It’s this shit on the CTA here in Chicago with “well she said this, and fuck him, he was sleeping over there, and I saw what that bitch said on Facebook, I’ll beat her ass, fuck that I don’t want to go over there I have to get drunk, where dat taco stand at over there, etc”. You just hear this nonsense and imagine these incredible fucking technological devices being used for absolute nothing. They say you could fit the computer memory that was on board the early Gemini and Saturn ships inside a thumb drive now, but fuck if we can’t figure out how to make an iPhone useful in 2018.
A call to work to say you’re running late or to check on your kid with the babysitter is fine, and can easily be handled in about 90 seconds. My generous time limit allows double that before the executions begin.
