It’s not an exaggeration to say that hearing my phone ring fills me with an overwhelming cocktail of dread, fear and panic.
Calling someone is a million times worse. In fact, most of the time I physically can’t do it. It’s as if the phone is encased inside a solid brick wall, and there are very few situations in which I’m able to break through. I’m not even entirely certain I could do it in an emergency. I know I would definitely rather go hungry than phone for a pizza.
I can totally relate, luckily I can often ask Mr Purple to make calls for me, and thankfully my pizza delivery service I can order online.
