People who you haven't spoken to for ages that call you out of the blue

shit

#1

Just got called by someone I haven’t seen for nearly three years and then probably a couple of years before that out of the blue. From Singapore! Twenty minute chat. Quite heavy. Not prepared for it.

DON’t DO IT!


#2

How were they?


#3

Did it to some uni friends the other week. They’re coming to stay over New Years now.

Bit much.


#4

Quite well. I feel slightly drained.


#5

I think you will feel less drained soon


#6

Got to interview someone in 30 minutes!


#7

Good luck @chris-budget!


#8

They will be charming and competent and you will feel refreshed for having met them


#9

I wish I did this. Loads of people I should call.


#10

i’d be profoundly disconcerted if anyone who isn’t my mum phoned me on the actual phone without prior warning or a specific emergency reason


#11

Usually a bit of a cry for help, but if we were close once I at least try to listen for a bit while panicking as always


#12

Fuck that. Already done two today and one was ok so could do without this guy putting a cat amongst the pigs.


#13

*tribute to Andrew Sachs.


#14

is it possible to be profoundly disconcerted?


#15

God rest his soul


#16

up to the disconcerted s’pose


#17

yes…?


#18

um, yes? what in the meaning of either of those words would suggest otherwise?


#19

Friend of mine I hear from every few years, always turns out he needs me to countersign his passport, he seems to lose a lot of passports
