"No phone, no phone. I just want to be alone today. No phone, no phone."
Here is something that really bothers me: awkward phone conversations. I've found that there are usually two reasons I think a phone conversation is awkward.
1) People call me all the time and unsuccessfully try to shoot the breeze with me when really they're calling for a specific reason. Usually a favor, and that's fine. I have no issues with a call starting with "Hey, hi..how's it going? So, I totally need a favor." For those of you who do that, I applaud you.
2) Some people are just awkward on the phone, thus, an awkward phone conversation ensues. I recently talked in length about this very phenomenon with JUSTIN. We talked about this for a very long time and I was pleased with how long the conversation flowed and how it remained interesting. This was a good example of a non-awkward phone conversation. I love chit-chatting on the phone when time allows, and not all phone calls need a reason, but sometimes people are just bad at the chit-chat and should simply take care of business.
K. Talk to you later. Bye.
