    I don't know if this topic has been on here or not so I apologize for any duplication. The cell phone is an awesome tool. I use it all the time to do all sorts of things and find it to be beyond useful. It's even great to have a conversation with someone just like you're talking on a land line. I have a tendency to pick up every call. Every time. However, there are some who call and the first thing they ask is, "Where are you?" First, it's not a concern of theirs unless there is some specific purpose to have that knowledge. I find in invasive and rude. Maybe it's just a way of saying, "Can you talk now?" or just a simple greeting. I really wish people wouldn't ask because I don't think it's of any of their concern and it rips away a shield of privacy. It's not like I'm hiding somewhere or doing something that I don't want anyone to know. It's simply a matter of living my own life privately. Quite often I ask back, "Why? Do you need me to do something?"

    Anyone else have this feeling? icon_cool.gif

    As often as I travel, I find it quite normal for people to ask me where I'm at. They may call in the morning and I'm just eating breakfast. Then if they call again in the afternoon I may be halfway across the state.

    You're absolutely right. Voice mail is a good thing. Texting too. icon_cool.gif

    Same. The question of where I am doesn't bother me. It's just a question.

    Nah, that call would be answered with "on my way to slam some skinny dude's arm on the table and call 911 to have his wrist sewn back on."

    Grunt loudly between your words and tell them you're on the john taking a dump. That'll teach them.

    It's one of those small talk questions, not really a big deal. I received very few calls, anyway, so I wish someone would call and ask me that icon_lol.gif

    Someone might ask where you are because they genuinely care about you..
