Why I don’t answer most phone calls
Adrien Joly

When I got a mobile phone years ago — it was NOT to always check it and to pick up at any time. Sometimes I am simply not available or don’t want to be — so I do not answer and have the phone on silent. If it is important then the caller will leave a message or send a text. And I fully agree with Adrien — verbal agreements on the phone without any follow up e-mail to confirm may really cause issues if the caller fails to remember things (my memory on agreements is like an elephant’s).
