I just have to post a portion of Jeff and I's conversation the other day. I called him on his CELL phone and he was obviously distracted by something else. We were talking about how our days had gone and I knew he wasn't into the conversation because of how he was answering my questions. (some of you may have experienced this when Jeff is talking on the phone and watching TV)
All of the sudden he says:

Jeff: Hunny, I can't find my cell phone anywhere
Shelley: Jeff I called you on your phone it is in your hand.
(he wasn't listening and repeted)
Jeff: I think that I may have left it in my car?
(I am now frustrated that he wasn't listening to me and elevated my voice)
Shelley: Jeff, I am talking to you on your cell phone it is by your head!!!!!

He then finally realized his madness. You may be sitting a little to close to your computer hunny. Love ya!!

Oh my gosh! I am laughing so hard right now. And I'm at work so its not really laughing, it sounds like crying because I'm trying to muffle the sound. Tears steaming. THAT made my day!

In my defense, Shelley called me in the middle of a complicated project that I was deeply entrenched in. But I admit, it was pretty funny! :)

i am very picky about this sort of thing! I can't stand feeling like the person on the other end isn't listening... and they usually hear about it!

love the story!

That is so funny! I can always tell when Jason isn't paying attention, but it has never been that obvious! I want to hear about how work is going for you! Call me when you get a chance or I will call you!

been there, done that with jeff. as perfect as jeff is in so many ways, he is terrible conversation when he is watching tv.
shelly, i concede. your humor box is better than mine!

I think getting really into whatever you are doing is a Brown family trait because when Justin or Lainey are watching TV there is no way to get their attention!

LOL....I do this...not listening and looking for my phone while I am on it...more often than I care to admit.
