    What about dealing with strangers on the phone?

    For some reason, having to call someone I don't know at all makes me really nervous, like no other sort of interaction ever does. Usually it's fine once I'm talking to them, but just before and while dialling, eek. I don't know - perhaps the complete unknown on the other side? I must subconsciously use a lot of visual cues when I communicate with people, or something.

    I've always hated the phone although having had several jobs that required spending lots of time on the phone has pretty much gotten me over my aversion. The one exception is calling the pizza guy. I refuse to do it. Fortunately you can order delivery online now or I'd probably starve to death.

    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    15 minutes? I don't think I ever talked that much on the phone. I'm usually out of things to say in a couple mins (that's because I use it only when there's actually something important to tell). My girlfriend might have kept me on for 5-10 minutes sometimes, I'm not sure, but she does all the talking anyway.

    I can last about two to five minutes without getting distracted or board on the phone. Lot of the time I will have conversations with other people that are in the room,(a conversation that I would not normally bother having if I wasn't on the phone) while I am on the phone because then I have to pay attention to two people at once and it becomes a challenge rather that a boring phone conversation. I also like talking to people when they are on the phone, if they are on the phone with someone I know that I might want to talk to, this means that I don't have to call them because I already talked to them.

    The phone sucks. I only like talking on the phone if it's task-oriented. If you want to chat with me, your best bet is texting or IMing. They're they only forms of non-face-to-face communication that aren't boring or intimidating. With email, sometimes I'll procrastinate replying b/c I want to formulate a really good response, but then it seems like a lot of work. :-P

    I ALWAYS multitask when on the phone. That's just too much time to be tied down, not able to do anything.

    Wow, how the heck can you talk for that long on the phone anyway. I am supposedly a loudmouth talker, but more than two minutes on the phone and I am going to start blowing on the mic (static) and then somehow lose signal for the next three days.

    Yup, I start gettin' all antsy and stuff. I want to be free and I feel like I'm chains or being smothered by a pillow or something.
