SoCS – Nov. 14th 2020

Today’s prompt word: ring

Cell phone conversation – fictitious name . . .

RingRingRing

Me: ‘Hello’
Crista: ‘Hi, how are you?’

Me: ‘With whom am I speaking?
Crista: ‘It’s your friend, Crista.’

Passing thought = OH!

Me: ‘Sorry I didn’t recognize your voice.’ -‘I’m doing okay.’ – ‘And how are you?’

Crista: ‘My days are so busy.’ – ‘I keep meaning to ring your number then it’s too

late to call.’

Passing thought = REALLY!

A short conversation – my new practice for long overdue callers – 10 minutes max.

RingRingRing

Me: ‘Sorry to cut our catching up short – there’s an incoming call on my

other cell phone.’

Crista: ‘Okay, let’s stay in contact.’

Passing thought: I WOULDN’T COUNT ON IT.

The above is how I feel towards the few who were part of my face-to-face life for

25 to 35 years who fail to call then feeling guilty contact me with what I consider

a fake explanation.

You promised you’d be there for me. Remember?? Then you disappeared

from my life.

If I call you I can count on leaving a voice message and if lucky a return call in 3 to 4

days.

There are many sayings to read with regard on how you allow others to treat you.

Interesting though people dislike when you give them a taste of their own

behavior.

No, I haven’t heard from Crista in over two years and I refuse to call her since it was

always I who took the initiative.

I doubt I’m mistaken about the definition of friendship being a two-way street.

I’m certain though there’ll be a Christmas card in my mailbox again this year.

Sorry, the intended recipient will place it unopened in the trash same as year 2019.

It was nice knowing you – how quickly people forget promises to another who fell

on hard times.
