Cell phone shorties
Here are a couple cell phone observations I made over the last couple of weeks:
- A young woman calls her mom to talk about her day. And a big day it was. She was telling mom about how her job interview earlier that day went. "They asked one strange question: What was I most afraid of. I said, clowns. If I don't get the job it's because the other people interviewing are theater people, and it's a stage manager job." Well, at lest she didn't conduct the job interview on her cell phone.
- The quiet celler: He cups both hands over the phone so no one can hear him. But who knows? He could be making an obscene call.
- And then there's the cell phone conversation Cheryl heard, that she wished she could have heard just a little bit better: "Oh you don't know...she's the love child of Lucille Ball and [CTA announcer tells us to keep our belongings off the seat next to us] ... foster home ... adoption ... no, the child is not really a relative ... listen, I guess I should tell you the story from the beginning..." Then the bus hits the Drive and the motor drowns her out. Damn!
