old-lady-on-phoneI’m too old for this.

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 Smartphone?
The one that nobody knows about except for a very few?
Me, dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century?

imagesThat one.

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.

Me: “Hello?”

Me: “Hello?”
(about to hang up)
Me: “Hellloooo?”
(she picks up)

She: “Listen.” (aggressive much?)
Me: “Yes?”
She: “I’m calling about your student loan, OK?”

At this point I envision a very cranky, very obnoxious woman.

And I can’t stop laughing.$(KGrHqV,!isE5dm!6Dv4BOZ-YR!+7g~~60_35

Me: “First of all, I’m 62 years old.”
She: (silence)
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.
