One I think we can all relate to one way or another
After a tiring day, Zoe settled down in a seat on her train and closed her eyes. As the train rolled out of the station, the guy sitting next to her pulled out his mobile phone and started talking in a loud voice.
“Hi sweetheart. It’s Gavin. I’m on the train.
“Yes, I know it’s the 6:30 and not the 4:30, but I had a long meeting.
“No, honey, not with that blonde from the accounts office. It was with the boss.
“No sweetheart, you’re the only one in my life.
“Yes, I promise, cross my heart.”
Fifteen minutes later, he was still talking loudly. When Zoe, exasperated, had had enough, she leaned over and said into the phone, “Gavin, hang up the phone and come back to bed.”
Red-faced and absolutely shocked, he shut off his phone and didn’t say a single word for the rest of the train ride.
Gavin doesn’t use his mobile phone in public any longer. And Zoe finally got some well-deserved shut-eye.
