How do I explain to my extroverted friends the reason I always screen my calls?
No, I am not shy and I certainly am not so quiet I don’t actually know how to talk. The simple fact of the matter is, I don’t want to talk to you or anyone else. The ringing of the phone alone doesn’t compel me to pick it up, it only compels me to see who’s calling. Maybe I want to be alone and answering a phone will ruin that moment. Or I don’t have time to talk to you. Just because I’m reading doesn’t mean I’m not doing anything. This is one of those situation where – sincerely – it’s not you, it’s me.
