Bitch on the Blog

Get me out of here into the woods

Sweethearts, I am through with the world though not any of you individually.

Just read most awful and self congratulatory reference to ‘Caller ID’. As ‘not to pick up the phone’. For heaven’s sake. Once upon a time (let’s forget before the phone was invented) there was NO ‘caller ID’. In fact, believe or not – call me a dying species: I have no caller ID. When the phone rings I’ll pick it up. Unless I am either on the loo, out of the house or can’t plain hear it ring because I am at the other end. Anyone calling me will have a reason. Usually a friendly one. Unless it’s someone after my hind. Either way …

I am beginning to hate modern technology. Other than the one that allows you to connect to me in an instant. No ID needed.





  1. No caller ID here… answer machine yes and I’m afraid that we use that to filter m in law…….. she has a habit of calling just as we are sitting down to eat or to watch or listen. Then of course there are the damn cold callers…. that’s why I have a couple of whistles by the phone…..that’s the main house ‘phone ….the other one? few callers on that one.

  2. If you don’t have a landline phone, nobody calls because you’re not in the phone book. Tom has a cell, but I don’t. Been thinking maybe we should go totally cell phones to get rid of the ‘cold’ callers. (That must mean no warm bodies behind the voice.)

  3. I can always use my neighbour’s phone Ursula. So, don’t put me on your black list.
