Called a friend back home and he complained about my late night call. I had to laugh because it was a bit after ten on a Saturday night. Dude has turned into an old man, I didn’t bust his chops for calling me during the week at 12:30 my time.
Of course I am usually awake then so it is not that big a deal.
Besides, if you want to know what is going on with someone it is almost always better to call. Much more personal than email.
