Things That Happen Too Often
I call someone.
They don’t answer their phone.
They say to leave a message.
I’m leaving a message.
While I’m leaving a message my call waiting beeps.
They are calling me back while I’m leaving them a message.
I flip over to them calling me back and tell them I’m leaving them a message.
They say, “Hmmm.”
Then we talk about what we needed to talk about.
Then we hang up.
Then my phone rings.
It’s the call waiting calling me back from when I was leaving them a message.
I realize what it is and I hang up the phone.
Fifteen minutes later the phone rings.
It’s the number of the person who I called before.
I answer the phone.
They don’t answer, but I can hear them talking, to someone else, because they have accidentally hit the redial button on their phone.
I listen to hear if they are cussing anyone out.
I get bored and hang up.
Peace to you.
