I have a hypothetical question for all of you. I’m going to describe a certain scenario and I want you to imagine it is your scenario and then tell me what you would be thinking. I shall describe this situation specifically for the ladies for the sake of detail, but you men just turn the tables and imagine it is you instead.
Okay, so your hubby (or wife for you men) is the main driver of a specific car that he keeps pretty trashed all the time but has recently cleaned it out. This car has a console, a glove box and a drawer underneath the front passenger side seat.
You have not been in this car for months.
Then say you, for whatever reason, are in the car and he is not. You start poking around because you’re bored and he is taking forever running into a store and you have nothing better to do besides snoop around. After all… it is your car, too and you are curious.
So, you open up the drawer under the passenger side seat where you are sitting and in this drawer you find a few pieces of junk mail, a CD case and a cell phone you have never seen before. It is not your cell phone nor is it your husband’s cell phone and when he gets back in the car, you ask him about it.
Say then that the husband tells you that he’s never seen this phone before in his life and hasn’t a clue how it got there. Then, say you power it on and poke through it and find it to be…. really, really empty. There is only one unnamed phone number in the phonebook but there are a number of calls back and forth in the call log all to the same number. Then say you hit the send button right then and there and dial that fucker but no one picks up.
Imagine if you suddenly saw the screen saver on the phone pop up and discover that it is butterflies, making it obviously belonging to a woman.
Now, your husband still says that he has never seen it before in his life and perhaps it belonged to the wife of some guy he gave a ride to last week and he must have dropped it in the car.
Somehow, he managed to drop it right into your drawer and is so unconcerned about it that he hasn’t asked your husband if he has seen it. And, of course, your husband is still saying he has never ever before seen this phone and has no idea how it made it’s way there.
Say this is the same husband who called you two weeks ago and told you he was working late and then when you tried to reach him at his job hours later you discovered that he had been off for hours. It might be the same husband who then came home at 2 in the morning still claiming to have been at work until you tell him that you called there and know damned well that he wasn’t. Then, just to make it interesting, say the husband then tried to tell you that he went to a bar BY HIMSELF for the past five hours and just sat there all alone.
So. Mystery cell phone that the (female) owner has made no attempt to call or locate or inquire about in a drawer (not on the floor) of your husband’s car and he is dumbfounded about it.
Tell me, hypothetically speaking of course, what do you think is going on here???
