Even if you know me well, you don’t know this. #writersbootcampZA

I hate making phone calls. HATE IT!  Even if it’s with someone I know.

I get butterflies in my tummy, my palms sweat, I try to think about what I want to say in case I screw it up.

I would far rather send a text or an email.

Having said that, I have been told that I come across as very confident and well spoken over the phone.

Inside though, I’m dying a little bit each time I dial.

The converse though, is I don’t mind if you phone me.  I will happily answer calls all day (my first few jobs were as a receptionist) rather than make a single phone call.

  1. Oh I so understand your feeling. For me the worst is if I know it’s going to be a technical call, and I don’t have all the detail/knowledge that I know is needed. But, I also hate receiving calls, and unfortunately it is part of my job to get a few a day. People have a million ways to reach me, I don’t understand why they would want to phone.
