Put Down Your Phone!

“I’ve noticed that your comments on various online sites have become rather mercurial,” Frank’s wife, Ingrid, said.

“It’s just so temping to troll all of those idiots on Twitter and Facebook. They post the dumbest things,” Frank said in his defense. “I get so damn angry at all these assholes hiding behind the anonymity of social media.”

“Unless you want to give yourself a heart attack, Frank, it’s essential that you put down your phone and relax,” Ingrid said.

“Fine,” Frank said. “I wouldn’t want to make a widow out of you, Ingrid, so I’m going to shut off my phone and go take a nap.”

Hallelujah!” Ingrid shouted!

      That’s why I don’t have a Twitter account.

    I was going to share a song hereunder, but then found the full lyrics. Hm; I thought it was about putting down the phone or locking it and looking at the girl when you’re with her. But it is different from that. 😕
