Apparently I’m not the only person who hates talking on the phone: I had more response to my previous post than any other I’ve written. I guess I touched a nerve. Who knew? I thought my phone-loathing came out of my own personal agoraphobic, anti-social issues, but apparently a healthy majority of us resent the intrusiveness of a phone ring.
I’m wondering what other things that plague me might be more universal than I ever thought before. I mean, obviously there are universals (unless you know someone who LOVES being stuck in traffic), but I want to think more about what weird phobias and issues I might have in common with all my readers.
Like . . . anyone else hate going out at night? I’d rather be in jammies watching a TiVo’ed show than go almost anywhere, including fancy elegant soirees. Especially fancy elegant soirees. Anyone else?
I’ll keep fishing.
