Why I Love Caller ID

I love Caller ID – I really do. Here’s why you should too. My business phone is a simple residential line and the number is published. Our personal phone number is unpublished. If I have to indicate a number to call for some transactions , it’s the business line.. So, I get a lot of junk calls on it.

I never answer the business phone unless Caller ID indicates it’s someone I know or expect. My operational assumption is that legitimate business callers will leave a voice mail message.

If you ever called my office, and Caller ID indicated ‘unknown’‘invalid’ or or something like that and you didn’t leave a message. …  that’s why I didn’t call you back. Duhhh!

Caller ID helps me separate the sheep from the creeps … and I love it for doing that for me.
