Older people like phone calls and younger people don’t. In general. Maybe the line is around 40 give or take a few years.
It’s well documented that millennials (age 25–40 or so) think phone calls are inefficient. The younger you are, the more you think phone calls are dumb. If you have a question for someone you bang out a text message - sent - done. Probably the answer comes back in seconds. How easy was that? Phone calls are so tedious and a waste of time.
“And if you want to talk on the phone with me,” the under-40 is thinking, “schedule it. Calling someone without warning is so rude.” The idea is that a text or email allows the recipient to respond at their convenience. A phone call is an instant demand for attention.
