Cobwebs in the Attic

“Why do you screen all of your calls like that?” Anita asked her older brother.

“I think it’s a good thing to do,” Barry said. “Most of calls I get are people trying to sell me something, getting me to contribute to some cause, or trying to scam me by attempting to extract personal information from me. I’m not going to fall for that crap.”

Sounds to like you have some latent hostility you’re dealing with,” Anita said. “What if it’s an important call?”

“No hostility, just common sense,” Barry replied. “If it’s important, the caller will leave a voicemail message and if it’s a legit call, I’ll call them back.”

“Yeah, I guess that makes sense, Anita said. “I’ll stow that advice up here in the old attic here,” she added, pointing to her head.”

“Make sure you clean out all the cobwebs up there first,” Barry said, chuckling to himself.

    That’s what I always say. If it is important they will leave a message or call back.
