Trust me, if you're one of my customers, you're very happy that I can dispatch my service man from a chair lift.

See what I said?
If you were skiing with me and I did answer my phone, you will know that it was vital, and not just me being frivolous and self important.
Most often, my phone goes to voice mail and I check my messages when I have a moment to do so. Occasionally, I NEED to take a call.
I was skiing with a group of kids at Caberfae Peaks one day, when my cell phone(which had my business phone forwarded to it) rang. I recognized the phone as being Caberfae's number on the caller ID. Thinking it may be a kid in my group at ski patrol, and thinking "Uh Oh!" I answered it.
Nope, it was Pete saying, "Tricia, how quick can you get Terry out here to thaw the sewer line to my main lodge. Everything's backed up and we have a couple school groups here today"
I dispatched my "on call" service guy and the pipes were flowing freely in short order.
Two phone calls from one lift ride.
Wanna know how happy the skiers were that I answered the phone that day?
