Silencing Both Parents At The Same Time

, , , , | Related | October 18, 2019

(It’s a weekend. My father is sleeping in. My mother is cleaning stuff off of the kitchen counter while I find myself some breakfast. My father’s phone trills with a text message. His text tone is fairly loud and obnoxious.)

Mother: “Ugh, not again.”

Me: “What?”

Mother: “Your father uses the setting where the phone rings every five minutes until you answer the text. It’s driving me crazy. I can’t wait until he gets up so he can answer it.”

Me: *wordlessly picks up the phone and turns it on silent*

Mother: “Oh… that works.”

(Glad my childhood computer classes, ownership of the same type of phone, and ability to use my brain came in handy.)
