I hate using the phone to make appointments or schedule things. HATE IT. Now, there are times when I feel like phone calls are easier than emails – especially if you’re trying to get technical help on something – but for the most part I would MUCH prefer text and emails and online chat/contact forms. HOWEVER, there are some businesses (especially small local businesses) who just work over the phone. And recently? With this last move and remodel and with the kids changing schools etc? I’ve had to make more phone calls than I have in the several years before. IT HAS BEEN TERRIBLE. Many of these people I had to call several times due to scheduling issues or changes in situations. This has all been in just the last 2 months! IT HAS BEEN AWFUL! And I’ve tried to do a lot of this by email or contact forms on webpages but some people just do NOT answer those things and so I have to pick up the phone.
FEEL MY PAIN.

Is it just me or is making phone calls the worst thing ever?
