Life without incoming calls [Apr. 15th, 2003|05:12 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I've been going the past week with all my phones and answering machine set to quiet, including my cellphone which isn't even on vibrate.

It's great.

But best, my callers are adapting: they're all learning to email me! Or at least emailing me requesting a phone call, which is acceptable.

The best was this:

Also, I tried calling you this morning at this number and it just gave a continuous ring. T: 503-xxx-xxxx Do I have the correct number?

Yes, yes you do. :P

Get whitaker to be your receptionist, have him say you aren't in and when people ask for your e-mail address, have him say is bf@livejournal.com

I lost my job the other week which means I lost my my company cell. What a dream come true it is to not get called out at 3am to take care of a problem. I need that like I need an asshole on my elbow.

Next you'll be demanding postal mail instead of email!
