When Text Messages Are Not Commutative
Since Monday my husband has been asking me to meet him for lunch near his work place as I'm off for spring break. I finally say yes, but it has to be after my teeth cleaning appointment at noon.
I leave the dentist's office with shiny teeth and send him this text in the blue bubble:
See his response there?
Mind you I'm already driving now, so I can't text back. And I don't know where I'm driving to. I'm furious.
He's been asking me every day this week to meet for lunch. He knows I've said yes. He knows it has to be after my dental appointment. And now I just need him to give me a LOCATION, a WHERE.
Lunch? is not a where.
I call him. He doesn't pick up. I grow indignant and leave him an exasperated voicemail:
You replied to my question of WHERE with a lunch-question-mark text?! Did you forget that we're having lunch today?! That I told you I'd meet you after my cleaning?! Lunch-question-mark is not an address! Call me back within a minute or I'm heading home!(You really don't need to tell me how I sound. Trust me, I do know.)
We meet at Garman's Pub.
He shows me our text exchange on his phone:
I don't remember if I said sorry. I meant to though. We almost filed for divorce over this. Anyone at iPhone taking notes on this?
Size used to matter. Now, order matters.
