Just listened to a message on my answering machine. An female acquaintance of ours, asking for a favor.
I mull it over.
Hmmm. We could probably do that for them.
So I call back.
The husband answers.
"Oh wait. I've got another call, can you hold on a minute?"
And am favored by their hold music for about fifteen seconds before he comes back on.
"Yeah, I've got somebody more important on the other line." Click.
Direct quote, I kid you not. He actually said that and hung up.
