I'm sure you've all been there: you're waiting for a phone call, trying to keep yourself busy as the minutes, then hours, slowly tick by. "Why aren't they calling? Did they get in an accident? Are they just avoiding me? What's going on?"
You pace around the house looking for something, anything, to occupy your time. You finally settle in with a book and are just getting lost in the story when it hits you: the phone must not be working! You race to the phone to check for a dial tone and...
It works, right?
Not today, my friend. I can't tell you how many times I've checked for a dial tone and been disappointed to hear that familiar buzz. But now, when I'm waiting for a call from someone I haven't seen in fifteen years, my phone doesn't work.
I'm hoping it's just the cable since my internet connection is fine, but it doesn't help me right now. We use Skype to call family back home and since Ibis brings his computer to work I rang him till he messaged me back. Now he's trying to get a message to my friends so they at least know I'm not trying to avoid them.
As for why the phone doesn't work, I'll keep you posted.
