Oh, what a nice trip down memory lane reading this thread has been! ... And I still don't answer my phone.
Ha. By contrast:

This still rings () true four years later. I usually answer my phone, unless I've left my cell in a pocket or on a shelf in another room.
"Weird numbers from other area codes" are almost always telemarketers or autodialers, that's why I don't answer them.
Falcaius never answers his land-line, as it is never for him. His mobile phone he only picks up if he knows who rang him.
At work Falcarius has to answer the general enquiries line to callers to his work. He is pretty sure reason he has that task as part of his job is the same reason he issues parking permits at his work: he hate telephones nearly as much as he hates cars. When someone gets though to Falcarius he pretty much tells them to e-mail instead so he does not have to deal with it.
