Hey Dave, turn off that stupid phone and come back to bed …

Serenade 2 seniors

I wonder whether any of you have ever felt like strangling one of of those loud-mouthed cell phone users who sit In a restaurant, on a bus or on a train, and forcibly share their public calls with you?

After a tiring day at work, a commuting grandmother settled down in her seat and closed her eyes as her train departed toward the nearest station to her house.

As the train rolled out of the station, the young guy sitting next to her pulled out his cell phone and began talking in a loud voice.
“Hi sweetheart. It’s Dave. Yes, I’m on the train and I know it’s six thirty, not four thirty, but I had a long meeting. No honey, not with the blond secretary from the accounts office, but with my boss. No darling. You are the only one in my life, promise.”

Fifteen minutes later, he was still speaking loudly. The tired grandmother who was sitting next to him was obviously angered by his continuous diatribe as well as his lack of consideration for the other cummuters, so she yelled:
“Hey Dave. Turn off that stupid phone and come back to bed!”

She received a stand-upmo ation from the other commuters.”
