How Important Could This Call Be?

The other night as I was leaving work and heading to my car, I couldn't help but notice a woman standing in the middle of the street.

The way she's slightly leaning forward, as if she's straining, I'm thinking she might have hurt herself or maybe dropped something important into the street (wallet, money, etc). It's dark, so I strain my eyes to see a little better. I even start veering towards her in case I decide to offer help.

As I get closer, I realize that this is not a woman straining to find her $50 bill in the street. She's trying to hear something on her CELL PHONE. Stopped. In the middle of the effing street, deeply engaged in a conversation.

It took everything in me not to pull up to her and lay on my horn. Everything.
