But Wait...before contacting me...
Do you know that it cost $150-$350 an hour to talk to an attorney? You
wouldn’t walk into an attorney’s office and start asking him/her questions about
the law, having not first done your homework to limit your time in his office,
would you? Think of “time” as being a valuable commodity, and then you
will see the value of doing a little homework first.

note that I'm on Pacific Time
you live on the East Coast and you call me in the morning, I'm sleeping.
I won't answer the phone. I'm rarely ready to take calls before Noon
your time - 9 AM my time. Even if I get up early, say 7 am, I usually
have a lot more important things to do those first few hours, like, wake
never seem to have many late night calls, but if you are a night owl, you
can try to call me up to 10 pm Pacific Time - 1: am Eastern Time.
probably won't answer phone calls from "800/866" area codes or have "Unavailable"
or "Anonymous" in the Caller ID. I figure if you are "Unavailable"
or "Anonymous", I'll be that too!
cell phone calls
don't keep my cell with me at all times like some people I know.
I live a bit out in the country so the reception isn't very clear ("Can
you hear me now?"). Please call my home phone first and if I'm not
home, leave a message. If you are a member of the media or need to
get a hold of me quickly, call the home line first, then call my cell phone,
AND send me an email. Leave messages on both answering machines.
One of these messages will get to me.
If you have called my home number and I haven’t called you back within
a couple of days, feel free to call again or leave another message.
But, it's very likely that I'm out of town and I've not gotten your message
thoughts about cell phones…
are some people who live or die for their cell phones – they won’t go anywhere
without them. Heck, I’ve even heard people talk on their cell phones
while they sat on the toilet, and even worse, one guy talked on his cell
phone in the pew in back of me at a funeral. (I
promise that if that ever happens again, I'll get up, grab the cell phone
and throw it out the door!)
cell phone is just a phone in my pocket, sometimes forgotten, sometimes
not. I won’t answer it if I’m talking to someone, busy doing something
with my hands, or if I’m driving. However, if I know a call is coming,
I’ll put on my earpiece and wait for the call…but I won’t have fun doing
it, because I think those ear-gadgets are funny looking and uncomfortable.
So, what I’m trying to say is ; You will have a lot more luck getting me on my
home number and I’ll be much more open to helping you with your problem if you
call me there first. I don’t want to explain about what to do for your
child while in a line at Costco or while at the Doctor’s office, and etc.
I am a multi-tasker, but using a cell phone and trying
to handle groceries doesn’t work well for me.
