Queries & Theories – Series 2 : Volume 1.
Remember when a ringing phone made you rush to pick up the receiver to find out who was on the other end? If you’re under 20, probably not. But the rest of us do.

At least for most of us. them.
Yes. New business leads come to me via phone at times and my clients also have my number, so I do answer calls with numbers I don’t recognize. But not always.Megan
I do unless it comes up as “spam risk”. Whoever developed that magical function should get a raise.Sheryl
Mostly not unless it’s a client or my mom. Everyone else gets a call back, or more likely a text message that starts with “Why are you calling me when you can send a text?”.Danette
Yes, I’ll pick it up. But if the contact is not in my address book, it gets sent to voicemail.Cecilia
No. If it’s important, the caller can leave a message. Otherwise, I assume it’s a robocall and it deserves to be ignored.Sam
Only if the number appears in my contact list or I’m expecting a call from someone important like a doctor/clinic/delivery person.Carol
Rarely. Very few people call anymore. It’s mostly text.Fred
Not if it’s from a number I don’t know. Also, not if I don’t feel like talking to you. Sorry.Beth
