The Phone Call You Don't Want To Answer

We receive all sorts of phone calls, but among the most annoying, more so than the solicitors, is the person who call you all the time just to complain about their lives.

When your phone rings, you can psychically sense it is that person but the way you tense up, or perhaps you can 'psych' on the person's face or name, or the time of the call.

With answers machine and caller ID, you can now avoid the person, but not for long.

They track you down by calling endlessly, looking for you on IM, forever wanting to tell you their problems.

This person never calls to tell you something positive, or ask about your life.

It is always about their endless dramas.

The answer depends on your relationship with the person, as you can't hide forever. You may be able to break the pattern by saying you are too busy, find endless other excuses, or just give in and listen.

The funny thing is...they don't usually want your advice. They just want you to listen!

We know that people multitask, so if you are the complainer not the complainee, you be sure that the person on the other side of the wire is listening, I mean really listening. they may be doing something lese, like answering their email.

If you are the one with endless complaints, best take a look at your life and outlook, and stop bothering others.

Then we have the Phone Junkie, who spends hours on the phone talking about dramas in their lives, and other gossip. A bit of gossip is okay. But living vicariously through the dramas of others is not healthy, and spending endless hours on the phone 'talking the talk', may be annoying to the person on the other end who is too polite to hang up!

From Phone Junkie to Psychic Junkie, If you like to play the 'psychic game', it is not always to your advantage to call a psychic friend and ask them to psychic on everything little thing that happens in your life. "Psych on this and psych on that....
