Too old and too irreverent.
But I can’t stop laughing.
So lucky you, I’m writing here about it.
My phone just rang.
You know, the cell phone that I just got?
The one that nobody knows about except for a very few?
Me, dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century?
It rang. I answered.
The call was from California.
From a young woman with a vaguely Asian accent and a very tired voice, who clearly had been having a very long day.
She: “Listen.” (aggressive much?)
She: “I’m calling about your student loan, OK?”
At this point I envision a very cranky, very obnoxious woman.
Me: “First of all, I’m 62 years old.”
Me: “Second of all, I’ve never had a student loan.”
She hung up on me.
Guess she’ll have to find someone else to intimidate. I’m way past that.
Sometimes it’s fun being older and irreverent.
