Today, it’s easy to avoid talking to people you don’t want to talk to. There are two ways:
- First, you can use call block. With technology, this can be done by visiting a website. But this doesn’t always work. People who are smart can just call you from another phone. However, most of the people you’d want to block wouldn’t even think of this.
- Second, there’s a more practical way. All phones have caller ID. If you don’t want to talk to someone who’s calling you, don’t answer the phone.
In the old days, when the web was something spiders crawled, the net was what you caught fish in, and caller ID only meant recognizing the voice on the other end of the phone line, this is how people blocked callers to avoid talking to them.
