And not feel guilty because I am the only one he has to talk to? My Dad calls me up to 8 times a day. My Dad is almost 90 and he is living in an apartment complex thank provides his meals, cleaning and are there in the event of an emergency. I work and he calls me all the time to either read me his mail, read me a catalog he received or what he is watching on TV. I have a brother and two sisters, but they live in another state. I work and I guess he calls me all of the time because he is lonely but when he calls me it's always when I am the busiest. His timing is perfect. I try and play golf once a week and even if I tell him I am playing he stills calls me. So bad, that I leave my telephone in the car. I cannot be the only one out there with this so-called problem. Any suggestions?
