Screening Phone Calls? Aloha Friday 15 January


Seeing how it is Friday, today's question is going to require as little brain power as possible.

The question for today: Do you screen your phone calls?

Yes! Caller ID is wonderful and if I am busy I know I can ring the person back or in cases of telemarketers, I simply ignore.

Visit An Island Life for more fun Aloha Fridays.

Caller id is a gift from God LOL if my mother is calling and I just don't feel like talking I will ignore it :)

Design it Chic said...

yeah we have caller ID too.. it helped so many times:)

Happy Friday!.. oh and my Aloha is up too:)

Xmas Dolly said...

Yeah right, like I'm gonna answer for a salesman. NOT! I definitely screen my calls. If you're political or a salesman or looking for money I'm not answering. Family I always answer for. I'm afraid that one time I don't it'll be important or an emergency & I won't forgive myself.

Always! I usually let the voicemail pick up but I am really bad at checking the messages.

sheila said...

I answer it unless I see it's going to be a political message. lol

Auntie E said...

Yes we do, if I am busy and the caller ID shows a number I will call them back. Tella marketers get the machine.
Here's my Aloha Friday link for you

Yes, I definitely screen calls. Most of the time if I see it is my hubby's family I will let the voice mail pick up.

Dee said...

absolutely! I can't stand telemarketers!

Mighty M said...

Each and every one!

Diane said...

Yep..love to screen those calls.

Casy Schweickart said...

sure do...I hate having my time wasted.

Twincerely,Olga said...

always!!!

Jeremy said...

I definitely screen phone calls especially since we live in a day where people expect you to answer a cell phone no matter what you are doing or where you are located. It's very convenient to call them back with caller id. I will never answer a blocked number. Happy Friday!

Lilith Silvermane said...

Yes I do, with three teens I don't feel like talking to their "friends" if they aren't home, so I won't answer

Happy Aloha Friday!

Definitely. I can't even imagine not having caller id anymore. Also, I love having rings for various people on my cell so I don't even look to know if I should answer or not.

The Mommy-Files said...

I sure do. It's always funny to answer using the person's name. It kind of stuns them for a minute - lol!

♥ Happy Friday! ♥

I am Harriet said...

Heck yes. Time is precious to me.

Have a great Friday!

Sue said...

Yes totally! Caller ID is the best invention ever made :)

Aths said...

I don't have a landline at my apartment, but even if I did, I will definitely screen my calls. I like to know who is calling, and if I am busy, whether I can hold off answering for now.

Natalie A. said...

I definitely have screen my calls! :) Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a great Friday!

fredamans said...

I'd be lost without caller ID. I do hate the phone, and only answer to family most days. I think I'd cut it off all together if they took Caller ID away.

Buffie said...

We only use cell phones so I've setup the people I know I'll talk to with individula ring tones. Now I don't even have to look at the caller id to know if I want to talk to them or not.

JamericanSpice said...

Yes. Caller ID is wonderful. Now I don't have to talk to telemarketers! :) and if I'm deeping diaper changing, I can call someone back.

Annie said...

Well, sometimes yes and sometimes no. It depends who calls,haha.

Have a nice weekend.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Absolutely!

We ALWAYS screen calls. We have caller ID and our DISH satellite tv allows you to set it up so that each time the phone rings, the caller ID shows up on our television screen.

Becca said...

We only have cell phones...and we normally don't answer calls if we don't know who it is.

Thom said...

I always look at the caller ID is all :)

Thom said...

Crap where were my manners. Have a wonderful weekend. :)

Stacie said...

Yep I screen my calls with caller id! That way if I am not up to talking I don't have to answer the phone and can call them back later.

Whimsical Creations said...

I LOVE caller id!

Sarah Burns said...

Caller I.D. is my best friend :)

Jenni Jiggety said...

I am terrible...I only pick up the phone if I feel like talking. :-X

Mellisa Rock said...

I love my caller id!!

Cat@3KidsandUs said...

I couldn't live without caller ID, if I don't know the number it goes straight to voicemail.

Farrah from The Book Faery Reviews said...

I absolutely LOVE my caller ID...I prefer to only talk to friends and family AND I know who I might need to call back if I can't talk at the moment! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! :-)

Sue Jackson said...

We're old-fashioned - have never had caller ID! We don't answer the phone during dinner, though, and sometimes screen calls through the answering machine if we're in the middle of something.
