Opinion
Dead Phone..!
By Robert Clements
There's not a person who isn't whispering into his or her cell phone all the time. I see it all over, and this morning I mischievously wondered what would happen if suddenly all mobile phones went dead:

A husband and wife sit down to lunch. He, glued to his expensive phone looks at his wife in shock as she also holding hers looks back in horror.

"Hello! Hello!" he shouts.

"Hello! Hello!" she also shouts into her cell.

"Dead!" he shouts at her.

"Dead!" she shouts back.

They look at each other then stare at the food on the table. They eat in silence for a while then he looks up, "who are you?" he asks.

"Jane!"

"My wife!"

"You mean, you are…"

"David!"

"Oh my God! My husband! How are you David? We haven't spoken to each other in…."

"Three years since I picked up by Nokia, and your brother gifted you an iPhone"

"Where do you live nowadays?"

"Here. And you?"

"Here too! How are the kids?"

"I thought you're looking after them."

"Me? How can I? I'm busy on business calls when I come back from work."

"And I, with my friends! Who are those two at our table?"

"Excuse me!" asks David.

"Yes dad?"

"Dad?" "And you?"

"I'm your daughter mother!"

"Our son and daughter! Look how they've grown," says Jane to her husband. "How come you both are here?"

"Phone's dead so…."

"We left our rooms…"

"You two on the phone all the time?"

"Just as you two are on the phone all the time!"

"How about your exams? Asks David to his son.

"I placed my report card before you dad two years ago, but you were busy…"

"On the phone.." says his daughter.

"What a lovely reunion!" exclaims Jane looking fondly at her two children, then stretching out and hugging her husband.

"I feel so happy too!" says David beaming at his family.

"Listen!" shout the son and daughter together as they run to their rooms. "The phones are working again!" they both exclaim from inside.

"Whoopee!" shouts David as he picks up his phone and dials.

"Hello Betty!" says Jane as she lifts her handset and settles down to a long conversation "wasn't it awful when our phones went dead..!"
