If I know the person I'll answer. I've had issues with this company trying to sale me health insurance, which I have no use for since I'm under my dad's until I'm 25 and being only 20. Well they'd call from a different number every time, so i would answer it thinking it was someone who had given my number to during a party or a classmate but no they wanted to sale insurance. I finally asked them nicely to quit calling me, they called the next day I went off on them. They said they wouldn't, whatever happen to respecting personal space? I have one "friend" (ESFx?) who calls all the time and she's annoying and if I don't answer right away, because I can't possibly be outside or in the shower and not take my phone with me. Will call back 10 times and I'll check my phone and it will be all these missed calls from her and I will sometimes call her back and then I'm a terrible person and I clearly hate her. WTF?! even if I'm not mad at her for calling me so many times when she accuses me of being anti-social/emo I am. then I tell her to fuck off. She's human and I can be around her when she's on meds but last time she wasn't and I wanted to kill myself (but then my car flooded so I had an excuse to leave), she has no personal space I tell her not to do something because I don't like it. I have three people in my life that I will let grab on me and she's not one of them. Now I'll give her a hug I'll give anyone a hug that's not invasion of personal space. alright so back to the phone. I answer it if I know the person and I know they aren't going to annoy me, which most of my friends call to ask if I want to do something with them so it's 5 minutes at most on the phone.
