Who needs cell phones?

I just talked to someone that had left me a message earlier in the day.

Message was like this: "Hi, uh yeah, this is Mr. SoandSo and I want to talk to you bout booking dates. Call me back. Thank you ma'am." Click.

When he called back I told him I would have called him back but he didn't leave his number.

His explanation was something like this. "Oh yeah, that's a, 'cause, I don't have no phone. I don't reckon the good Lord wants me to have a phone." Followed by a LONG story about him having a cell phone and it smashing in a hotel room on accident and what a hassle phones are.

PS Would like you to guess what kind of event this gentleman wanted to book? HINT: PBR

Are you SURE you want to quit this job?! I think you might want to at least wait until the Professional Bull Riders event occurs!

Iris, you better have as good of stories at your new job as you had at the current gig. Some crazy stuff happened there and I laughed every single day because of you!!

PS - Now you can get rid of your GoToMyPC password that you hate so much!! Hee hee.

Moey, I would have to have googled PBR to know that it was more than just a delicious beer that that the working class drinks, so it wasn't me, but I have a friend who doesn't have a cell phone, so he leaves me messages with other peoples cell numbers on them with the sentence "I will only be available at this number for 45 minutes." It is all very weird, but I guess I didn't see how weird until I saw it in writing just now.

Some of those professional bull riders are nice to look at.

I think Jewel's husband is the president of that group. I hope you weren't talking to him!

I am with a. I have to admit or confess I am intrigued by PBRs. There is something to be said about men in tight blue jeans getting their nuts knocked off by a 2300 lb Brahma Bull! Ride Em' Cowboy!!
