Empty Chairs for Empty Heads: The Friday Chaironeers

I doubt if you’ve ever had a conversation on your cell phone like this one. Maybe not.

Each week Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic to write a 100 word story about.

This week it’s humor.

Empty Chairs for Empty Heads*

You’re a 1/2 hour late.
Where do you get off saying that? You’re still not here.
Typical of you. Always turning everything around.
Don’t you?
You just did it again. I’m not the one who’s always late.
Late? You’re not even here.
You’re not here either.
I’ll be there before you.
No, you won’t. I’m just around the corner
I’m just coming through the door.
Oh yeah, I’m slipping my butt into the chair.
Too late. I’m already in it.
I’m hanging up.
Wait. How long?
How long what?
Before you’re there.
A minute before you. When are you going to be there?

Hello? HELLO! Damn you…

    • Thanks, Perry.
      Clint called me a little while ago and said he wasn’t too happy with my comment.
      I told him that I could meet him somewhere to discuss it, say, a few minutes after he got there first which I wondered out loud to him what time that might be for him?

      He said, Huh? and hung up on me.

  1. Randy. Hilarious. ๐Ÿ˜€ I remember when if you were on the phone, you hadn’t even left the house as yet and the other person hadn’t either. It would depend on who lived the closest so no contest. I bet Clint has wished many times he’d never said that. Well written yet again. ๐Ÿ™‚ — Susan

    • Thank you. I remember that too.
      And I think that’s what partially prompted me. Talking to someone on the phone and saying I’ll be right there – and a 1/2 later wondering what the heck happened to that person, and not having a way to communicate with them like we do now by cell about where they were and what happened.

  2. Hilarious. What a crazy conversation. I’d like to join a support group for late people. I once worked with a man from New Guinea who told me about ‘New Guinea time’ where 1 o’clock might mean 12, or 1:30, or whenever you got there. They all understand, and just relax. Must be a very laid-back lifestyle but I can’t imagine how anyhting ever happens.

Have some fun...
