The fellow at the AT&T store was very flippant about the whole thing.
“What am I supposed to do until the new phone arrives?” I asked.
“Well, you just do without,” he said casually, as if he wouldn’t be howling at the moon within the first half hour if somebody told him he’s got to do without his phone.
“Oh, sure,” I said conversationally, trying to look like a person who can easily do without her phone for hours.
It’s all funny, of course, until I remember that I’ve got 5 meetings tomorrow. What am I supposed to do during those? Listen to what people say and gradually lose all faith in humanity?
