i ran across this on burbia.com, which is a dumb website with dumb content, but this really struck me for some reason. apparently a plumber transcribed it from his voicemail...whatever.

Woman's Voice: [from plumber's voicemail recording, 3:35 a.m.] Hi, sorry to bother you. You’re probably asleep. I’m still not comfortable with the drip. (pauses, music in background, woodwinds, sounds like marching band)
Woman's Voice, Cont: I know it’s late. But could you check it again? Not now. You’re probably asleep, I know. I know I’m crazy, right? I don’t care for drips. I hate them for some reason. They keep...you know. Obviously, that’s why they’re drips. (laughs)
Woman's Voice, Cont: Call me, please. Nothing urgent. Can wait until the morning, I guess. (pauses) Later in the morning. (pauses) Maybe I should shut the bathroom door, I don't know. Maybe that would help. If I shut the door. I don't think so, because it'd still be dripping really.


so sad, somehow. also it sounds like it's straight out of salinger's glass family
