Be Careful Where You Leave Your Cell Phone


Today’s ESL Podcast 341 is about annoying cell phone users. I, like many people, get annoyed when cell phone users are inconsiderate (impolite; behave selfishly), and today’s podcast reminded me of this joke.

~ Lucy

Several men are in the locker room (changing and showering room) of a gym after exercising. Suddenly a cell phone on one of the benches (low, long seats) rings. A man picks it up and has this conversation:

Man: “Hello?”
Woman: “Honey, It’s me.”
Man: “Hello, darling.”
Woman: “Are you at the gym?”
Man: “Yes.”
Woman: “Great! I’m at the shopping mall. I saw a beautiful mink coat (coat made of animal fur). It is absolutely gorgeous (very beautiful)! Can I buy it?”
Man: “What’s the price?”
Woman: “Only $1,500.”
Man: “Well, okay, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much.”
Woman: “I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership (store where cars are sold) and saw the 2008 models. I saw one I really liked. I spoke with the salesman and he gave me a really good price.”
Man: “What price did he quote (give) you?”
Woman: “Only $80,000!”
Man: “Okay, but for that price I want it with all the options (special features; additions).”
Woman: “Great! Before we hang up, there’s something else…”
Man: “What?”
Woman: “I stopped by to see the real estate agent (a person’s whose job is to help people buy and sell homes and properties) this morning and I saw the house we had looked at last year. The price has dropped (declined).”
Man: “How much are they asking?”
Woman: “Only $650,000, a great price.”
Man: “Well, then go ahead and buy it if you can get the price to $620,000, okay?”
Woman: “Okay, honey. Thanks! I’ll see you later!! I love you!!!”
Man: Bye.”

The man hangs up and asks aloud, “Does anyone know to whom this phone belongs?”

    haha, it’s really funny. It seems like money always burns a hole in women’s pocket.

    it’s soooo funny!

    It is funny but impossible happen to a real life. First, you won’t grab on wrong phone. Even with a same model, but you would realize your husband/wife’s voice.

    It is great, I like it very much despite it is unreal. But as I am so fed up with cellphones that for me it is quite good to listen some jokes about them.
    In fact I hate the use that people do with such a thing. Mine is always off, and I have it only to phone home when I am out in order to see if everthing
    is o.k. with my wife. Thanks Lucy for the joke, I’ll try to remember the joke to tell it everybody.

    Some times I would like to have an advise in home that says: “Please, leave the
    cellphones off on this table, and take them again when you go out”.
    But probably no body should come home if they see the advise.
