Brain (Cell) Damage

She: I'll just call your cell phone when we're getting close to your town.

Me: Why don't you call the house? We don't always have the cell on. We only turn it on when we leave the house.

She: Oh, that won't work then. We'll be on the road.

Me: *blink*

She: And I'll only have my cell.

Me: *blink* *blink* Can't. you. call. our. home. phone. from. your. cell. phone?

She: Oh. Yeah. I think so...

(Damn those lead crib railings!)

Wow. Words fail me. I think my head would pop after hearing someone say that.

Reminds me of a joke...
A man goes into a pizza parlor & asks for a medium pie.
The clerk asks him if he wants that in 6 slices or 8.
6, replied the man. I could never eat 8!

At the risk of looking even more ditzy than I usually do - I've been the "she" in this conversation many times.

But in my defence it's because I'll only have one phone number programed in the phone.

But seeing it written out like this? Yeah, I'm gonna need to fix that.........

Oh that's so funny!

Roses said...

Tammi: You know, that's probably exactly what "she" meant... she was probably thinking I should program Roses' home phone number on my cell, only it came out sounding so wrong.

Jessie: My thoughts exactly.

Hapkido: Ugh! Brains everywhere! Now I have to clean up.

jaj: Good to see you again! Kids must be keeping you very busy! Thanks for stopping by!

For a minute, I really did think She was Cher from Clueless. Sweet, but not the brightest bulb.

Mrs. Who said...

Nahh, that could have been my mom. But we don't let her have a cell phone...too dangerous.

Roses said...

Mrs. Who: My mother-in-law just could not wrap her head around the idea that she could call any phone number from her cell phone. Could not, could not.

vw bug: Then my job here is done. :)

I don't even own a cell phone. Someone would seriously need to show me how to use it. Cell phones can cook your dinner for you nowadays can't they?

Jessie said...

Chlorinejenny: Not nuke the food, but it can provide you take out numbers that deliver. Bless the internet ready phones. *grins*
