Bad Connection

Stephen and I recently took a trip with a dear friend. At the end of a long day of socializing, we all retired to our respective hotel rooms. Parting company for the evening, Linda asked if we would give her a quick wake-up call the next morning. Our response – of course.

Before going to bed, I tried connecting to the hotel’s wi-fi. After several unsuccessful attempts, Stephen called the front desk for the correct password. When he picked up the hotel phone it was dead so he used his cell instead.

Finally getting online, it hit me. Our room phone was dead – we wouldn’t be able to give Linda her wake-up call. Since I was already in my night shirt, I asked Stephen to go next door to tell Linda we couldn’t call her in the morning. Because it was late and we didn’t know if she would be in bed, Stephen didn’t want to knock on her door. Instead, he called her room on his cell phone. CALLED…HER…ROOM to tell her we couldn’t call her to provide a wake-up call. When I realized we were calling her to tell her we couldn’t call her, I told Stephen to hang up – quick. We confessed the next morning and all got a good laugh.

Clearly there was a bad connection, only this one happened to be in my brain.

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF,

Pam

  2. This sounds like something I would do…and never admit. What a fine, brave woman you are Pam. Just putting your intellectual challenges right out there for the world to see…

    • I have so many intellectual challenges that it’s too hard to hide them all. My strategy is to make fun of myself before everyone else!

I love it when you comment - it makes my day!
