Today's question: When you are speaking with someone, do you prefer to look them in the eye or talk over the phone?
What? What did you say? Say that again?
The hearing in my right ear is not 100%. I blame it on the crunchy granola OB-GYN who wouldn't let me take a decongestant when I was pregnant, 27 years ago. I rely a little on lip-reading when I'm having a conversation in person.
I like seeing a person's face when I'm talking to them. When you're on the phone, you can't see if they are reading the paper, rolling their eyes or even walking away from the phone when you're in the middle of an interesting story.
Don't even get me started on people that use the toilet while they chat with you. Especially the ones that TELL you they're on the toilet. The only person that gets a pass on that situation is my Mom and her 78-yr-old bladder.
There's another person that keeps me from being on the phone a lot. Meet Wilma...
Let's have a chat. But not on the phone. I'll take you out for frozen yogurt.
