Okay, I don’t get one thing. Why do people insist on calling other people? I genuinely hate talking on the phone. And it’s not because I’m shy or uncomfortable talking to people. I just hate awkward silences and the pointless need to make conversation, for absolutely no reason.

So if you hate hate hate talking on the phone, like me, you’re going to love this:
