Would this bother you?

    I am wondering how you would react and if you would be bothered under this scenario?

    Your spouse and a teenage child head out in the morning. You are told they will be home between 1:00 and 2:00.  Come 3:30, you hear nothing, so you text, no reply.  Around 4:00 you try calling, it goes straight to voice mail.  You call the teens phone, it won’t go through. You call several more times, same results.  You ask your other grown kids if they heard from their parent … no.  At 4:45, 3ish HOURS past expected home time, you finally get a call. 

    Are you bothered?  Do you care?

    Respect, honor and politeness  go together. In a world of constant connection, yeah, most people would be bothered unless the place they were going had poor signal towers, or a busy event that kept them off the phone.

    Also, are they the missing persons upset and apologetic as well? This is missing from the narrative.

    Is someone telling you to NOT be upset? Did the wife/teen give you a return time or a time to have them call back, etc?

        Smart phones  do die or fad out.  People do lose track of time.   We have lost the pay phone!

        What is the rest of  the story ? ?
