People That Should Never Be Allowed To Breed

Excerpt from an actual conversation:

She: Every time I try to text someone, I get a voicemail.

Me: That is AMAZING!

She: But I can never get the voicemail!

Me: Well, maybe you are doing something wrong.

She: I am doing it just like they showed me.

Me: Who showed you how to text message?

She: Connie at work.

Me: Is this the same Connie that cannot figure out how to microwave macaroni?

She: Yes.

Me: Well, there you go.

This conversation occurred between my mother and me. My mother cannot understand that a cordless landline telephone has a maximum range, yet still thinks that she can only use the cellphone that I gave her in the immediate area surrounding the Alltel store. She has asked, "Do you think that I am not getting calls because I am too far from the store?"

Needless to say, she had her phone set up to send a message to her phone every time that she sent a text message. And since she had her own cellphone number stored in her phone as "Voicemail," the return text appeared as a message from "Voicemail." I still have yet to figure out why that return message would even be an option. Any ideas?

And NO, my mother should not have ever been allowed to reproduce.

Please take the time to comment.
