YellerPosted: July 15, 2016
“Who was that yeller?” Mom asked from the office doorway.
“That was Lynn, the guy we write bids for,” I replied. “We just got off a conference call.”
“Oh? Did you get new a job?”
“No, just a new project. It came in a couple of weeks ago.”
“So you’re not retired anymore? You’re free-lancing?”
“Yes, no, sort of. We’re still retired but we do occasional work for Lynn when he needs us.”
“Then why was he yelling at you. Did you do something wrong?” she continued, looking a little concerned.
“No, we didn’t do anything wrong. He just has to talk loud on the conference call so everyone will hear him.”
“Well then I guess everyone heard him alright. I’m almost deaf and I could hear him.” She turned to go, then paused. “Did he say anything important?” she asked
“I suppose to some people. It was mainly about other stuff that didn’t matter me or Bill.”
“Then maybe he should go into politics.”
“Why do you say that.”
“Because politicians talk really loud and don’t say anything that really matters either,” she offered as she motored away.
