Why I don't tweet

- So. I dropped the car off at the mechanic's to diagnose a problem we’re having.

- Big problem?

- Didn’t know yet. But I told Charlie – that’s my mechanic – that I’d go down to the bagel store while he checked out the problem, and catch up on some of my work.

- And he’d call you when he was done.

- Well, there’s the problem. I forgot to bring my cell phone.

- So what did you do?

- I told him I'd be back in about an hour. But two hours went by, and I was deep in some project, and I didn't check my watch. . .

- So what happened next?

- The owner of the bagel shop yelled from the counter, "Is there anyone here expecting a call from Local Garage?"

- How mortified were you?

- I don't forget my cell phone anymore.

- Do you remember to turn it on?

- . . .
