The following is a true story that happened today.
Dude: “HE WON’T BE COMING BECAUSE IT’S SNOWIN’ LIKE A B@STARD, HERE.”
Me: *blink blink*
I’m sorry, but you have *got* to have the wrong number.
Dude: *audible gasp*
“Oh my God! I’m SOOOO sorry!”
“I am so, so sorry. Sorry!”
Me: That’s all right. Don’t sweat it. I hope you find the person you’re looking for. Bye.

Do you think we are becoming to fellow humans, as these aliens were to the phone?
*This looks identical to the phone that was in my house when I was a kid.
**Little Known Peady Fact: My iThing rings like an old phone because the ring tone is – wait for it – “Old Phone”.
***Full disclosure: We are watching “Her” and I am having thoughts!
