Do you prefer talking on the phone or online and why? Obviously we all like online conversation or we wouldn't be here. But in general do you prefer chatting on the phone with someone or online communication.
Even before the internet and email I didn't like phone calls and I still don't. Just a quirk of mine but every time the phone rings someone either wants/needs something of me or someone has an emergency and I have to bail them out. Rarely does someone call just to visit and that one person who does is a cousin who calls about
once a year from 2 states away. She happens to have fibromyalgia too but neither of us know the other had it until last year. My daughter calls but with her I can lay the phone down, make a cup of coffee, change the oil filter in my truck, and bake a batch of chocolate chip
cookies and then return to the phone and she never knew I was gone...lol She calls and goes on about
the same things over and over and always complains. Yep, for the most part I hate it when the phone rings. There are days when it rings and I yell at the darn thing! No kidding!
Online I do fine but I do dislike the problems that it can cause since you can't see the other persons' face or body language. That can cause misunderstandings but in the long run I'll type my talk rather than listen to it.
you? Do you prefer the phone or online chatting?
