Pregnant Lassie: I've got this pain at the bottom of my stomach. Should I go to the hospital?
Sympathetic Person: Why don't you rest for a while? It might go away.

Ten minutes later.

Pregnant Lassie: That pain is still there.
Sympathetic Person: Why don't you rest for a while? It might go away.
Pregnant Lassie. But you see, the thing is, I went out to use the phone box and it wouldn't work so I kicked it. I got the pain then. Do you think I should go to the hospital?
Sympathetic Person: Try resting. It will probably go away.

Ten minutes later.

Pregnant Lassie: The pain went away.
Sympathetic Person: That's good. [Thinks - No it hasn't. It's still standing here in front of me.]

LOL that was funny. The Phone booth is quickly dieing in America. I can not remember the last time I saw a phone booth. Even the phones on a simple pole are going away at a amazing pace.

They are becoming a rarity here too. Everybody's got mobiles (cell phones 2 U) and it is such a pain. I rarely use one myself as I prefer to be uncontactable most of the time.

I didn't know you were pregnant, Nelly. Congratulations, and stop kicking phone boxes.

Sorry, did I misunderstand the post? Oh, you're the Sympathetic Person! It all makes more sense now.

Well, I could have been the Sympathetic Person but the sorry tale was told to me by A.N. Other.
