20-some­thing chick to friend on cell: I like how you’re lis­ten­ing to the mes­sage I left you while I’m stand­ing right here.
Friend: I just want to make sure I get the mes­sage, I don’t want to be like one of those peo­ple who calls you back with­out lis­ten­ing to the mes­sage.
20-some­thing chick: I hate those peo­ple! It’s like, what if the mes­sage was re­al­ly im­por­tant? Like, “Help me, I’m dy­ing! Don’t call me back–it sets off the bomb!”
