Actual conversation my friend had with her son’s school choir director:
A: So, my son called me on my cell phone at lunch to tell me there is a choir concert TONIGHT at 7:30. Did I miss a flyer?
CD: No, I didn’t send one home.
A: Ah, did I miss the phone call?
CD: No, I didn’t call, I sent an email.
A: Oh. I definitely did not get an email.
CD: Well, I can’t help it if not everyone checks their email.
A: Oh, I check my email. I have a Blackberry. My email checks me. I for sure did not get an email. Are you sure I am on your list?
A: Um, so how do know if the email got sent to me?
CD: I don’t.
