So, I am reposting this and making it sticky. PLEASE read this and program your phones accordingly. For a little while, at least, new posts will appear below this one. Thanks.
Please note, this has nothing to do with you. Or you. This is just a general reminder.
If you need to get in touch with us please, PLEASE, PLEASE, call us on our home line first. We get absolutely crap for cell reception at home. We have no idea what it is about a 3 story brick building that makes it impenetrable to the cell waves that AT&T sends out, but we can sometimes go 24 hours between when someone sends us a text and when we get it. Often we get random voice mail that just appears on our phones without a corresponding call.
We have a land line for a reason and this is it. Please call it first when you are looking for us. If we do not answer, then call our cell lines. If we do not answer at our cell numbers then it is a good chance that we’re unavailable because we’re 1) in church, 2) in a concert, 3) in a movie, or 4) sleeping. Leave a voice mail and we promise that we will call you back in a timely manner. Multiple messages on each line are not necessary.
