My cell phone just rang.
I don't recognize the number displayed, but decide to answer anyway-
"This is Greybeard".
Female voice- "Hello?"
I don't respond. (I've been here before... all too often lately.)
"Oh! (Giggles.) I'm sorry! I was having trouble with my headset."
At this point I begin to attempt conversation, but the person(?) on the other end of the line just continues rapidly with her sales speil. (Spell check says "speil" is misspelled.)
I hang up, irritated, and once again wish I could just flush the cell phone down the commode.
Too often these days I envy Thoreau.
