I’d like to welcome you to the 21st Century. There’s this new invention that you may or may not have heard of. We call this “call waiting”. You see, it allows people to call you even though you’re on the other line. You’d actually hear a beeping and could switch over to see who is calling you.
In this case, the person calling would be me to deliver the message that Claude may be coming out with us on Friday. Sadly, your lack of willingness to join the rest of us in the 21st century is prohibiting me from giving you this wonderful news.
I hope you’re happy. I hope you’re happy now.
Your “friend” who is way hipper and more modern than you,
