So I'm sitting here at a Starbucks, watching people go by and idiot kids try to catch pokemons on their phones, because it's preferable to going into anthropologie with wifey.
Anyway, this dude next to me takes a call and it's his buddy. They talk about random stuff until the other guy needs to go talk to his wife or something, so they ring off.
Which brings me to my point - I have never in my life had a buddy who I would call or be called just to shoot the shit. Every call has been with a specific purpose - where the fuck are you, can I borrow your car, did you end up going home with that skank last night - and then we hang up. Hanging out in person, absolutely. Did it every day before I got a wife and a job. But it's so unnatural calling someone just to have someone to talk to.
Admittedly I don't like talking on the phone, period. but I don't see a lot of guys do what this dude did, either. So maybe I'm not alone in this
Perhaps the call had a specific purpose but then extended on to other random topics.
Also, no self-respecting SF member would be caught in a Starbucks. Everyone knows that shit is objectively the worst.
