New Rule for Dropped Call

I have a new rule regarding dropped calls / disconnects.

It goes by the first letter of the last name. If you come before the other party in the alphabet, you’re the one to call back.

Hope this helps.

Dropped calls usually happen when one party or another is driving. If I'm driving, I don't take or make calls. If a call is dropped, first thing I do when calling back or if someone calls me back is ask, "Are you driving?" If the answer is yes, I'll ask that they call me back when they are off the road.

I just don't call back. If they really want to talk to me, they can re-dial. And if I am driving or busy, it can go to voice mail.

I can't rely on any of my family members to figure out the alphabet.
