Can You Hear Me Now?
A year ago I did just that. Verizon screwed me big time in breaking their contract. And I mean it cost big time dollars to get out of it. Bastards - after all those years of being a faithful customer I got that? But hell, it was well worth the expense. There's no missing the:
"Can you hear me now?" b.s.
Checks for "bars" before making a call.
Dropped calls or receiving dropped calls (don't you hate it when idiots place a call when there's no cell reception so consequently the call is dropped but they keep trying to connect anyway. . . only to have each call dropped, so....the phone rings and stops....rings and stops - Drives me nuts!!).
Being interrupted or breaking the silence in whatever you're doing.
Now the rocket scientists are talking about the radiation emitted by a cell phone and that it is harmful. After all these years they're just finding this out?
I figure if someone wants to talk they can call the house and leave a message. And if I answer the phone there's the usual question from whoever is on the other end:
Them: "What cha doing?"
Me: "Having sex. Can you hear me now?"
