  • Some time last year I came back from a week off to a full voicemail box.

    One of my least favorite things in life is talking on the phone. First, I have trouble hearing, so if, for example, you were to call me and say, “My daughter needs a kidney transplant,” I might hear, “My dog lives in Sydney — as a tramp.”

    The conversation would generally deteriorate from there and I would end up looking like an idiot, which I try to avoid at all cost.
