On the phone

The other day I needed to call home, but the only pay phone I could find was in use. So I stood to the side to politely wait until it was free, thinking it would only be a couple of minutes. Five minutes went by, and still the man was on the phone. He was just standing there,not saying a word. Two minutes later, he was still not talking.

Finally, I tapped him on the shoulder and asked if I could use the phone. I really wouldn’t be long, but needed to make an important call.

“Hold your horses,” he responded, covering the receiver. “I’m talking to my wife.”
