Pathetic! What is WRONG with my generation? Why do we all have a panic attack when we must use the phone for phone purposes...!?
...I actually think I figured it out. -->
DIAL-UP. This alllllll stems from living through the hell that was dial-up Internet connection.
If you remember those years when 9/10 times you picked up the phone to call a friend (because we still did that in the nineties) and were subjected to those HORRIBLE BANSHEE SHRIEKS FROM HELL then you know where I'm coming from. I swear we all have PTSD from that sh*t?? It's like the whole Pavlov's Dog, thing?? The phone rings and I break into a cold sweat.
Both calls went well as could be hope for, by the way! ^-^
