Ramblings of a Mad Piggie

To cell or not to cell...that is the question.

It has come to my conclusion that I spend a whole lot of time on the cell phone, but this was ridiculous. Here was the scenario.

The girl who asked the middle sis (who, yes is down for another visit) to take her to school in the morning (and yes, I tried pinching her leg, but was to far away to not make it look obvious). I knew this was going to be a cluster fuck. so this is what happened , while I'm driving to work in traffic. I made the mistake of letting the phone ring 1/2 a ring at mom's house that morning:

sister: (on cell phone) (ring ring)...j?, does the girl need a ride?
me: um, no she got a ride but thanks very much for offering
sister: if she needs anything...blah blah blah...

incoming call from mom so I hang up with sis

mom: (on cell phone) j? did you just call the house?
me:um yeah, I called to tell sis nevermind about the ride.

incoming call from middle sis again

sister: j?, the boy left the cell phone at mom's
me: oh, I'll call him and let him know...thnx

I then call the boy, who is trying to talk to middle sis and grandma at the same time about his phone.

The sad thing is that middle sis and Gma were calling from inside the very same house.


I made the conscious effort to turn off the phone last weekend so that I could rest in peace that morning. What I didn't do is turn it back on later in the day. My best friend R's mom got very sick and had to be rushed to the hospital. I felt so bad, I wasn't there when she needed me at a very low point in her life.

Your damned if you do and damned if you don't. That sucks.
