It wasn't me

Husband was going through the telephone bill. 'Whose mobile is this? o77....'
'I don't know.'
'You must do: you called it.'
'No, I didn't.'
'Yes, you did. About twelve times during July and August.'
'I rarely call mobiles and if i do i use my mobile.'
'Well, it wasn't me, so it must be you.'
'But I'd remember ...'
'Well, it wasn't me.'

I took down my address book and began going through it. Unlike Husband I never remember numbers. I'm not finding it until ... 'It's Elder Son's number!'
'077... - oh yes, that Elder Son's number.'

I waited.
'Sorry, dear,' said a sheepish Husband.

Elder Son and Daughter-in-law don't have a landline so we call them on his mobile. Or rather Husband calls them as he remembers the number.

Usually.

I do love it when I am proved to be right. It doesn't happen often enough.

HA HA Husband I have this frequent discussion after I access call menu online. Once was not been pleasant, but for the most part things are resolved amicably.

We have one cell (mobile) and one land-line

Reminds me of the old joke "When I married Mr Right, I didn't realise his first name was Always".

Not right enough often enough Liz? I am used toi a relationship where the not-wife is always right... That is nearly always true too!

Hi lia and Cherrypie.

The same situation arises all over the world I guess, nitwit.

But i don't think he'll be so quick to try and prove it next time, nick!

Thanks, leslie, rose and suburbia.

Mobile numbers are soooo long, jay!

WE're too placid and easy-going, jams, that's our problem!
