isnt it. MIL is a total bitch for many reasons.... Anyway what about you? I dont if its imporant they can leave a message.

Of course, I love them like they're my own parents. At least half the time they're calling for me anyway.

My mil is cucko for coco-puffs. She always calls dh's cell. Sometimes when he doesn't answer she will call mine. I don't answer. For reals-she's psycho!

I will answer the phone. If it's my FIL I'll chat with him. If it's my MIL... I simply say "I'll let him know you called" *click*.

My MIL and I do not get along at all. But my FIL and I get along great.

 Thank goodness they don't call on the house phone lol. Also, my DH mom calls him on his cell phone I do not speak to her other than a hi from next to him. I wouldn't answer the phone though.

MIL only calls our house phone if ss is over here and asks how our ds is doing but really just calls for ss. It's like clockwork on the days we have ss. I unplug the phone :)
She calls my cell sometimes and I'll answer and its usually to talk about ss or ss's BM or our ds. She talks to dh almost every day if not on the phone through text.
FIL calls sometimes but knows we like our privacy so he checks in from time to time but we see both of them every Saturday for ss's games and lunch after.
I don't dislike them but I don't love them either

I call my mil and fil all the time and am thrilled when they call me. I lost my parents and a beloved Uncle and Aunt. My mil can be longwinded at times.
