thank heavens for technology

remember the days before caller id and abundant cell phones when you would screen calls through your answering machine, and then, when that call finally came that you didn't want, you would all be quiet as the persona non grata left their message, because some subconscious part of you was afraid that if you dropped a plate or the dog barked, they would hear it and know you were there?

An interesting dilemma. It's funny though, even with call display, I usually answer even if I don't recognize the number. Perhaps I should make use of this kind of screening technology...
