    Why do Boomers have to "get on a phone call"?

    Every single Boomer in my work sphere will get an email from me asking them a question and they will send me one back saying "Can you give me a call?"

    WHY THE HELL DO WE NEED TO HAVE A CALL? I emailed you...and you LITERALLY emailed me back to say "call me"....just tell me what you want today in the effing email, you dinosaur.

    Worse is when I have an issue that needs to go to someone else through that initial person and that person then decides we need a conference call....so a bunch of Boomers can talk at each other to work out what I asked about....when we very well could have solved it quicker with emails. This happens far too often.

    My mom does this as well...she will phone me with some purpose, get my Voicemail and leave a voice mail saying to 'call her back'...TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT IN THE VOICEMAIL MOM. Sidebar: I talk to my mom once every two days or so, so it's not like she just wants to talk to me mother to son...we do that already...those 'call me' voicemails are always about a topic that she could very well relate to me in that form.

    I don't get what it is that frightens Boomers about technology like texting and emails. My gods...I don't get it.

    I see this often in construction but it's usually to avoid having a paper trail later on. Very popular with some older developers when they want to expedite a project but not be liable for poor design choices, "Oh I didn't expect it to look like this! Why did you do things this way? ... I never said that and you have nothing in writing to prove it!"

    I confess - I was absent for a time period that by any standards was too long. In my defence, I did not have access to the interent for some time and it has been a very busy year - yea for the holiday period! :D
