A Conversation with Mum Where I Try to Points Score and Crash n Burn
Me: My email is doubling up.
Mum: What does that mean?
Me: The same emails are being received over and over again.
Mum: Is that a nuisance?
Me: Yes, it is.
Mum: That’s not good.
Mum: What are you telling me for?
Me: I thought since you tell me all your tech woes I could tell you mine.
Mum: I’m doing something.
Me: So, you answered the phone.
Mum: But I didn’t know you were going to talk about things I’m not interested in.
Me: Oh, really. I assume I talk about things you’re not interested in a lot then.
Mum: You do.
Mum: There’s something wrong with you.
Me: Yes, my email is screwed up.
Mum: What would you think I can do about your silly email?
Me: What would you think I can do about your website that keeps changing content?
Me: It’s not the same thing.
Mum: You rang me yesterday and wanted to talk about your football app and today you wanted to buy pants online.
Me: What’s your point?
Me: I’m usually doing something too, like working.
Mum: But I’m your mother.
Mum: So what did you ring me for?
Me: Complain about my email.
Mum: That was a dumb idea.
Mum: I’m busy now, but I’m going to ring you tomorrow about my scanner.
Me: What about your damn scanner. We just went through that.
Mum: Nothing, just trying to get a rise out of you.
Me: I’m going now.
Mum: Only smart thing you’ve said all call.
