Yeah, I’m one of the hidden ones.
“Appear Offline” on MSN Messenger, or block 90% of my contacts when I am “Online”
Never answer the home phone (except for at 4am the other morning, many gracious thanks to you, you cck-swllwng cm-dmpster of a prty btch [can I say that?] who kept silent through my groggy “Hwarrohs?” before hanging up)
Only answer the door-buzzer if I’m expecting company
Never answer unknown numbers on my cell phone (unless it’s an unknown number from Taichung or Kaohsiung at 7 in the morning, because the old person on the other end [which it invariably is - where do they get my number? Public restroom walls?] needs to be rapidly put straight that my number is not for their own personal use)
Spend my ambulation time with headphones on, head down, scowl affixed to face, just in case someone thinks I’m friendly and approachable
Just ask the veritable platoon of people I don’t spend my time with.
