detailing my car when i got a ridiculous phone call

So today after my orthodontist appointment this morning, I stopped by autozone to pick up a sheet of 3M 3000grit sand paper(this was more of a padded abrasive sheet). Anyways, my intend was to fill in rockchips with Dr.Colochip paint and sand out my mistakes from my last attempt where I didnt rub off the paint fully.

Got that done and decided to wash the rest of my car since it would look stupid if I left it with the hood and fenders all clean with the rest being filthy. I managed to do 3/5th's of the car before the phone rang. I had it outside for this very reason so I wouldnt have to run inside if it rang. Boy do I wish I never answered that call.

This woman, I think she called her Letisia or something like that. I forget, but she was looking for my brother, told he didnt live here anymore, so I gave her his cell phone number. I figured that would be it..

Well she started talking about some guy named Elan, like the reason she was trying to reach my brother was regarding this person. She then for some reason started talking about about how he was going to marry a girl named Amber, they had their wedding and then the guy caught the girl sleeping with a friend. He apparently beat the snot out of him and left him for dead, and then beat up the girl and left.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHY SHE TOLD ME THIS. Shocking, anyways, it was really hard to follow this woman because she was talking non stop, not a chance for me to get a word in. She then somehow started talking about one of her friends who apparently started doing promiscuous activities at the age of 11 and she would sneak out of her house at night and come back in the morning before her dad left for work. Then I guess we fast forwarded 10 years and then the same girl would see several guys as once and promise to be with them later that night but she would never show up. She would get like 10 guys waiting outside a club all waiting for her.

She then started talking about her health and how she has "many illnesses", I didnt dare ask what because I was trying to find a hole in the conversation to try and end it. But she just keeps talking and talking. Anyways, I guess she has died twice already and she obviously was revived, she said she was addicted to morphine and she was projected to only live 5 more years. She is on year 3, I felt really bad, but again, I didnt want to ask questions because one, I have NO IDEA WHO I AM TALKING TO, and we are currently at 25 minutes into it and asking question would make this take longer.

SO I guess she has a ton of health problems, she then started talking about her husband(I think) and how he was a total !@#$ and divorced her and stole all her tools (tools?), she had high quality tools I guess. So she would frequent a pawn shop and she knew the guy by name, she would buy tools from this guy. And he was a cigar smoker, I guess Letisia would complain and the guy was nice enough that anytime she came by, he would put out his cigar before she stepped inside. She told him it was bad for him and I guess he was diagnosed with lung cancer. She says that if it weren't for her hassling him to stop, he would have died according to the doctors.

She shot back to the divorce conversation now, I guess the promiscuous girl from before got married to a guy, and Letesia warned him about her, but he married her anyway. Well after a bit, she divorced him, and someone got his house and lots of money. All she cared about is money.. 40 minutes

She then started talking about how she goes to the local casino. She says she is lucky because she goes in with 30 bucks and leaves with a few hundred.

By now I found a hole in the conversation and I lied and said "Oh, looks my phone is about to die, its beeping at me". Instead of saying "Oh okay, bye". This opened up a whole new conversation, "Is yours a panasonic?" "Yes it is actually", "Yeah they are garbage, I am going to return my to walmart. Its only, but I am going to clean it with alcohol so it looks new, and then return it." We talked about phones for 5-10 minutes. She out of the blue said she was sorry for talking to me, I said it was okay. So now she has been talking for around 40 minutes now.

She started laughing randomly and said I sounded like Davey (no idea who this is) she talked about davey for a bit and then some other people. She then asked questions about me like how tall I was and my eye color. Very awkward.

Her dog started barking and went on about how her dog lived to be 20 yadayadayada. At this point I do not remember anymore, there were other subjects she talked about, but everything I typed is all I can remember.

By now I was going insane. I felt bad for her, but at the same I didn't know what to do. I didn't want to be rude and say I had to go, so I brought up the phone thing about how its gonna die soon and I was finally able to hang up the phone after talking to a woman I didn't know, who wasnt even calling to talk to me, after LISTENING TO HER TALK for 50 minutes. Sorry if this was hard to read or follow. But I just had to share because I was after that conversation.

I do not understand how woman do this. There is a lady I know who when she calls, I pray I can end the call quick because she will talk your ear off for half and hour easy if your the unlucky one to answer the phone.

Very likely she was on some sort of a drug, whether prescribed or not. I work in a auto parts store and get people telling me their life story all the time, I just let them ramble on until they get I'm not the right person to be having a conversation with since I'm "busy".

Re: detailing my car when i got a ridiculous phone call

That's a pretty funny story. I know how hard it is to get a person to stop talking when you don't want to listen to them anymore. I have a coworker just like the lady you were speaking to. She doesn't know when to stop or when I'm exhausted from listening to her. I wish I were at least interested in her stories, but alas, I am not.

I look at my Caller ID that is on the telephone. If I don't know the caller, let the answering machine take over.

I wouldn't have made it that far, I didn't even last through the whole post.
