My job requies me to make quite a few phone calls, and that is okay. But since my illness, I don’t like when people call with something that could be put down on paper (email or text). Honestly, I never have liked phone calls, since almost always I am doing something and dislike the interruption, but since my illness a few years ago I truly dread when my phone rings, I think because I don’t feel well and it takes all I have just to keep things moving forward. I don’t mind in-person meetings or emails, but hate phone calls. Go figure… Unfortunately, so many of my peers insist on phone calls (especially in Sales Management) rather tahn emails, so that is a bummer.
