I have this problem with a couple of friends and it is never something urgent, it is like they think whatever they want is more important than whatever it is

Maybe your son is trying to teach you to give him some space. It is very rude to haunt people that way, that's why people have answering machines and voice mail. Have you consider that there are some people who view phones as machines that work for them and not the other way around? Life is too short to obsess over a phone.

Well then he's the one that needs to be taught a lesson.

Let's just agree to disagree. I think it is very self-centered to expect others to drop everything just because you want to talk on the phone. I suspect this is an issue in your relationship with your son and that's why he comes up with things like he forgot his

First, my son was brought up to NEVER lie and to respect others.

Why not just turn off the ringer on your phone if you are not interested in talking?

I find the way that alot of people screen calls to be rude and insensitive.

I have a few close friends, that no book or gardening would keep me from answering their call. And there are a few others. I think it's rude not to.

Emily, attacking Hearto about her relationship with her son was uncalled for.
