Re: ot- question, non gardening.

Can't stand call waiting...really, really find it annoying. Love the
caller id, though...I , too, sometimes just choose not to pick up when I
don't want to talk to whoever is calling. Can't have an answering
machine as it is constantly filled up with messages from the hospital
staffing clerks so none of my family/friends could ever leave a message
anyway, so caller id helps screen calls. IM'ing is driving me crazy,
though...if only because it's THE way for teens to communicate now...and
my 12 year old can spend hours on the net IM'ing with her friends, just
like my sister used to do on the phone when we were growing up. Now I
know how my dad felt when he used to say she had a phone growing out of
her ear...e-gads! Looks like cool technology, though...if I ever get my
home computer back long enough to really take a look at it. LOL! Life
with kids, I guess, is never what one expected.

I dislike call waiting too and do not have it for the same reasons. I
do<br>have caller ID though, and at times have just not picked
up.<br>Kitty<br>----- Original Message ----- <br>From:
