I like to walk around shopping malls with phone at my ear talking as loud as possible so that people understand what an important person I am. I just wish there was someone on the other end of the line.
OK, here's the plan.
I'll ring you, Geezer, then we can both look important & have someone on the other end of the line. Just one snag, that will cost.
How about....... ........ No, that's no good.
GOT IT!!! I wont ring you & you don't ring me either, we just hold our phone's to our ear at the same time and talk, that way we look and sound important, DO have someone on the other end of the line, but, and here's the smart bit, it wont cost a penny!!!
Some times my brilliance astounds even myself.
When I was working in Yellowstone my job was fixing problems with guest rooms at night. I had a radio so the three hotels I covered (and others) could reach me. Once, just as I walked up to the Old Faithful Inn front desk to check if they had anything for me the woman walked up to her radio, keyed it then said, over the radio "Inn front desk to maintenance"
I responded in the normal way but without my radio "Maintenance go ahead"
She didn't realize my voice was coming from behind her, not from the speaker, so she keyed the radio again and asked me to come to the desk. I told her I was there and to turn around and finally realized I was there. It must have been odd for the others hearing one side of the conversation. My boss called me on the radio a few minutes later, wondering why I wasn't responding to the call.
