Awkwardly Asking to Speak to the Right person During a Call
Think back to your teenage years. You need to call your girlfriend, but the only way to get ahold of her is to call the family phone because that was the only phone. The phone is ringing, and beads of sweat are collecting on your brow as you wait to hear who will pick up the phone.
Hopefully, it will be your girlfriend, she knows you usually call this time of day. But it could also be her father who answers because he also knows you call this time of day. Teens these days miss all that agony as everyone has a cellphone.
