Telephones Suck
Posted by tim in Pissed on July 1, 2007

For the last 2 weeks, I've had to be awake fairly early in the morning, even on the weekends. I decided this past Friday that since I wasn't going to be able to afford going out of town for the weekend, I'd sleep in as late in the day as I could on both Saturday and Sunday.

Yesterday, I was laying in bed, sound asleep, when my Skype number started ringing. I buried my head in my pillow and tried to ignore it. After it stopped, my cell phone started ringing. I tried to deny that my cell phone had rang, and tried to go back to sleep. I failed, so I got up and checked both for voice mail messages. Sure enough, my business partner/friend/former roommate left me a voicemail to let me know that his wife had gone into labor. I was happy for them, and I was glad he called about it because I asked him to. But why couldn't she have gone into labor at like 4:30 in the afternoon? Needless to say, he called me again around 9:30 last night to tell me that he was a proud father of a little girl, and that everyone was doing just fine.

This morning, right around the same time, my cell phone rang. I was sleeping kinda light, so I heard the ringer loud and clear. When I got out of bed to see who it was, it was Mom. She hadn't left a voice mail, which kinda frustrated me, but when I called back she answered right away. She was calling to let me know that they were going to come down this way for the day, but that it wouldn't be for another couple of hours. GRR! So why didn't she call another couple of hours later so I could get some sleep?!

Don't get me wrong, I love my parents and my friends, and I'm glad that they are keeping in touch with me. I just want to get some sleep one of these days!
