What We Have Here is a Failure to Communicate

A Conversation

“I took off work to be here.”

“But the parties settled Friday.”

“Its Monday. Why didn’t you call me?”

“Did you get a text?”


“Did you get an email?”


“Did you call the system?”


“Well, then you should have known we didn’t need you for jury duty.”

“I only got a busy signal.”


“You realize you’re phone system was broken all weekend?”

“Yes, we’re working on that.”
