Most of us answer the telephone with a, “Hello!” Actually that needs to be changed to, “WHAT DO YOU WANT?”

When someone calls you they want something. Sure, some want to know how you are. But, these calls are few and far apart. Most callers want you to do something for them. A lot want to sell you something. While there are those who want to come see you. If you expect an invite from someone, look in the US Mail and don’t expect one over the phone. Of course there are the ones who want “MONEY!” But, very few just call to say, “I love you!”

We do have the phone ID on phones that one can screen the “WOULD YOU?” or “SEND ME!” calls. And, the answering machines have added additional screening of these calls. But, sometimes you think that they are none of the above and answer or call back, only to be disappointed again with their demands. However, we’ll hold on to that glimmer of hope that they’ll be the, “I just called to tell you I love you. And there’s nothing you can do about that.”

P.S. Life comes at you fast, so learn to say, “NO!”
