Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I'm currently in my mom's living room, so I speak across the room. (no, I don't live with her)

Why do all the choices assume your parents have the same status? What if only one parent is in communicado?
I know what you're thinking now - where the heck is Communicado?

When rich or powerful people propose a change, it is designed to make them richer or more powerful.

A surf break in Mexico somewhere?

Seriously though... What about those of us that communicate all the time, and shouldn't call them now, because they're probably asleep.

I talk to my mom pretty frequently, we're finally on relatively decent terms.

My dad is incapable of reasonable communication. No one outside his circle of family and friends understands his speech. He is prone to conspiracy theories and drunken ranting and raving. Sometimes he just starts yelling incoherently. Usually I find these things hilarious and can tolerate them, but last time we talked, he said some seriously hurtful and screwed-up stuff to me, so we don't talk anymore.

I communicate with my Mother on a daily basis, usually via email.

I live the way I type, FAST, with a lot of mistakes.

They post passive aggressive things to my Facebook wall and I log in monthly to check them.
