I’m at a lot of demos and protests. Sometimes it’s noisy; speakers from the stage, bullhorns, conch shells, etc. So, when I try to call Sue or she tries to call me, often we can’t hear the phone ring or hear the other if we do answer.
Create two Quick Note messages on my cell phone. These are short messages that you type in advance, then send with a couple of clicks.
So, if I text Sue a Quick Note saying “Loud demo,” she’s knows not to even try to call. After the demo has concluded and the noise subsides, I send another Quick Note saying “Loud demo over.”
