This afternoon I went on an errand for my friend. On the way into town my 'phone rang. I nearly wrecked the car trying to find the 'phone in my bag so that I could yell at the caller "I'm driving, I'll call you back". Couldn't find 'phone, pulled over. It stopped ringing. "1 lost call - view". I viewed. My friend. Maybe I don't need to go on the errand after all. I call back. Busy. I call back. Busy. I call...well you get the drift.
I sit in the layby for a while hoping she would call me back. She doesn't. I drive off. Peep, peep. A message. I pull over. 1 voicemail. I access voicemail. Voice tells me that I'm not set up for voice mail. What sort of f.....g service lets someone leave a message on a service that isn't set up? Grrrr! I try ringing friend again. Busy. I drive off. Phone rings. I pull over. 'Phone stops ringing. Friend. I call friend, she answers and apologises for ringing me in the first place, she meant to ring someone else. Oh my, how we laughed.
