Timing is Everything

Recently I was catching up with a girlfriend and our conversation turned to the subject of men. She was very frustrated. She met a guy who demonstrated interest in her and asked for her number. Then he never called. It had been several days and when they talked they had even discussed the possibility of getting together the following week...but she hadn't heard from him. I could hear the frustration, confusion and questioning in her voice. And I could sympathize with her disappointment. Women everywhere know this feeling and men everywhere misunderstand it.

Just as we were on the verge of hating this guy forever, she glanced at her phone and saw that she had a missed call from earlier in the day. As she listened to her voicemail she started cracking up laughing and said "I'm an idiot."

He had called.
