and not the four thirty, but I had a long meeting”.
“No, honey, not with that blonde from the accounts office. It was with the boss”.
“No sweetheart, you’re the only one in my life”.
“Yes, I’m sure, cross my heart”
At first, tried asking him politely to lower his voice, but he got really cross with me and said—rather rudely, I might add—”You are free to find another seat.”
Fifteen minutes pass and the guy is still talking loudly. It’s at this point that I got fed up of his antics and leaned into the phone to say,
“Eric, hang up the phone and come back to bed.”
Redfaced and absolutely shocked, he shut off the phone and didn’t say a single word after I did that.
I doubt he uses his phone in public any longer.
