Texting with Frank

As my longtime readers know, texting with Frank is an exercise in tapping keys on the phone while simultaneously slitting my wrists.

Of course, Frank is now in his 3rd year of college. During non-pandemic times he lives in a dorm. He has a job bagging groceries and collecting carts at the store. So you'd think this kind of insanity would wane, right?

Oh, hell no.

The other night I texted to remind him that I'd be picking him up at the store when his shift ended at 8:00. This is what came back:



Like Mary says: "I can always tell when Frank texts you because you suddenly start swearing."

I cannot wait for the follow up on this 1!

I'd be more concerned if the text continued: "Do not, under any circumstances, call the police."

It's never good when "It's a long story." (or is it just always amusing to everybody else?)

You cannot just leave us hanging. What (or who) was waiting to go in the back seat when you got there?

Don't tell Mom!

We MUST have the ending to this tale!!!

Ms. Donna said...

Suspect jono is right, and involving Mrs. G will lead to more grief. For you. And like the others, I am dying to know what caused this txt. Hope all is OK and it is funny.

KIDS.

Remember, it's down, not across.

As long as he didn't ask for you to bring a body bag, it will probably turn out OK.

Is it a St. Bernard? Or some other breed of large wet dog? Asking for a friend who is a mother of a child who may be distantly related to Frank. Shawn. His name is Shawn.

I'm with Swannie.

"It's a long story" translates to:
"_____ did ____ because he thought it would be hilarious' and it was except for the part where I got covered in ___ and that's why I'm wearing these janitor coveralls. Sorry about the stench from the back seat. ____ said the smell would go away in a few days."
