Don't Call Me I'll Call You
And then once you get on the phone, they have nothing to say and expect you to do all the talking. I think they just call to hear my breathing while they go about their own activity. It's like having a body next to them, without the inconvenience of invading their zone of intimacy. I'm serious, this person calls and then sits there silently and every now will say, "so how's it going". I have already told them when I first answered the phone, "it's going okay, I was ______ until you called". So are they even listening?
Sometimes there is even lulls in the conversation where I say "are you even listening to anything I say"? Definitely a waste of a call. I have no idea why I answer the phone. You would think I would take advantage of the caller i.d. and ignore the call. But like a sucker, I always pick up.
I think picking up has a lot to do with my very own boredom. And it's probably the very reason I will continue to pick up whenever this friend of mine calls.
P.S. It's not you Egg--but it is someone that you know!
