A Sweet Resolution

Me: “Hello. This is [Name].”

(There is lots of very loud static on the phone, making it difficult for me to hear the person.)

Caller: “Hello?”

Me: “Can you hear me?”

Caller: “Hello?!”

Me: “Your phone has a lot of static. I’m having trouble hearing you.”

Caller: “HELLO?! CAN YOU HEAR ME? PEOPLE CAN’T HEAR ME AND I CAN’T HEAR THEM!”

Me: “YOU’VE GOT A LOT OF LOUD STATIC THAT SOUNDS LIKE A PLASTIC WRAPPER!”

(The static stops.)

Caller: “Oh! That’s because I was opening a candy! Thanks for your help!”

(The caller hung up, and my face met the desk.)
