|10:55 pm - Public Service Announcement:|
This is not going to be entertaining or funny, just a point of note. If you think it's directed at you, you're probably right, but it's information which may be useful to everyone. I stress that this is a general FYI, and I'm not angry or exasperated or anything like that. Anyway, the PSA:
Do not be surprised or offended if I fail to answer my phone.
Partly, I'm just a jerk who sometimes ignores calls, but mostly I actually do miss them, especially on weeknights. During the week I'm often not home until 10:00 or later. I can't say "usually," but it's often enough that if you call me during that window of time and I don't pick up, it probably means my ringer is off. I do listen to my voicemail, and your call will probably be returned the next day.
It's not personal, and I'm not avoiding you.

No offence taken. I've been tempted to call you during the afternoon a few times but I will continue to refrain.
Damn you Colin! Quit posting messages about me!
Okay, I know that wasn't about me. You know as well as I do that I rarely, if ever, call you :) Not that I don't love you to pieces or anything...I just don't.
Let's see... 608-555-5309... right?
You know, I saw a website once where somebody had gone through all of the area codes in the U.S. dialed 867-5309, and documented the responses. A surprising number were answering machines claiming that "Jenny isn't here right now..."
I totally didn't get that the first time I read it. But then I read it again and got it. I'm a little slow ...
I found that website (or a similar one). I laughed at all of the male Jennys in the recordings.
I'm actually surprised someone picked up on half the joke.

Should I be offended if I don't call you, then?
Unless your me, he hates me.
