I phoned someone to tell that yesterday I had sent each of my friends a text message,
“I can’t find my cell phone. Please dial my number ASAP. Thanks. Nearly everyone called back immediately. This leads me to conclude that my friends are not the brightest people in the world.”
The person to whom I was talking exclaimed, “Wait, what about the cell phone, did you find it or not ?”
Yet another confirmation of my conclusion . . . .
