Him: Yeah, I called the other day but no-one called back.
Me: Umm, yeah, I'm calling you now...
Him: So do you want me to come fix your drains now?
Me: [looking at the time and figuring I can be late for work, hell it's only the public service..] Sure, now would be ok with me.

Me: [confused] Umm, sure, ok - another time th-
Him: [cutting me off] I'll be there in half an hour. [hangs up]
Me: [talking to a dead phone] ..wha?
