Playing Telephone (Pt II)


Welcome back!


Aren’t guessing games the BEST?

this shit ends now


I know sometimes it’s frustrating, getting into the rhythm of a story only to hit the To Be Continued wall, but I’ve been feeling the lack of interaction lately, so I enjoyed the comment action. 


And, if Husband is to be believed, this blog is all about me.


But the time has come to appease your curiosity and answer the days’ old question:


What the fuck was his excuse for his phone?


Answer, and the full conversation, after the jump.


splashscreen reads: "4 to 6 Days Later.... "


ME:  … And it was just a really bad day for your phone to be on the fritz!
HIM:  It wasn’t on the fritz.
ME:  ?
HIM:  I just wasn’t getting messages.
ME:  … That’s…
HIM:  And it randomly shut off for a while, and then I was getting that “emergency calls only” error and had to restart it.
ME:  Th—
HIM:  And then when your texts did come in, they came in the wrong order.
ME:  …
HIM:  And a few hours late.
ME:  …
HIM:  …
HIM:  Oh.
ME:  (stares)
HIM:  Well then, yeah.  Sorry.

I mean…


Sarah Jessica Parker blinks in open-mouthed shock



Sometimes—I’m not saying every conversation, or even often, but sometimes—I look at him and honestly wonder if he’s a representative of another species, sent here to test human reactions to fuckery and random sequences of words.

    Based on that, I stand by my “Sometimes electronics are stupid. It’s just one of those things” line of reasoning. When the answer is “turn it off and then turn it on again”, that’s the only excuse that can be used.

    The fact that it means I don’t have to explain to managers and whatnot why the software isn’t doing exactly what they want it to do without wasting half a day is purely coincidental.

    • I’m down with that, but he really hates when i say thinks like, “that printer doesn’t like to do that,” or explain explain a software failure as, “my computer went stupid and needed a nap.”

      Engineer Man insists there’s a reason for whatever the thing is doing and we shouldn’t anthropomorphize.

  2. You know why it’s x for women and y for men right? X marks the spot where we buried our brains – dear God Y did we marry them???!

  3. and… those conversations remain the same even after almost 44 years of marriage…. but, by then you are retired and they not only are via phone or texts, but they can be just as frustrating or even more when he is sitting right next to you looking like I am talking in a foreign language…. oooh, better stop my rant! Great post, great blog, will need to follow you for more fun!

    I still say it could have been ghosts. Maybe the ghosts in your house were screwing around with your cell signal and used it to screw up his phone. That way, you’re not anthropomorphizing anything – ghosts are anthropo by default.

    Yep I get this, instead of saying ‘yes you are right, that is what it was’ end of conversation. They just get pedantic and draf it on as if they are telling you somethig different from what you said ten minutes ago! Arsehole! When we are right … shut the fuck up.
