I got a call on my cell phone the other day that displayed “unknown”. This happens alot and I know that people put blocks or anonymous settings for their phones. I never gave it much thought. Until now…

When an “unknown” call comes in, my first reaction is to NOT answer it. “Unknown” or “private” is the equivalent of sneaking up on someone and yelling, “gotcha”. I admit, I will screen calls. Not so much that I don’t want to talk to that person, but I might be involved in something else and this call can wait.

Most “unknown” callers won’t get answered. That is your loss. Why do you want to be “unknown”? You are calling me and obviously want to talk to me so why not announce yourself? If you rang my doorbell would you hide in the bushes until I answered?

It’s silly. And don’t give this single female vulnerability garbage. Here’s why. If you, single females, are making calls I would assume you are calling someone who you know thusly you know they are not stalkers.

I don’t get it. But I do know this, I won’t answer.
