I have rules. Phone rules.

I've had a mobile phone for about 10 years. I like it. It's handy to be able to give someone a ring whenever I need to. The problem with having a mobile phone though, is that everyone else has them too, and they seem to be under the impression that because I own one, they should be able to reach me all the time.

But they can't.

You see, I have my own set of rules. I am not bound by my phone. If you call me and I'm in the middle of something, I won't answer. If you text me, I don't feel obligated to respond within 30 seconds. I've been known to come home from work and place my phone in the charging dock upstairs and not look at it for the rest of the night. Sometimes I just straight up turn the thing off. I'm social on my schedule, yo. I also don't expect anyone else to drop everything and pay attention to me when I try to call or text. It's just how I roll.

I KNOW. This is practically unheard of. But hey. What can I say? I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel.

...my phone philosophy might be closer to phobia actually. hate talking to a person when i cant see their face.
