I always wondered if I had a mild fear of telephones. Not the actual phone itself, just making calls to someone. A slight nervous feeling – the odd moment at the beginning when you wonder if it’s a bad time, or they can’t quite remember who you are from your voice, or something. Then I read this rather disturbing account and realised that I was being ridiculous and that a slight nervousness and preference for e-mail \ IM \ in-person communication instead is nothing compared to thinking that a hearing a ringtone is “as though someone hit you across the back of the head with a two-by-four”. Phew!
Anyway – I only mention that cause I just phoned an old friend from primary school who I haven’t seen properly for ages. Weird feeling. But lovely to speak to them again! Thanks to Rob and El Barto for shouting at me to shut up and use the damn phone
