My Phone Is Dying

| Iselin, NJ, USA | Working | August 4, 2013

(My grandmother has just passed away, and we are cleaning her apartment out when the phone rings. My dad answers.)

Dad: “Hello?”

Automated Voice: “Hello, this is a message from [grandmother’s synagogue] for [grandmother]. To hear the message now, press one. If you want us to call back, press two.”

Dad: “Well, we might as well press one and hear it.” *presses 1*

Automated Voice: “Hello, this is [synagogue] with sad news. Congregant [grandmother] passed away yesterday. Funeral services will be at [date] and [time].”

Dad: “Did they really just call her to tell her she died?”
