The ubiquity of cell phones

I hate that everyone has a cell phone these days. No, not that people are annoying and talk on them at inappropriate times. No, what bothers me about cell phones is calling someone who may not be home. I hate interrupting people when they are out and about. Cause most people feel the need to answer their cell whenever it rings. I don't. But lotta people do. And I don't want to have a short abbreviated phone call with them. I'd rather they call me back when they do have time. So my phone calls to people on cells are often that. And if they answer and I tell them that, people's memories being what they are, they forget. I get better return call rates when I can just leave a message.

So right now I want to call someone, but I know she's not in a spot where she can talk. Debating on calling anyway. Or just waiting an hour or so until I know she's likely done.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
