I don't like talking on the phone - even with handsfree. Mindless stuff like - meet me at Starbucks at such and such, fine.... But I work on the road and get a lot of business related calls. I have to pull over for those because I can't concentrate on driving at all.

Besides, chances are I need to take notes anyway.

Many times, on the shoulder of the 401 or 407 and some cop comes up to me to see if I'm OK. They see I'm on the phone, just give a friendly wave and take off once I acknowledge them. With my luck, I'll get taken out by a distracted driver while I'm on the shoulder!

I need to make more money to hire a chauffeur (like Rob Ford)
