    I wouldnt say your a weirdo lol I know plenty people that hate chatting on the phone.

    I dont mind phoning people but see as soon as an answering phone comes on i hang up lol :p think i left my first machine messege last week because no one else in my work would do it and our donation box was full and we had to contact our local shelter, so i got the gutts and just left a messege.

    Im sure theres lots of people out there that dont like making phone calls :p

    I would text him, but his bloody phone is broken so I can only get hold of him over a landline :rolleyes: it's been broken for over a week now, it's doing my nut in! He hasn't got the internet either (that is on his phone) so I can't get hold of him unless I ring the house phone, and I hate doing it :(

    he's gonna think im a right ignorant cow :(

    I get well nervous having to ring people, it can take me days to pluck up the courage to do it, I just keep putting it off :rolleyes:

    LOL I do that too! I go from one extreme to the other..... either don't say anything or I just don't shut up LOL it's so awkward when you go to say something at the same time as someone else on the phone and then you both go quiet waiting for each other to speak, and you both end up speaking at the same time again LOL it makes me want to hang up and cry :laugh:

    Yeah, I usually do that! But then when i'm actually having the conversation, I get nervous cos I forget what I was gonna say next and it all gets mucked up LOL

    ...Makes it worse that my dad is still in bed cos he's on nights, so i'm gonna have to like whisper down the phone to him LOL he's gonna think im some sort of stalker :lol:

    That's even worse :eek:

    I want him to ring me but he can't cos he doesn't have my home number and he can't get my mobile number from his phone :rolleyes: why can't he just borrow someone elses phone until he gets his fixed :(

    Perhaps he'll pop round later or something, he has a habit of turning up at my house at inappropriate moments (like when im still in bed at 1pm) :eek:

    It was horrible i was so worried and then i just burst out laughing on one of the phone calls because one was pertend so i knew who i was speaking to and had to pertend to make a convo like i was talking to some one that had an injured animals...and the person i was perteding to was messing around saying she had an injuried lion to bring in :eek:ut: hahaa it was awful!!

    On the real one its was even worse because i couldnt laugh i had to be serious but having some one there watching was just awful.im so glad i done it and have passed...i dont know why im so bad with phone calls :eek:ut:
