Mom went to bed a couple of hours ago and had been resting without any medicinal help.  As the rest of us sat in the dark on our various electronics, Mom burst into the room (scaring a scream out of me) and yells, "Where is it?  I can't find the phone!".  She's feeling around in the dark looking for it.  I get up and quietly coax her into the bathroom and give her a supplement to help her sleep.  She swallowed the pills with a drink of water.  She then put the cup to her chin and said, "Hello? Ma'am?  Operator, are you there?"  She looked at me and said, "She must have hung up." 

And I didn't even hear it ring!


  1. What would you have done if someone answered ?

    I always ask myself that question. Thankfully an audible reply has never been heard by me @ least.
    Now I'm trying to remember the last time I actually spoke with an operator, hmm ...

  2. I was wondering the other day if they even still have them. I guess they must.
