Having a landline installed in my house next week, and my mother's. IT DRIVES ME MAD HOW HALF THE TIME PEOPLE DON't ANSWER THEIR PHONES BC THEY'RE ON SILENT OR IN THEIR PURSE SOMEWHERE.
Once I ran out of gas and my DH was napping and his phone was on silent. A passerby helped me.

Maybe I am old, but I can't wait to pick up the phone, hear a dial tone, and call my mother' house, and her answer. Same as I like having a landline to be reachable by anyone, as long as I'm home.
My watch buzzes when I get a call and I don’t need to be home to answer it.

I used to have this issue. Now with my smart watch I get notified of all my calls and never miss calls anymore.

This isn't at all meant to be a snooty comment but I have a Rolex so I don't think I'll ever succumb to the smartwatch fad.

That is neat that they solve that problem, though.

Funny enough, but my in-laws finally succumbed and got smart watches and left their Rolexes on the nightstand. They still of course can say they own a Rolex, but for just hanging around the house and doing errands and what not, they get more use out of the smart watches.
