Callers in the night...


The other day, I was giving a ukulele lesson to a couple of friends of the female persuasion, when the question of an appropriate time to return a call came up. One of these lovely ladies, received a few calls during the day from a guy that she was kind of "talking to" as the saying goes. Because of circumstances beyond her control, she was unable to return the calls to said guy immediately. It was getting pretty late in the evening when she finally had the opportunity to call the dude back. She looked up at the clock on the wall with a sort of pained look and asked the question, which all considerate young ladies would, "Do you think it's too late to call him back?"

Looking back on that day, I realize I don't know the definite answer to that question, but I am going to give you my opinion, because you can't stop me... If I had called a girl during the day more than once, and she didn't call back until 11:30 PM, I would totally pick up the phone and be grateful that she even thought to talk to me. I'm no player of women, or anything like that. I don't have hot girls kicking down my door, but I'd be happy if she called at all. I know what some of you "Ladies Men" are thinking, why take the time to answer, she'll call back because I am all that, the shiznit and so forth, but that is a good way to catch a swift kick in the bean bags (plz refer to my last blog and believe me, I promise to point and laugh ). It seems to me that any woman who wants to talk to a man is for any reason is worth the attention. There is a flip side to the argument though. I had this crazy girl who would call me at all hours. It was cool at first because I didn't know she was off her rocker, but 25+ calls a day started to freak me out a bit, so being the cowardly dude I was, I tried to avoid her calls... she had her mom give my brother a stern talking to at church about me.

So you ladies out there, if you wanna call a guy late at night, I say go for it. A guy who really wants to hear from you will pick up, unless he's a really heavy sleeper. If he doesn't pick up, don't freak out and have your mom yell at his brother at church. It won't be good for anyone involved. For you guys out there, if you are a heavy sleeper, and you see on your "missed calls" menu that a girl has called you late at night, be sure to wear a cup...

Thanks for the Vent Session
