I love caller ID. I don’t know how people used to live without it. These are the reasons I love caller ID.

1.  The biggest reason is obviously going to be telemarketers. I hate it when I am in the middle of something, my phone rings, I stop what I’m doing and answer the phone. It’s some guy in retail sales management telling me I need him to manage my retail company. I don’t have a retail company. I do not need a guy in retail sales management to help me with anything.

2. Caller ID comes in very handy when that guy calls that you don’t want to go out with. He’s the one who keeps calling and isn’t getting the hint? He just keeps calling. Caller ID gives you a chance to prepare yourself and come up with a good excuse, or just muster up the guts to tell him you are not interested. Either way, it’s a good thing.

I’m sure there are tons more reasons why caller ID is a necessary part of the average American’s daily life. I just thought I would point that out. I hope none of us ever take Caller ID for granted again!
