A true call.
Emmeline: Hello. (silence)
Me: Um…..what is the reason for this call?
Me: What is the reason for your call?
Emmeline: Are you drunk or something?
Me:….uuuuuuuuuuuuh….*looking both ways, confused*…….wouldn’t that be nice?
Emmeline: Hello? Well, anyway- could you send the list of people who tell you they can come to the party to me, so I can get a count.
Emmeline: OK. (silence)
And this is why I stick to texting.
