55 - Operator

"Delaware sixty-five ten, please."

"Chesapeake seventy-eight nine one is also very nice."

"Delaware sixty-five ten, please."

"Are you sure? Sometimes once you've called, you find you don't want to talk to that person after all."

"Are you telling me I don't know what I want?"

"No, lady. I'm telling you I can't reach the connection!"













About Friday Flash 55: The challenge is to write a complete story in fifty-five words. If you've written a 55-flash, go let The G-Man know!

Now there's a job I would have really screwed up. How did they keep track of where all those wires go?

I think I've been given hints like this in a fast food line... and been similarly confused!
