I could be at home. I do answer the phone when I'm home, but I don't always have it in my hand or pocket. If I'm in my basement folding laundry while wearing clothes with no pockets I won't have my phone nearby.

We have a no electronics at the table rule in our house.

Or the doctor's office (remember.... 4 kids.... ), out walking or some other place where it is not polite, appropriate or safe for me to be talking on the phone. It's not that I don't want to take your call, I'm just not in a good spot to give you my undivided attention.
So I love voice mail. Don't hang up, leave me a message! I will call you back.
