I told you that I was calling around looking for apartments yesterday, right? Well, I left a message on this one place's answering machine, and just now I got a call from a little old lady about the message. And, just...
She couldn't hear a word I said; I had to talk really loudly into my cell phone. And it took me several minutes to convince her that I was the person who'd left the message. And once she found out I wasn't looking to rent right away, she ended the conversation politely while I was practically in the middle of a sentence.
Whew! That certainly woke me up. I'm sure she's a very nice person, when she can hear you talking.
