    Yup, yesterday Calvin hung up on a call in his own unique style; a call that his mother was expecting.

    How will she keep Calvin from picking up before the machine kicks in?

    Dad is channeling my father in this one.

    I’m beginning to see where Calvin gets his attitude from.

    Dad has a point. That’s why I prefer email. It takes much less time to ignore it.

    Answering machines allow you to ignore the phone and erase the messages as you see fit. :P If it IS someone you want to talk to, then you can simply call them back. The rest of the callers can go hang. LOL

    I love Calvin, but I like just seeing his parents alone in a strip once in a while. They can definitely hold their own, and the way they talk about him sometimes, it makes his bad behavior seem almost legendary. :)

    I switched over from a landline with an answering machine (primarily for screening calls: just pick up if it was someone I wanted to talk to) to strictly a cellphone. Despite telling her I no longer had an answering machine, for two weeks, my mother’s voicemails to me always started, “emjaycee, pick up the phone. I know you’re there. (pause) This is your mother. Pick up the phone. (pause) Stop screening your calls. Pick up the phone.” Finally dawned on her that I could not screen a voicemail on a cellphone. Oy.
