Technology is Our Friend, Phone Clash Edition

I had been on the phone with a patron on a fairly routine sort of reference question when a tinny chime started on her end. “That’s my cell phone,” she said, “hang on a sec.”

The phone clattered to the table. I hung on and on (and on) while she discussed her husband’s health with somebody. (Full disclosure: it looks like he’s going to be OK, or at least that’s what the doctor said. The tests don’t indicate anything bad.) Since I am basically spineless, I listened for way too long before I hung up.
