Yesterday, some work was being done in our office building so we were located for the day in a conference room in the student center.
Late in the afternoon, I was working on a brochure design when I got a text message from a friend asking if I had a minute to talk. I texted back that I could talk for a moment and, in my mind at least, went back to work on the brochure.
A few seconds later, one of my coworker friends asked me a question and said “Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t realize you were on the phone.”
I was a little confused because I wasn’t on the phone. Until I realized that I was, in fact, still holding the phone to my ear, apparently waiting for my friend to talk.
All I could do was laugh at myself.
