I hate cell phones..and yet if I leave my house without mine I panic.
Maybe I should say that I hate cell phone reception/random call dropping.
This is a conversation I had last week with my youngest son (hereafter called YS) on not only my phone, but hubby’s as well.
*my phone rings – or rather plays the theme from “Halloween”*
YS: Hi Mom, I was just wond…grsl…slfla’…faower
YS: I was just..glsla..afaofi..faoeur0..
Me: I CAN’T HEAR YOU! (as if my screaming into the phone would make it somehow easier for me to hear him)
*call drops and hubby’s phone rings..or rather plays “Sweet Home Alabama”, he’s obviously not in the Halloween spirit..whatevs..*
YS: Hi Mom…I just thought…saofiaof..aa;dfa;f;a..sauwua;…..
Me: I CAN’T HEAR YOU!
YS: I SAID……
…..and the called dropped, again…..
*my phone rings…or rather…aw hell, just look up there*
YS: Mom..I….a;dflajf;p8rua.a..afglafys ….fish
Me: I get something about a “fish”.
YS: YES, I have a.a..aafafjhajf…do you…adf.afayf..aouyoat….
Me: You’re asking me about a fish, but I can’t make it out. Why don’t you text me?
*and the call dropped*
*hubby’s phone rings…blah, blah..*
YS: Dad, I just caught a 4-lb. blue cat and wondered if you guys wanted it.
Hubby: (asks me if I want it and I say “not unless he’s skinned and fileted it I don’t”) Um…your mom says no unless you’ve cleaned it already. You haven’t? Okay…thanks anyway.
*hubby hangs up phone*
Me: So, that’s what he’s been trying to tell me for the last ten minutes??
Hubby: (shrugs) I guess.
Me: Here I thought there was some major crisis since he kept calling and calling. Usually, he’ll just send a text if it’s not important. He scared me half to death…over a fish??
Hubby: I guess it was important…to him.
Me: I hate cell phones.
Curse you Alexander Graham Bell!!
