News Flash: Men Have Insufficient Communication Skills

It’s 6:58a.m. and I’m awake even though my alarm won’t go off until 7:16a.m. (I always set my alarms with obscure times, it’s one of my many OCD habits).

Why am I awake?

Because S. decided it was time to call me back. At 6:11 a.m. Normally, I wouldn’t have answered but considering he is on a cross-country adventure with little cash, I thought it might be an emergency.

I was wrong.

He met some drunk Irish guys and wanted me to talk to them. I talked to them for 10 minutes, and hung up. I tried to go back to sleep and was obviously not successful. So, being groggy from the absurd wake up call and bitter that he hadn’t called me back concerning my voice mail, I called him. And I yelled, well, whisper yelled. He got the point.

After my tirade, he said, “It’s good to hear your voice. I miss you. I’ve thought about you a lot on this trip.”

Really?

At 6 in the morning?

Talk to me when I’ve gotten my beauty sleep, bud.

Click.

But I didn’t hang up, because I think I’m still holding on…

    That’s why he calls…. to keep you hanging on. He’s perfectly happy with those communication skills. They make you do exactly what he wants you to do.

    AKA, why I hate men. But only a little.

  2. I’ve gotten drunk phone calls from people that I haven’t talked to in forever. I get pretty excited until I hear why they’re calling. Rough night.
