Cait

Thought Noodle

I wanted to see how much truth was in the the phrase "you never call home," so I scraped my call history for the month of January to find truth in the data. 

Findings

Volume of Chit Chat  

Not only is Mom only 5% of call volume, I chat with her significantly less than calls from friends or work. Shame on me.

Frequency of "Picking up the Damn Phone" 

Mom also calls me disproportionately more than I call her. Unforgivable.
