Why do people always assume I'm screening* my calls when they get my voicemail?
Every message left on my home phone is the same.
"Hey, Sarah. It's [insert name here]. You're probably screening your calls but . . ."
I'm starting to get a complex. Why does everyone automatically assume I'm sitting on the couch screening my calls? Why doesn't it occur to them that perhaps the reason I'm not answering the phone is because I'm not home?
For the record, I go out. A lot. I have a very exciting life. So that's probably why you're getting my voicemail.
* Okay. Maybe I do screen my calls once in a while. But why does everyone have to make it sound like such a bad thing?
