Do you need a list? Probably not...it would take too long.
I have numerous things that could be wrong with me just in any given day including but not limited to headaches, not enough caffeine, cramps, that knee thing, accidental paper cuts, broken nail, MY EYE!
This could become a whole series of What's Wrong With Me..
Being my own worse critic, that would be an easy thing to do..for me much easier than coming up with a list of fantastic things about me which I can totally come up with, of course, it would just take a little longer..and not so much of a series..more of a one hit wonder of sorts.
If you ask most people that know me in real life and by most I mean the ones that call me on the phone, they will tell you that I don't answer the phone.
My mom has left me messages including the word bitch. Lovingly of course.
My sister pretty much quit calling.
People leave messages on my facebook wall telling me to call them.
My own relatives even.
I don't even want to know what my husband's family says...
Even my husband bitches at me, more about the fact that his mother thinks there is something wrong with me because I don't answer the phone..
I've been asked, "What's wrong with you that you can't answer the phone?"
It's pretty serious.
People are actually surprised when I answer the phone, telling me they were ready to leave a message..it's kind of like winning the lottery.
Even back in the day when I had my Swatch phone with two receivers and three way calling, I was just not that into it. I never chatted on the phone for hours on end in high school - my mom will probably tell you different because I remember being on a call and my dad unplugging the phone from the other room but that only happened once.
I have my reasons listed HERE
It really goes deeper than that and it's not even about who's calling. People get offended thinking I am targeting them or ignoring them because I don't like them only I do it to the people that I like just as often. Once people realize it's NOT about them, we get along much better. Look, if I don't have a half an hour to spend on the phone with someone and it's you who will definitely talk my ear off for at least that long, I am not picking up.
I do not need to hear blah blah blah about your drama when I've got enough crap of my own to deal with. Drama brings me down and if I'm sitting on the other end saying "Uh Huh" the whole time, it's not my cuppa joe. It's a waste of my time and maybe I'm just talking to the wrong people. I understand the need for a supportive friend on the other end - I have no problem doing that and lending an ear when needed but who put it in the rule book that I have to pick up every time the phone rings? Is it written somewhere that there is something wrong with a person that doesn't pick up their phone on a regular basis? There probably is and I just missed the memo like usual. Maybe there is a support group I can join to help solve this obvious problem.
I cringe when my house phone rings because I don't have Caller ID anymore and 9 times out of 10, nobody is there when I do pick up..or it's a recorded message from some politician. I have picked up my husband's cell phone while it's ringing and bring it to him, holding it like a foreign object in my hand. I do not let the phone dictate what I am doing nor have I ever dropped everything to get to the phone. Most times I'm just doing something better than talking on the phone - which reminds me I need a bumper sticker that reads: "I Would Rather Be Tweeting."
So THAT's what's wrong with me...at least for most people that would be their #1 thing on the list. I prefer to consider myself evasive. Not rude. I am sorry if this is offensive to you and maybe it makes me uncouth..Not to the point where there's something wrong with me. If picking up the phone is wrong, I don't wanna be right.
What's Wrong With Me??
What's Wrong With YOU???
I think that answer depends on who you ask that question to.
Have you ever had this question asked about you or better yet to your face?
Who do you think has the longest list of What's Wrong With You?
