It was a sales call anyway

So there I was yesterday, in the shower (naked!), and the phone rang. Now I hate jumping out of the shower to answer the phone in general because it’s just awkward wrapping myself in a towel and waddling across the room, and because I’m always afraid my wet head is going to short the phone out or electrocute me or something. Yesterday however, I was saved this misery because I knew that both my mom and my sister were home. I stuck my head out of the shower and heard the following:



Mom: Are you gonna get that?

Katie: Why don’t you?


Mom: KATHERINE MICHELLE! Get the phone, I’m cooking dinner!


Katie: But there’s a phone right next to you, why don’t YOU answer it?!

Mom: You have the cordless phone, just ans—

--Ring, answering machine picks up, saying “Hi, you’ve reached the McCloskey’s at…”--

Katie: Well there’s no sense arguing about it now.

I laughed a lot and then rinsed out my hair. :-)


  • It's impossible for you to be electrocuted by a telephone because it is low voltage, versus sitting your finger in a light socket. I recommend you don't try that. What I do recommend is a phone in the bathroom. Then you never have to leave.

  • I hate the phone.

    I hate voicemail.

    And I hate it when a stinky person sits next to me in the library and I have to move - as in yesterday.

  • That anonymous person posting that cash thing is almost as annoying as voicemail. Almost.
