„I was late for lunch today. When I came to the cafe, my friend was already sitting on the terrace, obviously involved in a exhausting phone call, where he was just a little bit of a word. Only occasionally he tried a „… yes… but…”, or „No! That’s not true…” as an answer choice. Unsuccessful.
After a few minutes when I already had my cappuccino before me, he put the phone aside.
„Mother!”, he just said. „My mother! I’m over 50 now and she still treats me like a baby.”
„What was it about today?”, I asked curious.
„Oh! She reminded me of my sister’s birthday.”
„Your sister? She had the birthday last week!”
„Now you start!”, he cried.” – Peter Moser
