I leave my cell phone on silent at night, waking up curiously each morning to messages from late-night-texters. However, being a fairly light sleeper, if someone calls me in the middle of the night... then I'm almost always awaken by the vibrating of my phone.
Someone, who I have yet to identify, called me a few nights ago and told me they had a dream that we were drowning and needed to check to make sure I was okay. Someone called me a few weeks ago (11 times!) to see if I could get them into a bar, assuming I was there. Someone called me on Friday night to see if I was working, and was extremely apologetic for waking me up.
I got into an arguement with my parents about it, who can't even comprehend why I would have my cell phone anywhere near me while I sleep. "My best friends wouldn't call if it wasn't important! What if one of my friends needed to talk? Like, really badly?" My weak comeback fell on deaf ears.
Usually, I don't answer, but it's nights like last night that I'm reminded why I don't just stick my phone under a pillow.
"Hannah, I don't know what to do. I'm not happy..."
I'll probably delete this.
