Here's a first. I'm sitting in a restaurant this evening, waiting to rendez-vous with my friend Carri. "I'm ten minutes away," she calls to say. "Stay near your phone I'll call you back soon." "You got it!" I reply, then hang up. I then proceed to pack up everything in my bag and exit the restaurant, leaving my cell phone on the table. I seem to have a subconscious aversion to instruction compliance. When Carri called back, I told her what I did. "Okay, Mary. I'll meet you in front of The Gap. Throw your phone into a garbage can, I'll be there soon." It worked. I kept my phone close. Carri should have been a shrink.
