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.
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.
Percent Mom is Right
100% of instances. Lesson learned.
Call your mom.*
*Call volume to Mom increased ~30% since conducting this study.
