Unlike the kids of today's generation, I remember having just a home phone and being able to pick it up no matter who called. One time my Aunt Denise called and she wanted to talk to my mom. I gave the phone to my mother, and a little later my mother tells me something. Denise said I had "horrible phone manners" but since I wasn't even a teenager at the time, why expect it? I wasn't rude and it puzzled me for awhile. Then years later Denise's crazy side (I literally mean that) started to become very obvious and she managed to alienate the vast majority of her family members. Then I realized, I had phone manners, she was just insane.
