I was hitting doubles with my cell phone jammer on the train in. With one flick of a switch I was zapping the cell phone calls of both the yappy 19ish year old girl with an urban attitude sitting directly behind me AND the sideways baseball cap-wearing thug sitting in the row behind her. They were both cursing up a blue streak and getting good and angry. I, on the other hand, was feeling much better about the train ride.
They suddenly realized they were each having the same problem. They compared devices and cursed their carriers (his: Verizon, hers: AT&T) for having such wretched service so close to the city. They were drawn together by a common enemy (technology) and by the time we pulled into Newark, they had exchanged phone numbers. For all I know, they’re in the process of becoming under-aged parents as I type this! How about that! They put their phones down and made human contact. I’m a regular cupid.
Look at that! There’s a goddamn cell tower RIGHT THERE! Why can’t I get a decent signal?!
Good work. Who;d have thought two equally irritating people would meet thanks to being irritated? Now, could you get on over to London and work your cupid shiz over here?
magic! when you least expect it most, love can sneak up and zap you… perhaps you need a ‘sperm destruction’ level setting on it to prevent breeding?
It’s a good feeling to be proved righteous, isn’t it?
Jo: If only I had such powers. Just imagine the possibilities! I could make a fortune.daisy: ooh, that’s a great idea. I need one device to freeze vocal cords and another to nullify breeding. annie: Righteous? Me? I just want a quiet train ride. Is that asking a lot?
I’m gonna look for you the next time I’m on a train in or around the city and suddenly loose my signal. That probably will never happen because I hate talking on the phone, especially in public but I’m still gonna blame you whenever it does happen.
Hey *psst* UB! *whispers*You’re AWESOME!*giggle*I’m laughing at the visual in my head as I type.
Man imagine if 25 yrs from now they’re still together and telling their kids about how they first met.
Hello! I am chuckling out loud at this one!
